Drilling down through Menu option "My Geek/Profile".

On Games page of User Profile Notebook, there is section labeled "Game Info herace". At the bottom there is a control "Personalized Recommendations".

It has three checkboxes.
Hide Games Owned
Hide Games on Wishlist
Show results in collection editor format

What do these controls do? They don't hide any games in my collection from me. I can log out of the system and still see both my collection and my wishlist.

I guess I need some coffee.

Thanks,
Herb

Ask and you shall receive!

This feature lists games which you might like based on your ratings.

Personalized Recommendations tries to recommend games you will like by comparing games you have rated highly with how other BGG users have rated games. The hide check boxes then filter the result. As you haven't rated any games yet, nothing will show up for you yet.

EDIT: to make clearer

What a great feature! I wish it wasn't hidden. I discovered 4 games I owned on the list, lol.

Thanks for the replies.

I threw some high ratings on a enough games to finally get the system to recommend some more. After that I can see what is happening.

Is this still available or do I need an idiot guide to find it?

I don't think it's available via the menus any more, but it is still running - yours is here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/robertcompton/recommendati...

I remember the personalization link - haven't seen it quite a while. Doesn't mean it is not lurking somewhere else.

For possible game recommendations - I use the ratings of my geekbuddy list.
Profile -> Geekbuddies -> Ratings
