Your participation is important, so make sure you add your voice to ESR! We've tried to make creating content as easy as possible. Here's some common things to know when creating any type of content:
With the exception of the short status updates (which are created from that big box that's under the main navigation icons), your first step in creating anything new is the big green "create" button at the top left of the site. It's always there. Just hover over the button and it'll drop down a list of all the actions you can take, such as "write a post". Move down to what you want to do and click, you should now see the main column change to show the create form.
When you're creating content, the sidebar on the right side of the site changes to allow you to insert media directly. You can do this by either finding something you've previously added (my media), finding something someone else has added (all media) or you can upload / add a new photo or video.
The other way to add to what you're creating is using something from My Garage. Any of the content you've collected there can be inserted into something new, no matter what the type of content is or who created it originally. All you have to do is roll over My Garage, find what you want to use, then hit the insert button and it will be embedded into your new post at the cursor. More on My Garage:
If you see a red box with a white X in the middle of it in one of the fields you're filling out, you've entered characters that we don't allow or you've missed something that's required. If you see a green box with a white check mark, you're all good to go!
You'll notice that there's a spot for Tags at the end of each create page. The Tags aren't required, but they are really useful to help you and other users find what you're looking for so please add them as often as you can. As you enter a tag, if there are similar ones already entered a list of suggestions will show up and you can just click on one of them to add it. To add multiple tags, separate them with commas.
Once you create something and have hit the finish button to post it, you cannot go back to edit it.
