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

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

it redirects it to

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.
