The situation is that I had posted a BIN bid to an auction, but can't remember which one it was. I'm have a real hard time tracking it down. While I can easily find my forum posts, I can't seem to do the same for any of my auction results.

Help anyone?

You can also replace your username at the end of the URL with anyone else's username to see what they've posted. It's an RSS feed, so if it doesn't look like it contains the latest posts, sometimes you have to refresh the page a couple of times to prompt it to update.

You can also check out the "contributions" tab in your profile.

Worked perfectly. The same game came through another auction with very similar parameters. Thought perhaps the bid didn't go through. Thanks.

Except that some forum posts never show up in the contributions. For whatever reason, I can post to subdomains and pinned news articles and they often are not in my "Site Forum" responses anywhere on the contributions page.

At the bottom of the top section of Contributions, "Threads and Replies", are the listings for "Board Game Subdomain"; below that is the "Site Forums" section. I suspect your missing responses are in one of those sections.

My subdomain forum posts are usually there (though you'd think they ought to be in the "site forum replies") however, when I reply to something in the BGG News, I never see it anywhere.

I guess I'd call that a bug then. A Google search might get you there. I suggest googling:
"BGG News" "Randy Cox" site:boardgamegeek.com/thread/

Are you sure? I just checked mine, and anything I reply to in BGG News shows up in my site forums replies.

I think this is a bug (not sure if has been reported yet). Threads and replies to the geekdo news forum do not show in your profile contributions, although they do show in your RSS feed.

Additionally, the geekdo news forum is not browsable via the Forums menu. You can pretty much only get to it if you already have it bookmarked, or have a subscription to it or something in it. This is even the case if you are on www.geekdo.com rather than www.boardgamegeek.com

This can sometimes make finding old news threads tricky.
