I would love an option under a game entry that would allow me to view the personal comments of anyone that has both added a comment and a rating.

When I research out a game, I like to look at both positive and negative comments, but to find the comments associated with low ratings on a game with many ratings you have to sift through many pages of N/A ratings that hold little meaning.

I think number of plays would help as well. Not everyone records plays, but this information could help lend credibility to the comments.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

Just add '&comment=1' to the url for the list of ratings.

Or just go to the comments view. People rarely comment without rating.

That's pretty useful. Looks like you can add any view(s) to any other view as well by adding the relevant bit of URL (it also works on an individuals collection):

&own=1
&prevowned=1
&rated=1
&fortrade=1
&want=1
&wanttobuy=1
&wanttoplay=1
&wishlist=1
&comment=1
&wantparts=1
&hasparts=1

Sadly adding '&numplays=1' to the URL doesn't do anything.

But if looking at an individual's collection, adding '&played=1' does.

It would be cool if the filters for a user collection and an item collection had the same options. For instance then you could filter a game for everybody who had rated it a certain value and added a comment.

Not so. Just looking at Agricola, the last 12-13 pages of comments all lack a rating, which is what prompts my suggestion.

I'd like to see this too. Or alternatively, how about introducing an additional comment field which people can use for private notes? Then all of the "on my watch list" and "Essen 2009" entries could be tucked away under the latter, and hidden from the comments view.
