Help with proclamation images[new][edit source][reply]
Hi Jaunnyluta! I’m Pyrrhus. I hear you’re having some trouble adding some proclamation images to a page. I know how frustrating it is trying to figure out how to do things on MEpedia. If you tell me what you’re trying to do, I might be able to guide you through the process. Cheers!

Hi Phrrhus, I accidentally loaded my proclamations to the "files" page, not understanding this is not where they go. Now I can't load them under "Indiana" I have noted that we have them and they are under files but I can't get back to "files to delete them and load them to the correct location. I have tried changing the names I have given the files in my computer and the system just won't be fooled. Any help figuring out how to get my proclamations out of the "files" section and into the proper location will be greatly appreciated. I now know how to get the proclamations in the correct place but until I get them out of "files" the system won't let me. I have proclamations for the State of Indiana, the City of Indianapolis, and the City of Bloomington. All help is appreciated. Thanks! Jaunny
- Hi Jaunny! You did things correctly by first uploading each image to its own “File:” page. Each image that you want to use in MEpedia must have its own “File:” page. Once you have uploaded each file to its own “File:” page, you can either insert the image into another page, or you can just link to the image from another page. On the proclamations page, people usually link to the image. So there’s no need to delete the image’s “File:” page, you just have to link to the image’s “File:” page from the proclamations page. Jaime should have sent you the instructions for this. Hope this helps!

Hi there[new][edit source][reply]
Thank you for raising this as an issue. I've now improved our documentation to properly explain how to add an image or link to an image, it's in MEpedia:Images. If you need help y anything in the future feel free to ask on my talk page, or if you use Facebook post in the MEpedia editors group on there.

myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.
