Nice topic. I think this will be very helpful for keeping “I’m new, what do I do?” topics from clogging up the forum

Could you link @tankt2016’s New User Guide? Or do you think this topic covers all of that and could fully replace it? Currently, tankt’s guide is informative and is my go to link, so I think it’d be nice to include it because it is a very similar concept to this topic

This is cool! Even though I’ve been on for a while, it’s still cool to go through. Also, recommendation: if it’s possible to pin this topic to the categories section at the top of all the categories or smth, that would help many new users as it would be easy to find and access.

We already have tons of pinned topics…in the future we may have an automatic message send new users to this topic. Thanks for the suggestion though!

That’s a good idea. Also, the auto message from Lisa that you get after being put up to basic trust, perhaps you could edit that and add a link to this topic?

I would have to discuss it with Ana. I am very tired right now, though, and the construction of this topic has been put on halt because my post was put in pending
