    It's basically a search string based on started threads in a particular forum. If you hover your mouse over the appropriate subforum link on the main forum page - (forum.cartographersguild.com not the main entry page cartographersguild.com) - it will tell you the forum number in the lower left (Firefox) so that you can change the search to whatever you like. You also need your ID number so hover your mouse over your name and look in the lower left of the screen.

    The link looks like this - the site upgrade won't let me post the whole thing without screwing it up so make sure to add the http:// and for some reason it keeps putting a space in forumchoice (apparently it always puts a random space somewhere in a long string as you can see in my underscore line - I wonder why it does that) so take that out.

    forum.cartographersguild.com/search.php?do=finduser&u=2345&starteronly=1&forumc hoice[]=36&contenttype=vBForum_Post

    This is your ID number_____________________________^______________ _______________^
    This is the forum number____________________________________________ _____________/

    Finished Maps is 36, Tutorials is 48, and Challenge Archives is 59

    By using the search string for challenge maps I can avoid filling up the Finished Maps section with my old challenge maps...sure it finds all threads started by me and that will include actual challenges and polls and whatnot but c'est la vie.

    "http://www.cartographersguild.com/search.php?do=finduser&u=2345&starteronly=1&forumc hoice[]=36&contenttype=vBForum_Post"

    Hmm, no matter what it keeps putting a space between the c and h in &forumchoice[]...how weird. Of course now it doesn't do it...forumchoiceforumchoiceforumchoice...damn thing. At any rate, just hover your mouse over My Maps there and it will show the link in Firefox in the lower left or right click it and choose properties.

    You need to use the URLencoded square brackets, so forumchoice%5B%5D=36 instead of forumchoice[]=36 in the link.

    I was able to add a link for my Challenge Maps, so I don't need to move them to the Finished Maps forum (unless I want to ).

    I thought about it for a bit, and figured I would move the challenge maps into the finished maps.. that way I get the opportunity to put the completed map as the first post instead of people needing to scroll/page through the thread to find the finished piece.

    If that's a faux pas, let me know and i'll happily use a challenge link instead.

    I think of it less as being lazy, and more along the lines of "efficient" lol

    Incidentally, while browsing through the forum, I found the original stckypost to explain the finished maps link:
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...ed-map-threads

    Perhaps it should be updated with the new addition at the end of the URL?
