Live QnA refugee. What should a new user on here know?

Asked by ArtiqueFox (974 points ) February 14th, 2010

What should a new user know? I know every QnA site has a different culture, and I would like some tips on this site’s. Any advice for a newbie?

2. Look around for a while.

3. Study the Fluther Guidelines.

Don’t take anything the mods do personally. It really is never personal. And don’t forget that “Mazel Tov™” belongs to me, and not @janbb. She is a mere pretendress to the throne.

@dpworkin How about a 10 pack of them? Or I can just stick with “sastipe” (“good health”)..

You should know you are welcome here. I’m a rather recent refugee from another Social Q&A site myself. It took me a short time to adjust to the more aggressive moderation here. Flame wars aren’t allowed to go on and on. Silly or frivolous questions are moved to chatroom discussions, and not allowed to clutter the main discussion area. Any question that might contain or be answered by sexual content or content that would look bad if read on a work computer should be prefaced by (NSFW) meaning Not Safe For Work.
