I am a specialist in templates but my templates never get played. There used to be a sporecast called Cities and Colonies of Spore that advertised templates but the player who made it (Treverbyn) left spore. Does anyone know another way to advertise templates?

Does it surprise you that templates never get played? They're really designed to be seen and built on in the editor, after all.

UltimateZob has a sporecast called "Ultimate Templates (I think that's how it's called )". Asking him won't work but if you do the old "Comment and you comment back" trick and let him see your templates as your most recent creation. He should be able to get it into the sporecast if your really good at it.
EDIT: Oh sorry. You were talking about Adventure templates. I can't help you there. :/

Yeah templates aren't really meant to be played. They are used as a starting point for other players if they are stuck for inspiration.
If it was an "explore" adventure however, it could atttract more views.

This is in the wrong section.
But also, like the others said, templates aren't meant to be played. Therefore, you can't accurately know how many people are actually using your template. They're meant to be made into adventures by other creators.
