It, in theory, shouldn't be to hard to offer the geek over IPv6. Would it even be remotely possible at this time?

I guess the bigger question is, why would they want to?

It wouldn't have a huge benefit, but it would be fun! You could even set it up so that each game had its own IP address and DNS record: agricola.boardgamegeek.com could be 2001:0DB8::1 and monopoly.boardgamegeek.com could be 2001:0DB8:eadeadead and so on.

You could do this now with IPv4, but no one had setup websites that way since the 90's.

All of the websites have a DNS record, they all resolve the the same IP address and the webserver uses the url string to send you to the correct page. Why would you undo that just because you start using IPv6 and have a lot more addresses. It seems to me that it would be a pain in the ass to manage a site like that.

I find that with IT solutions if you are doing something because it is fun for little benefit you are most of the time making a mistake.
