I have a proposition for a BGG improvement, don't know if anyone has mentioned this before. I suggest that the following optional columns be added to the collection and wishlist viewing pages :
-game genre
-playing time
-number of players
and other such important information about the games.
Btw I got a brilliant idea today on how to make a pile of money from the numerous boardgame geeks out there, I would write and sell an Android app to mine information from BGG (like which of your games can you play with N available people) and serve it up on your smartphone, and I googled it and found out it had already been done (and that's not the first time such a thing has happened too) ! Is there nothing left for an ordinary guy like me to invent that someone else hasn't already invented !?

Sorry for ripping apart your post:
1. Please use a useful subject.
2. Please post such suggestions in the "BGG Suggestions" forum.
3. The "BGG Suggestions" forum has link to the BGG Suggestion Index, here you could see that (as with the app) you are not the first one who has this idea: Item for Geeklist "The BGG Suggestions Index"
4. Regarding the pile of money: Save some of the money for your lawyers if you do this.

But yes, I want this feature, too.
