I'm new to Puzzling and figured I would get started by posting a puzzle.

I read through the tour, and it says this:

Ask about...

Specific questions about the creation and solving of puzzles

Real problems or questions that you have encountered

Am I allowed to make up my own puzzles for the site?

Meta doesn't have an answer, and the on-topic page doesn't have anything in it.

A lot of puzzles look like they were made up, but I can't tell.

    $\begingroup$ Every puzzle I've posted so far has been made up by me - feel free to ask your own madeup puzzles! $\endgroup$ – Aify Jan 29 '16 at 20:58

    $\begingroup$ Not only can you, but there's a special sandbox for getting feedback on it before you post it! It's like a special QA environment for puzzles :) $\endgroup$ – corsiKa Feb 11 '16 at 21:12

Thanks for asking! The Puzzling site has had some different 'starting' and then grew into it's current, rather special state. It is - like CodeGolf - a somewhat untypical StackExchange site and as result not all of the auxiliary pages (FAQ etc.) are fully representative. There has also been a (turbulent) time of discussion and very different opinions of what this site is about, but in the end, this site became what it is: The perfect site to post your own puzzles to showcase them, test them against possibly the best puzzle-solving-community in the world, and to learn how to make good puzzles. Focus is on quality not quantity, though.
