Is it possible to search a geeklist? Was looking at the thread of Card Sleeve Sizes or Games which very kindly has links in the banner to the start of the first letter of the list, but was wondering if there was a way to go directly to a game among the 1000+ items.

TIA

Not really possible to search within a geeklist for a game.

You can go from the specific game to the geeklist. (That can be a problem as well since some of the more popular games are on many many geeklists, and "joke" geeklists tend to get a lot of thumbs.)

You can also flip the geeklist by "page", until you pass the name, then go back one "page." Look between header and geeklist items for "pages."

----------

PS - I like "header" on geeklist to be small. Put comments in "first" comment on list. That way you can flip through page numbers without having to scroll down which is a pain.

Fantastic addition. Thanks for catching the point I missed.

A long list will still page, but many fewer pages. Of course to do the browser search the game must be on the page which is being displayed.

Thanks, that does 250 per page which is a good work-around. Don't imagine there are many over 250.
