I'm not sure how to upload my personal image.

When I go there It says that the upload feature can only be used by Autoconfirmed users, which is linked to a blank page, bots, Also linked to a blank page, and Syops. Waferman 22:47, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
A) Use Special:Upload instead (they go to the same place, but the one above has the hostname in it which is potentially problematic). Better yet, the link to it is in the "Toolbox", over there on the right, under the search box.
2) According to the FAQ, before brand new users are allowed to upload images they must be "autoconfirmed". I don't know what that means, but I imagine we've got an elite team of wiki-commandoes stationed in a bunker someplace in Wyoming that are busily performing the necessary background checks on you, your immediate family... all of your close friends... anyone you've ever dated... (and all their pets). You know — the usual normal protections. Apparently it takes about 24-48 hours, so try again tomorrow I guess.  Green Helmet 23:09, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Using Show Preview

Hello Waferman, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded.
