Anyone having a problem downloading their game collection .csv file? Right after the March 30 switch it was timing out. About a week later it was working again. Now, however, it is timing out again. It's been that way for about a week or so. I've tried different machines, different locations, etc. Still no luck.

Anyone else?

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet.

I just tried. Didn't have any problem.

Edit: I was also able to download your collection, but it took a lot longer than mine because yours is so much bigger shake

Dang! Well, I appreciate your help. I can't for the life of me figure out what's wrong then.

Craig, I'll give it a try - likely it's just taking so long to generate that our load balancer is timing you out.

If your collection exceeds a certain size, you can't do it anymore.
Which is a real pity soblue

But I got help from other friendly Geeks, and they recommended me a different way for download - although, you won't get all the data (but most of it):
http://boardgamegeek.com/geekcollection.php?action=exportcsv...

In the link above, just replace my username with yours. The keyword here is "brief=1".

Aldie, is this something that will be fixed in the future?

Is there any chance this could be tweaked up a little? I think this export in particular is slower than it used to be since both your and my collection worked in the past (for a game-choosing tool) but don't now :(

I contacted Aldie again to see if there has been any movement on this issue.
