Hi I'm new and a bit lost.

Some lovely people helped me add a photo to a post last night, as I was adding the game I had been playing over Christmas to the couples games list.

I added a photo, realised I'd therefore made 2 posts, so deleted the first one and added my original text to the post with the pic of the game. Now I can't find my post and I don't know how to search for it, or search for words within threads to try to find it that way.

Sorry about this. Thanks for your time. I'll get the hang of it, I'm sure!

Go to your profile, select the contributions tab, and look for it on the right. Good luck.

I'm sure you'll be able to find it, but I got curious about your post and looked myself. Might as well share the link: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/items/user/Stillflying200...

If you go to /subscriptions/prefs you can adjust your preferences so you'll get notified whenever someone responds to one of your posts. Left column, Special Subscriptions Replies to my content* and make sure everything is ticked Yes. The subscriptions will show in the upper left corner, next to the newspaper.

If you subscribe to your own post you can also locate it as "manage subscriptions" in "subscriptions" even if no responses. A quick look tells me I have 3 such still tracked at the moment.

You can also add the link to your thread/forum replies to the Quickbar on top - right next to the logout button. Its very convenient and you can avoid going to your profile and then to contribution, albeit sometimes it's necessary.

I kind of feel like the following information should be shown on the web page that shows you have completed creating an account:

Hopefully helpful links (some of these will cross-reference):
Five Common Misconceptions about BGG + New User advice
Tricks of the Geek
More Tricks of the Geek
unofficial FAQ
New Users want to know Who? What? Where? When? and Why? but mostly How?
My 1st Year on BGG - Tips, Tricks, and Great Geeklists

Not as useful, but maybe also:

Conceptually I agree, but that's too much info for a new user to take in.

Page 1 of a new user's Quickbar could be preloaded with these links. Just thinking out loud.
