Uploading Files

  1. Click "Upload file" under the Toolbox heading on the left sidebar. (Or click here.)
  2. Choose a filename and write a description of what you're uploading in the summary box.
  3. Choose an appropriate tag that describes what platform the file is for, and include it in the description box.

Tagging Files

Files must be tagged with their system and type. Put this information into the Summary box on the Upload File page (or, if a file has already been uploaded without the necessary information, click "edit" at the top of the file's page). Tagging a file will place it into a category.
