I just noticed that I have an entry in my wishlist that has a blank name and an alternate name of "4458". Searching for 4458 in games results in nothing. I assume this is just some site bug, but I want to make sure I don't delete a game I'm interested in, does BGG order games by number, and if so can you look them up by number?

thanks
Ken

You can look up any game by its game ID by entering it directly into the URL.

Like this:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/4458

That number doesn't bring up an entry. Maybe it was a duplicate entry or something. Perhaps an admin might know what that number used to be.

I did a little looking and the game ids 4457-4459 return the message "That game does not exist."

Looks like the game was removed from the database. I will fix it so that games that don't exist anymore won't show up.

OK, thanks. Any chance of finding out what game it was? If it was deleted as a duplicate, I'd like to add it back in, I've spent a fair bit of time browsing to build the wishlist.

Thanks again for an awesome site and such a responsive forum!
