I'm a alumnus University of Pittsburgh (2011-2015) having studied Japanese, Anthropology, and Latin and also a study abroad alumnus of Nanzan University (2013-2014). My interest in kimono began in the summer of 2010. I do programming at Japanese anime and culture conventions to introduce people to kimono as well as present on kimono and do demos for the University of Pittsburgh and the Japan America Society of Pennsylvania. I study and wear both men's and women's kimono. I have a strong interest in Classical Japanese and enjoy the poetry of Ono no Komachi.

How to post pictures <see code>

Uploading: 1) Look for "Upload File" towards the bottom of the home/main page. 2) Browse for the image(s) on your computer. 3) If you want to make it easier for yourself to find, you can change what the image file name is via the "Destination Filename" field. 4) Pop in your descriptions, if any. 5) Hit "Upload File" and pray no online gremlins get to it before it's done being stored on the servers tongue emoticon

Adding/embedding images to a page: 1) Navigate to "File List" - either via the "Upload File" page where you uploaded your stuff (it'll be described in the introduction of that page), or via "Special Pages" on the bottom of the home/main page. 2) Look for the image you wish to embed - use the search tool if needed (it DOES help to have a good file name you can remember!) 3) Make a note of the file name. So like, Motif_ryu_02.jpg or Kimono_komon_11.jpg. 4) Navigate to the wiki page you're looking to edit and find the relevant section of said page. 5) Click the "edit" link on that section. 6) For a single image, insert this code - caption - where you want the image displayed. "options" are where you specify stuff like image formatting (size, border or not, etc); caption is for, well, captions. This one would take up too long to explain so have a look at the Mediawiki Images help page (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Images) 7) Alternatively we've got the Example galleries as well at the end of most wiki pages; code is below.

(You'll see them in most pages anyway when you edit them.)

Save after every edit - because Jesus does, and Moses invests.
