the "Discussion" tab at the very top, left of the page should normally allow any
user to input something there. If it does prompt you to create an account,
follow indications and normally your new account at the end should immediately
be able to add content to the Discussion page, just use the add signature button
at the end to more easily keep readable exchanges. Note that you may not be able
to post URL at first... But at some point if you do contribute, an admin will
indeed remove some of these limitations.

Your clue to the build as non privileged user will be very valuable. thanks.

About vim learning curve, it should just be ignored if you  can consider vim as
a viewer. Its default"NORMAL" mode is well suited to not modify a scene, and
Most of all its POV syntax highlight is AWESOME for a phone and even outside
Termux. Having Vim Touch also installed gives more flexibility for quick look to
a scene without launching the whole termux Panzer division.
