    How to use Github Gist:
    Some of you might have used copy/paste tools like Pastebin before, but in case you haven't, this is an introduction on how to use Github Gist. It is a similar c/p tool, but has no character limit and is just as easy to use as Pastebin. Using Gist/Pastebin is recommended if you have issues with client crashes since it keeps the formatting of the log and makes it easier to read the file without having to download it. Make sure to paste your crashlog there before reporting it on the forum.

    • Use this link.
    • Give the Gist a title in the small "Filename" window above the large text window.
    • Open the File you want to share.
    • Use Ctrl+A to select the whole text and Ctrl+C to copy it
    • Go on the Gist Page and use Ctrl+V to paste it
    • Click on "Create (secret) Gist". The file you have may not be that important, but there's no need to share it with the entire world ;)
    • Copy the link of the website and paste it anywhere you need it.
