Finding One's Own Game Ads
I was going to post to Wanted - Players an advertisement for a game I run, but when I was editing the post, saw a drop-down to "select one of your NN advertising games" (where NN is given as a number).

I was somewhat surprised to see the game I was about to advertise for in that list, since I thought I had not yet created an ad for it.  I dogged off creating the ad at that point, since rules for that forum state one should only post a single ad topic per game (see rule 5 in the Required Reading).

Is there a simple way to locate one's own game ads in Wanted - Players?

Use the search link at the bottom, you can search by poster.

{Facepalm}  Thanks, Hunter!  I should have spotted that.  Works as (ahem) advertised.

Finding One's Own Game Ads
I've used this site for over fifteen years, and I didn't know that search button was in the lower left until bigbadron pointed it out to me earlier this year.

for me?.. I bump  my adds  every week ( can enevr have  enough active players!)..any way.. when I reset my computer, I  just go to 'Players wanted"..and  check the pages until I finmd my game.

By best  way ..I have a Link for each game in ma Favs.... I just click on  reportys.. edit as I need and  BONG.. new post...I also   delete older post every so often to keep the posts  at 20-25...They all say the same thing, except   in times  I edit.


 easy to find  either way though!

I make a shortcut to them when I set one up, so I never lose it.

I'm doing that, too, now.  It took me forever to find my older games, though.  That search tool could have saved me an ocean of time if I'd spotted it earlier.

I build links to my game ads in their scratch pads.
