Updated instructions on creating a community post.

When logged into the community (you can do that here) you'll no longer see a pencil icon next to your profile. We've now replaced this with a drop-down menu called 'Contribute':

Goodbye pencil. Hello contribute

Clicking on 'Contribute' displays a list of content options:   

Content options

Select 'Create a post' followed by 'New post' to begin creating a new blog, such as a Behind the Paper post. 

That's it. Everything else remains the same. And remember, you can always preview a draft of your post before hitting publish.   

Let us know if you have any questions!

Hi Alireza, 
Your profile required an update.  You should now be able to see the option to 'Contribute', when you log in.
