I have placed 211 games in my collection. Some I own, Some I have owned previously, some are on a wish list, some I have played in person or online, and some I am keeping a half-interested eye towards.

Now while I can utilize filters to include or exclude games I have rated or those I have not, and the same for owned, previously owned, played, wishlist, etc... Sometimes I don't want to generate a list that excludes all the games of that given trait.

So what I propose is this: have a tickbox which defaults to being checked and to include, which one can tick off to exclude. With such functionality, one could quickly generate lists without the site having to manage so many divergent traits. Want to know all the train games you've rated, either owned or played? four filters, or one tickbox.

Thank you for giving this any amount of consideration.

I want to see if I understand you correctly:

Four filters or one tick for every non-train game you own?

Yeah, I see now that I worded that example poorly.

Perhaps someone with a better grasp of the database structure can still make a good idea out of it.

maybe have the box default unticked and then you have to tick to include what you want.
