There is already a Geeklist section on each game's page (along with forums, files, etc.). It would be cool if a new section could be added that had only the geeklists that are check-marked as auction/selling.

That way, when I want to purchase a used copy of Monopoly: Power Rangers 20th Anniversary Edition Game because the Marketplace prices are too high, I can just go to the game page, click on 'recent' for the auction geeklists, and see if any auctions are going on, instead of wading through all the auctions posted on the Geekbay forums just to see if anyone has the game I'm looking for.

I think this would be great for buyers to find what they need, sellers to sell their games more easily through auction, and for BGG to get a 3% cut of higher sales because people will be more easily aware of what is available.

Until such a time, you can also use http://bggauctions.workingasintended.com/auctions/
to find a specific game up for auction, if the auction has been listed on the metalist:

It would be great to generalize this and provide some way of tagging and filtering geeklists in general. As it stands, most geeklists are just noise that has very little to do with grouping games in any meaningful way, so that the fact that a given game appears in a list (and thus that such a list appears on the game's page) is almost meaningless.
