In order to manage your ads you must click "My EE Listings" from either below the small advertising banners or from the Forum Tools tab.
Once you do that you will see a screen similar to this:
This screen will list all of your current ads. If you have a free membership it should only show the most current five ads.
You can manage individual ads from here. You can bump ads (cannot be bumped before 72 hours from creation of ad or last bump), and mark ads closed or sold.
If you accidently mark an ad closed or sold and it is still an active ad, please contact an EE moderator and we can reopen the ad for you.
If your ad will not bump please contact an EE moderator. The ad may not be eligible to bump due to time, may still be on page one, or may simply need a nudge from us. We will assist and advise.
If your ad goes into archive, it is gone. You will need to recreate the ad. Currently, the archive period is 30 days.
Do not open, close and reopen an ad simply to keep it on page one before the 72 hour time frame or bypass the limits of the five ad management for free accounts (Rule 16). Your EE access will be terminated if you do so.
