Did I Season My de Buyer Carbon Steel Wok Pan Properly?

Here's what I did per the instructions:

I rinsed it in hot water.

I boiled potato skins for five minutes.

Threw them away, heated oil high in Omega-3 (Smart Balance I believe) for five minutes.

Threw it away, wiped it with a towel.

This photo is what I got after doing the potatoes. This came before the oil. I haven't seen anything indicating that this is right.

In case you've seen me elsewhere, yes, I have a thread for whether or not I ruined my Le Creuset and Staub pans as well. I'm an intelligent person, but I literally feel like this pan mess is Rocket Science. It's getting very frustrating to work out and I am about to give up and go to Target for a cheap pan every month.
