Why is it so hard to get a Collection started?

I thought I had made one, but it didn't show up in my profile. I went back, and apparently I only got to the "Draft" stage. When I tried to start it up, it said I had to add 5 Instructables to it - but how do you do it from that page? Is there a tutorial on setting up Collections? This is very frustrating.

ETA: And now I see that there is no option for asking *this* kind of question offered in the categories or Channels boxes below. Well, I can't find a Contact Us button, so this goes here.

Not very user-friendly.

I have to agree it is difficult. I clicked the "+Collection". I gave it a name and said create. The spinny thing spun for almost 30 seconds and then went away. I then clicked the +Add button but it said I had to select a collection first. There was nothing to select from. What seems to be a straight forward feature just doesn't seem to work!

You add projects to a collection from the project - see at the top-right of any project, there'll be a button that says "+Collection".

Click it.

Otherwise, if you are wanting to give feedback on the way the site works, you can always use the Feedback forum:

Hope that helps.

Thanks, I'll try again. It didn't work the first times because the site for some reason didn't accept my Collection creation. Thanks for your comment.
