Newbies Listen Up!
OK now that I have your attention - I thought I could save you some time wandering around the forum trying to find answers. Unless you like to wander then you can click out now. But I am fairly new here too and have discovered a few things to share. On the left side of the screen you see a quicklinks list and 3rd from the bottom is a link to "Support". In that thread you will see explanations for how to get those cool rivets, what that warning meter thing is and about karma. I just clicked on User CP along the top blue bar and found some nice notes from some nice people on my "latest reputation received". How cool is that! I didn't even know I had a reputation. So go forth and spread good karma and you may get some back. Maybe even from me now that I've learned how. Aloha (insert smiley doing hula).
