Game Info Unobtainable Warning box on-click behaviors

This is probably a small little page behavior I'd like to see. In the side-bar game info box on a game page, we have an extra warning box that appears when discontinued or unobtainable achievements exist in the game. Could we possibly get some on-click behaviors on this box? I personally would like it to show only those achievements when clicking the box. Some people might prefer to filter those achievements out. Maybe it could rotate through normal view, only those, and filtered out?

And before it comes up, yeah, you can use the View settings to filter those achievements, but it's realistically a LOT of clicks compared to what could be a single click.
My signature keeps changing itself.

If the View box weren't practically right next to the box I might agree, but it's only a few clicks more not far from where you want. I just want see any real benefit to it.

I don't see the point of doing this for discontinued or unobtainable, but it would be awesome for games with Partly Discontinues/Unobtainable. You could click the box and see what situation would make the achievements discontinued or unobtainable. That way you can tell if you are able to unlock them or not.

I would like to be able to click on the warning box to see which achievement is unobtainable.
Right now, I have to scroll down through a list of 50 (or more with DLC) achievements and watch for the tiny unobtainable symbol next to it.

Refer to the first two posts that mention the view box.

First of all, thanks for pointing that out, I've missed that option completely until now.

However, I feel my point still stands:

Right now, I have to: click view box > click "Clear all flags" > click the unobtanable flag > click "Apply"

vs. one click on the big red "This game has unobtainables!" box.

I agree that this is only a minor issue, but it would still improve site usability in my opinion.

Brilliant idea! Especially for partially discontinued/unobtainable. Bump.

This would be nice, but more importantly, we need to be able to see WHY an achievement has a buggy/discontinued/unobtainable flag. Far too many times have I seen an achievement flagged with one of these (particularly buggy) and not been able to figure out why. That information should be available right there on the game page.

Always end up having to search through the game’s forum or that particular achievement’s solutions/comments. The only game I can think of that does this currently is Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox 360). This would be very useful if they did this for more games with those achievement flags.

This has been in the works for a while; we plan to have achievement PIBs. It will briefly say why an achievement is flagged as such.
