I use my wishlist to figure out what I want to get. After that, I have to figure out where I'm going to get it from, which is a complicated process involving a spreadsheet. I'd like to be able to do some or all of these:

(a) get a print-friendly view of my wishlist
(b) export my wishlist to CSV
(c) make private notes on my wishlist (so that when I email it to my dealer he's not offended my the fact that he is not my only dealer).

Derk and Aldie don't have anything else to do, do they?

Yes! Yes! I would love for the wishlist feature to have more details, especially notes. I would like to (for example) explain which specific Crokinole board to get, or highlight the English names of German games, or even provide a handy URL where my "Wishlist Buyers" can conveniently find this stuff. (They often complain that my game wishes are obscure! Can you believe that? Maybe it's because you can't buy "Die Rückkehr der Helden" at Wal-mart.)

on the subject of wishlists... I would actually appreciate a dynamic RSS feed for wishlists...

e.g. the url would be something like:
Grimwold wrote:
ht tp://boardgamegeek.com/wishlist.xml?user=Grimwold


and the xml file would be parsed for php to create an xml feed for the users wishlist.

This would be nice, but you can fake this now by logging out and looking at your wishlist from a non-user's perspective. All the editing is disabled, so it is more printer friendly.

I would love to have access to my game comment from my wishlist, too.
