I feel really dense here but literally for years I haven't been able to figure out how to add more listings! I can't even figure out how I added the ones I've got now. I'm finally organizing all my systems & games and would like to put them all up at last. How do I do it??

search for the game (box in navigation bar), use the "Add" button from the results.
If you don't find a game, you can use the "Add Unlisted Game" button (on left side of search results) to get a blank form where you can add anything you want.

AHA!!! THANK YOU!!! This is been driving me crazy for so long, I kept trying to find where you just enter all your games, didn't realize you have to search for each one separately first, it's been so long.

Thanks again!

You can get a form to just add things in a freeform manner (on the My Items page), but it's better to do them with the search method. Doing it that way ensures you use the same spelling/punctuation as everyone else, so that you will get matches with others looking for the same titles.

I agree... though I can't even find any "My Items" page. Where would that be? I can find My Listing but see no way to add to it.

Gren is talking about the Old Layout. The "Add Unlisted" button is the new layout way (basically brings you to the same blank new item form).

OK where is "Add Unlisted"? I still can't find it. Frankly I don't think I'll ever do it that way as adding them "the right way" is obviously much better for everyone, but now I wanna know! LOL

You have to do a search first, then it will be on the left side of results (new layout).

OHHHH ok. So in other words there is in fact no place to simply get a blank form to fill out. That's what I had thought... thanks for clarifying!

There is a way to do it with the old layout. The functionality of the old layout is why I never made the switch to the new one.

In post #8 I explained where the place is in the new layout. So, there is in fact a place to simply get a blank form (the "Add Unlisted Game" button on left side of search results).

You just have to do a search first.

The point is that we want to encourage people to try to look for items and use the names we already have vs. making up a new name for their stuff. Otherwise, the same item can have multiple names and it's a mess.

So, even with the old layout, it's best to search first. The blank forms should be a last resort.

Got it. Tomato tomato. ;) Bottom line is I now know how to add a listing and ensure I give it the name most used on the site. Thanks!

OK so, what about a game that isn't listed? For example Superhot or Raw Data for PS4?

Use that form you get when you click "add unlisted", right? You can fill in anything you want. It's how new stuff gets added... someone has to make the first listing.

OK this is why I feel so dense... WHAT form? WHAT "add unlisted"? I don't see that anywhere. I search for a game, it's not found, and that's that. There is no form, no way to add anything, no nothing. so... ??????

In post #11 I gave the link to the page you get when you click the "Add Unlisted Game" button.

I feel like you're not reading what I post or something.

Ahh crap, ok now I see it. I kept looking under the "Add" dropdown! Was driving me nuts... thanks for clearly pointing it out.
