Re: Inaccessible Geeklists
It's a puzzle... or a treasure hunt.

The challenge is finding a pathway.

Good Luck!

On http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/lists/user/huber?domain=bo... you can click on the number of thumbs for those lists. This leads you to http://boardgamegeek.com/geekrecommend.php?action=whorecomme... for one of them, which gives you the ID of the list, which you can then use to access the list.

Re: Inaccessible Geeklists
Oh right, thanks. I actually went through those very steps, but didn't realise that the URL of the page would contain the info needed.

It's a puzzle folded into a mystery covered by an enigma wrapped in a soft flour tortilla. It's quite tasty.

Boo. Shouldn't give the actual links. At least make people follow the procedure and work for it.

Also, you can look on huber's profile for the date and time the list was posted and just brute force geeklist #s since they are chronological.

I used to live by a non-profit organization that encouraged people to donate/trade animal-related items like leashes, portable kennels, and so on. The URL for "Animals Exchange" always had me thinking that the services they offered were something completely different...

I always liked the Arrested Development joke where Tobias Fünke was an Analyst/Therapist... Great business card.

That's what I did. It seems the easiest method, if you know what you're looking for.
