When I click to "Download Board Games: Owned", it asks me to wait a few moments while the download is prepared. Eventually I get mail.

The problem is - the mail says to click "here". When I do...it again says to wait patiently while my list is prepared, and sure enough, it generates ANOTHER e-mail with ANOTHER link. If I click the link in the original mail, I'll get multiple additional e-mails.

If I click the "here" link in any of these 2nd generation mails, I get a download properly. This obviously isn't working correctly, though, and can only be putting more tax on your systems.

Using Safari 8.0.3 on Mac.

Interesting... I've used chrome to download my collection many times with no issues. I'm going to try it now to see whether something has changed.

[edit] That was fast; downloaded 'all' (which in my case results in a 662k csv file) with no issues. There must be something else going on.

For the benefit of anyone trying to sort this out, here's what I'm running:

I just downloaded your collection. If you make changes while it's generating, then it will need to regenerate the collection again. Could that have been the case?

Update: it seems the link in the geekmail is at fault. I'll look into it further.

Re: Issue downloading my games
No, I wasn't making any adjustments at the time. This appears to have been fixed now - the resulting e-mail had an actual link to download instead of the "here" link.
