1-      I’ll show you how to upload a pattern on the crochet forum. Before doing it, there are some rules about writing the title correctly that you may learn:


Topic titles format:

•  
Company name- Designer name - Pattern name
Ex.:  A morning Cup of Jo Creations- Josephine Wu – Baby Panda


•  For patterns which has a number
Company name - Pattern number- Pattern name
Ex.: Red Heart Yarn – WT1741- Cutest Little Owl


•  For magazines, Pamphlets or Booklets
Magazine name- Issue Name- Issue Date
Designer Name- Booklet Number or Pattern number- Book or Pattern Name
Exs.: Magic of Crochet – Issue 29
          Love of Crochet- Fall 2013
          Leisure Arts – 2749 – Corner Bookmarks to crochet


Please, respect the word order stated above.



2-      The crochet forum has been slip into two forums:



3-      I’ll show you how to upload a crochet pattern. The first thing you need to do is to search for the pattern you will upload to see if it’s already on the forum. I would  like to upload “Amigurumi Cadillac Sofa by AmiEggs”. I’ll search for the following keywords: amigurumi cadillac sofa, Cadillac sofa and Emieggs






4-      However, if I search for “Cadillac sofa”, see what will happen:



5-      The pattern I would like to post has already been posted by someone. So, I need to choose a pattern that nobody has posted yet!

If you find a duplicate thread, please report it using the report button on the pattern page.  Please, include a link to where the original pattern was shared. Your reports are greatly appreciated!



6- I have a pattern called “Ela Amigurumi girl pattern by Studio Karma Pattern”. I’ll search  for it to see whether it’s already on the forum or not.
When I type the keyword “Ela” there is 1000 threads related to it.



They are too many for me to see so I will use the advanced search to search in specific forums ( CrochetPatterns, Crochet Magazines / Books)






By using the Advanced search feature, there will be less results related to the keyword I chose. After changing the keyword to “amigurumi girl pattern”, “girl pattern”, “Ela amigurumi girl pattern” and “Studio Karma Pattern” I saw that nobody has posted this pattern on the forum yet so I will do it now.

7-      To post this pattern I need to go to the crochet patterns forum. Click on “new” then “thread”.



According to the crochet rules for Titles format (Company - designer name – Pattern name), as this pattern doesn’t have any numbers, the right way of writing the title would be:  “Studio Karma Patterns – Cihan Sahin– Ela amigurumi girl pattern”. The designer’s name isn’t on this pattern so I searched for it on the Internet. Please, do not write the words together (like this: Karmapatterns – CihanSahin) or in capital letters ( like this: KARMAPATTERNS – CIHAN SAHIN) because it may cause problems in the search.



Note1:About the kind of pattern I’m uploading, there is only one option for me to choose. It is on “Toys and Hobbies= softies”. A lot of people have also been choosing “Pet= toy”.


If I want to post a piece of clothing for a dog, I would fill out the category “Pet = clothing”





As the same way, if I would like to post a Crochet bone (this is a toy for the dog), I would fill out the category “Pet = toy” because that’s the toy for an animal!
It is a good idea to be familiar with the options in English. For instance, a “puppet” is not the same as “softies”.

Puppet =  A movable model of a person or animal that is typically moved either by strings controlled from above or by a hand inside it.

Note2: This is about Yarn Weight:










Then choose the file on your computer and wait a while until the upload finishes.




This pattern is not free but I just want 5 coins for it.
If you want to change the “Read permission”, do it before clicking on “Ok”. The maximum Read permission allowed is “level 2 = 30”.
























After you post a pattern, it will be checked out by the moderator. It will be approved soon!

Hi, i'm a new memeber and i wish to know if there's a limit of pattern uploads per day or week. also ...

No, there isn't a limit of uploads per day.

The free patterns are the ones we find on the Internet for free. The maximum price for free patterns is 10 coins. When the pattern isn't free, you can charge whatever you want.

As you're a new member, I suggest you to take a look at this tutorial so you can understand how things work: http://www.pindiy.com/thread-282074-1-1.html

Ok, My issue that has come around is that my attached .pdf was an 'open file'.  What the heck is an open file.  I have the pattern here, scanned it into my computer in .pdf form, then attached it and listed the coin cost I was asking when someone wants to download it.

an open file means you uploaded images instead of a pdf file  Details Reply Post time 2017-7-29 09:11

Wow! lots of steps but it is well written and I figure if nothing else before I upload a pattern I could always come back make some notes and give it a try. I am sure by the way you explained it I shouldn't have a problem. Thank you so much for your help.

thank you for that explanation. One thing - isn't it the minimum read level rather than the maximum read level ie. if you choose lvl 2, only lvl 2 and above can read it?

Why are we only getting 70% of the coins charged for our uploaded patterns instead of 90%? This started a few days ago and I can't get an answer.

Comments

I have been informed that the site owner has raised the transaction tax from %10 to %30 ... it means users get less gold coins when they sale any attachment  Post time 2017-11-27 03:43
