What's up! I just finished my first guitar wiki article and it's on Eddie Van Halen. I just submitted it with no pictures because I asked how to in the wiki writers rank section but no one answered. So I figured it was fairly lengthy and everything else checked out so I submitted it.

Then, I realized that I could start a topic to ask that and a few other questions;
1. How do you submit pics? (I tried reading the directions, but I don't have a clue what they mean, I'm very technologically impaired)
2. Is it OK that I submitted my first article without the other 4 I will need to eventually become a wiki writer?
3. Can I submit more than 1 pic?
4. Is there a minimum length limit for articles? (Obviously 1 sentence won't work but you understand).

If anyone can answer any of these questions tell me. Rock On GMC!

to insert images you need to upload them from your computer, at the bottom i think there's a link that says "Upload", try that and upload a picture, you'll get it's Wiki URL, then use that URL in your article with the Attach Image tool

Hey there - glad to see you wikiing away smile.gif

Submit your articles one by one - that is fine ! Just PM me with a list of all of them when you have 5 and want your Wiki:ers badge smile.gif

How much to write - its up to you of course. One sentence won't work. 10000 words is too boring, somewhere in between there is a happy medium, I'll let you be the judge of that, but check out similar articlaes as a guide.
