For this view of categories

http://boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgamecategory

Could alphabetization be rearranged so that it goes down first column, then down second column?

So instead of
a b
c d
e f
g h

you use:

a e
b f
c g
d h

I find the top method impossible to read.

Same thing for mechanics.

Yeah, that's pretty messy. It seems like the problem stems from the excess white space between the columns. I windowed the browser and narrowed it, and when the columns are side-by-side it's readable. Maybe an easy solution would be to make it so the columns don't span the width of the browser and instead just adjust to the width of the text in the table.

Or maybe even scrap the whole Categories and Mechanics and Families current setup and have a flexible system similar to current "Tags"

You can do an "Advanced Search" to find games with a particular set of Categories and Mechanics.

Within BGG can't select games based on being in multiple families, or if game is on two geeklists.
