I created a GitHub account, forked to TravelMapping, and moved and dropped my .list file into the window. Will that work? I'm totally lost with this stuff.

Your first user list file submission should be done by sending an email to travmap@teresco.org.
Your user will be added with the next site update and your user list file will be published on GitHub.

Well, you directly tried to add your file. Should be fine.

1. Sign up on https://github.com and create your own GITHUB user
2. Go to https://github.com/TravelMapping/UserData
3. Press on "Fork"
4. Click on your GitHub user name icon

Done!

https://github.com/Craziaskowboi/UserData/tree/master/list_files

Now, click on "Upload files", drop your file into the window and:

8. Select "Commit directly to the master branch" on the bottom of the page
9. Press "Commit changes"
10. Go to https://github.com/<yourGITHUBusername>/UserData (link on top of the page)
11. Press "New pull request"
12. Check your changes indicated in green and red
13. Press "Create pull request"
14. Press "Create pull request" again

Your pull request will be merged by an admin before the next site update.

To undo your changes, press "Close pull request"

OK, so how do I visualize all the stuff I entered on a map?

You’ll see it after the next update assuming there were no problems with the pull request.  The updates usually run daily in the evening.

I don't see a pull request yet.  If GitHub gives you trouble, you're welcome to email me the file and I'll put it in.  I'd estimate about 2/3 of our users steer entirely clear of GitHub.

In any case, expect a site update between 9 and 11 PM Eastern most nights.
