Can't submit art work.

Asked by Gozzin

 I have came up with a Jaunty wallpaper design...I've spent the last three days trying to figure out how to submit it to you...I've re read the directions,downloaded the software from Synaptic and am totally baffled.
 I thought it was just me,and sent several other people to your submission art pages and they found it just as confusing.
 Like this:
"To subscribe to a wiki page, simply click the subscribe button at the top of the related wiki page. "
"The" page? No links are provided to the page I want,which is Jaunty. I can look at people's art work but that's all. A subscribe button? Not finding one,and I looked.

      There are two tools located at Wiki Scripts to help you with this
      Use attachment:thumbnail.png and [attachment:file.png linkname]

Use @SIG@ to leave your signature at the end of your comment. New comments should be placed at the bottom of the feedback. "

To a newbie,the above makes no sense. This is not self explanatory.
How can I give feedback? I have no idea how to give it,or where to give it.No idea where to get said tools (am guessing these are what I downloaded in Synaptic.),no explanation as to how to use said tools.

"To add a page to this category, add a link to this page on the last line of the page."

Which category is "this" category? Jaunty?

Add a link? What kind af link? A link to the art work I can't submit cause i don't understand your directions?
 Last line of "the" page? Which page is "the page?" I see no last line to submit at.

There was one place I could put in some code that said :Jackalope incoming"..I did this three times,nothing happened. I have no clue if this is what I should be doing...I may have screwed something up,but I'd never know,as there is no feedback on my actions at all.
 Should my artwork have gone there? I don't know.Should I have put "Jacklope Incoming" in first than a link to my art work?
 I have no idea.

See the problem? I sure hope so. I'm not stupid,I have a college degree,but you make this so confusing and vague it's astounding...
This is the first place I've seen where I can get help.
I'd sure appreciate some help at this point cause I'm a lost ball in high weeds here.

What should happen is a simple and user friendly process by way a person who wants to can submit art work and have it seen and maybe used.
 What you have provided is not user friendly and is difficult to understand,,and that's an understatement.

Have a look at this video,

Then read the overview section on this page,

That should get you started using a wiki and introduce you to the required concepts.

Then you can add or edit a page at

If you are still confused go back to the site and have a play in the "sandbox" until you have a better feel for how it works.

How are you going with this, Gozzin? I think the problems you are having are more to do with the Wiki software than anything else. Have the above links helped?
