Thanks! I needed some help on what it is I should be doing.
This will certainly prevent noobs from asking the same questions each time they arrive, and even if they do, they can be directed to this thread. Maybe this could be pinned?
Nice write-up! It would be njce if someone can pin this post down, otherwise it might get buried after a few months.
Sometime threads just unpin for some reason. I know I've had to repin other threads before.
Someone's probably drunk scrolling since this is unpinned again. It'll probably be helpful for the new newb (assuming they can read and actually gets through the recommended reading material I linked).
Edit: It won't help the newb now, but others may still benefit from this thread.
Yeah, that's pretty much all that 99% of newbies ask (even though they can read articles, or previous newbies questions/answers). This is a nice summary.
Pinned this again, for some reason things get unpinned randomly at times.
