Customize View for a game permits you to see a section with geeklists the game is in.

But Customize View for a designer doesn't permit this, even though designers can be in geeklists.

This is a practical problem because people create redundant geeklists like http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/56208/women-game-designers since they can't easily find that there's already a geeklist with a given designer in it.

I wouldn't call it a bug but a lack of feature - a lack of a useful feature, that is.

Hmm, I guess we don't actually know if it's a bug (i.e. there was an intent to display GeekLists as one of the layout options for designers, just like for Games, Game Families, etc, but due to some bug it's not showing up) or a lack of a feature (i.e. there was no conscious intent to display GeekLists in the Designer layout).

Either way, it would be useful if it would be fixed/added/whatever. And I would hope and (I think) reasonably expect it's probably not hard to do.

It would also be nice to have this for publishers for which the feature is also missing.
