I'm a relative newcomer to BGG. A few weeks ago a few changes occurred to the RSS feeds I was receiving, and my investigation of those changes led to more questions. I could not find answers to these questions in the forums, so I'm posting them now.

1. I previously received feeds with the full text of reviews. Thanks to this system, I learned about and bought three new games (Pandemic, Mr. Jack, Dominion). Now, I can only find feeds whose posts contain links to reviews. I can see the name of the review and the name of reviewed game, but I'm not familiar with a game how do I know if I want to read a review about it? It was much better when I could quickly scan the reviews that appeared in my reader.

2. Suppose I want to receive all new contributions about the game Dominion. Subscribing to http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forum/rss/0/thing/36218 seems to give me the first post of every forum thread, but not replies. Subscribing to http://www.boardgamegeek.com/item/rss/thing/36218 lets me see follow-ups in the forum, but I don't get to see files that are uploaded. And if I go to http://www.boardgamegeek.com/recentadditions and try to create a custom feed based on my games, I'm told "No RSS feed for collection filtering."

Can anyone PLEASE help advise how I can get the feeds I want? Many thanks in advance.

BTW, I use Google Reader, but don't believe that's the source of the problem.

You're not alone. A few weeks ago I noticed the RSS feed seemed a lot less reliable, and I started getting replies before I got the original posts. Now I seem to only get updates after a certain number of posts are made or something. I know that there's been posts in 4 of the Wasabi! forums, but I haven't gotten any updates on that game in a week.

(I'm also on Google Reader BTW)
