I'm trying to link folks directly to their "my games" tab on a game page such as:

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/38386/castle-all-sea...

however without knowing exactly what the extraneous descriptive string, in this case "castle-all-seasons" when BGG redirects for example

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/38386//mygames/colle...

it redirects it to

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/38386/castle-all-sea...

having lost the path info Ideally I'd like to use "thing" in place of "boardgame" while having bgg preserve the rest of the path info on redirect url.

Ironically I want to point folks directly to their collection data from the OLWLG due to a bgg xml api "feature" in that if a collection record has any fields under "Customize Game Info (title, image)" the collection xml api in the VERSION element omits the sub-element ITEM that has the version-id (if set of course).

Also ironic is that the custom game info has a field for "bar code" which BGG does *not* support in version-id info and in fact has discouraged putting bar code (upc) data in the "product code" field for a version record.
