    Short version: I want to be able to add individual achievements to my To-Do list from everywhere, and I want to Boosting Club/List still be a thing.

    A slightly longer version, part one: Yes, you can click on each individual achievement, go to its page and add it from there, but, first, it’s a pain, and, second, there is no indication that this achievement in your To-Do list outside of list itself. Sure, if you want to keep track of just a couple of achievements, that’s probably fine, but if you working out what you wanna do on your first playthrough, or how many achievements you gonna easily get from a game you probably not gonna finish, or… Seriously, do I need to justify this feature? Everyone on this website has at least one, probably more like ten, use scenarios for a To-Do list and most of them are way less useful now if at all. Bring those buttons/indicators back!

    Part two: Yes, we have Gaming sessions, but it was so easy to go to a Booster Club/List, see a couple of people currently on the site, send them a message and here you go, that pesky multiplayer-only achievement is done! I finished at least a couple of games like that and I hate multiplayer games. And, btw, those Clubs/Lists are still there, there’s just no way to access them anymore. Well, you can dig game’s ID from a page’s code and add it to trueachievements.com/boostgame.aspx?gameid= (example: https://www.trueachievements.com/boostgame.aspx?gameid=7925 ), but how useful that would be in a month when no one adds games to their lists, because there is no way to use them? Bring it back!

    Yes, especially the boost club/list.

    These are especially useful for when it's a game your friends don't have or don't want to do, and you only need one other person. Especially when it's a less popular game. It's perhaps unnecessary to set up a session for just two people, and many won't check frequently enough to catch the session for those types of games.

    Being able to see the list, and see who is currently online, seriously expedited the process countless times. Perhaps the most useful feature currently missing in the build.

    Side note: How do I get a list of what wishlist items I've currently got votes counted on? So that I can get some votes back to upvote this.

    We really need the boosting list. =(

    Maybe put it on the side, under the Game Information panel.Anywhere is better than nowhere.
    We have the estimated time in the Game Information and now an Estimated time icon in the game banner, one some centimeters away from the other.
    And don't have a boosting list because of tiny phone screens... roll

    Another great question! I think I saw some list in the right column, but I’m not sure if it was for votes, I can’t find it now anyway.

    The boost list is key especially in older or niche games where there aren’t a lot of players. If there are lots of potential players and you can play at peak times then sessions are fine. But sometimes you need to send people messages to work out a mutually convenient time.

    Agree completely. These deficiencies were brought up by multiple users in the new site beta and full launch announcement/faq/bug report threads, but I don't recall them being acknowledged, which is strange.

    Yes to both of these, especially the To Do list
    I think I worded that terribly

    Wholeheartedly agree on the to-do list. I've been a pro subscriber for a decade now, and the To-Do list is my most heavily used feature. Disappointing that the site upgrade took away the ability to add individual achievements to the to-do list. Now have to add an entire game and individually remove the achievements I didn't want; it's a terrible flow.

    ^as noted by OP you can add individual achievements to to do list, you just need to go to the achievement page itself like

    SubnauticaSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Subnautica worth 378 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement


    see mid right below achievement details but above solution

    Which is a lot of hassle if you want to add several achievements
