Opening ECP Pull Request
Officially putting in the ECP for discussion and voting

Introduction

As this point in the ECP process, you should have a fully formed ECP written out as shown in the ECP Style Guide section.
An ECP can only be brought forward as previously announced and seconded in a weekly Etho Protocol Council Meeting. Two Etho Protocol Council Members need to support the ECP in order to reach this stage.

Opening First ECP Pull Request

Forking Etho Protocol ECP Repository

Fork the Etho Protocol Github ECP repo here: https://github.com/Ether1Project/ECPs
By forking the Etho Protocol ECP repo, you provide another copy of the data therein. Even better if you always keep a local copy of your ECP repo using the Github desktop client. #DecentralizeEverything

Fork the ECP repo

Upload Properly Formatted ECP markdown file

Once you've forked the repo, you will upload your markdown formatted ECP file and input the summary of the ECP file into the body of the pull request.
Navigate to the front page of the newly forked ECP repo (in our case here it'll be located on the ether1cloud account). In your case, this will be on your own individual account.

Navigate to the /site/content/post subdirectory by clicking on the respective folder name within each level

If unsure about the formatting of an ECP, reference the ecp8.md and ecp9.md files
Here's what a well formatted ecpXXX.md file will look like:
Using the Github interface you can either create a new file and paste your work into it or upload the ecpXXX.md file right into the post directory
