I probably have missed something, but I wonder were the link in the Profile section went, which directed to a BGG-section that gave you a list of recommended games, based on your current game-ratings?

The function's still there, but the link is gone. Try

and add it to your QuickBar.

Thanks for the reply and the link!

Now let me ask some important questions: Why was the link removed? Is it removed by mistake or on purpose? Will it be back?

I'm not an admin (sometimes I wish I were) but I think the answers to that questions are:

1) Probably because of some thing they missed. It went missing some time ago.
2) I believe I read somewhere it was a mistake.
3) Yes. That's what they said.

The admins are probably up to their cheeks in work now, with RPG Geek up and going, and the GeekDo umbrella to keep track of, and what I believe is another database change for BGG, to make it in line with the RPG Geek database model, and also an upcoming VideoGameGeek site.

Sorry for bringing this back up again, but the link still isn't back. I would hate to see new users who never saw this function are missing out. So anyone knows what the latest status is? I already posted this issue on the Geek Bugs page.

I know it works like that (even for me ;)), but that was not my point. :) My point is that is would be a shame if new users don't know about this link and it is only used by some who know this direct link.

Brings to mind something else: Now your personal recommendations list is based on the ratings from 8 and higher. What about including all the games you have rated? So if you rated a game a low score, then all games associated with this game go down on the list. This way your rankings work for all your rankings instead of only the ones you like. What do you think?

Contrary to seemingly most BGG, I'm trying to find motives to get rid of games.

Anyone has a link to some official explanation about the (temporary ?) removal of this feature's link ?

OK.. You all suck!! Every one of you who had a part in this thread. I had never seen that feature before and now it has just cost me $250. You all suck!!

Seriously it would be a shame to not get this linked again. It is a very cool feature. Although from the looks of it my link was sponsered by Steve Jackson Games. shake
