Some of you have had some confusion over how to upload patterns to the site. Here is how:
1) Using the upload form under Kandi Patterns > Donate/Upload Kandi Patterns. This form lets you upload a pattern image that you have on your computer.
You upload directly through the kandi pattern maker. When you save your pattern for the first time, you have the option to set it to Public or Private. Public is what will let your pattern be published onto the site. You can also modify the privacy of your pattern later on by going to File > Edit Details.
Setting the pattern to public doesn't immediately publish it everywhere on the site. Setting it to public just sends the pattern to the voting queue. If the majority of voters vote to approve it, it will be approved. Keep in mind that it can take several days for a decision to be made, and only a small percentage of patterns are approved.
I hope that clears it up.
