A quick question: how do we upload images to tricki?

You can find that information on Help >> formatting page.

Hi, after your message I looked again in the help page and did find the upload instructions directly on the front page of the help section help. Thank you!

If people find it more helpful, this info could be put in the formatting help page right where the [image] directive is explained. Another related thought: when the [image] directive is inserted in an article with an image that isn't yet on tricki, currently tricki displays a broken image symbol indicating the file is not uploaded yet. Perhaps the user could also be given a short message how s/he can do the upload. Or as in mediawiki, a link can appear where the image should be to an interface where the image can be uploaded.
