What is the first thing you should do when you're new to a website? Let's say your friend invited you to register a website but you're unfamiliar with it. As you've already registered that site, you're pissed off because your friend couldn't reach when you needed to ask something. Most of the time, what you would do was just left the site as you don't know how to use it.
I think one of the first things you should find and read in the website is its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page. Here you will know what is the website all about and will guide you on how to properly use it. You also will know the do's and don'ts when using the website. Just spend a few minutes to read and I'm sure it's very helpful specially to new users.
When I joined bitLanders, I had no idea what this website was all about. It very tricky at first on how to write a post and I'm lost browsing the page. I knew that it would take more time to learn this site. What I did was search on Google its FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) as I couldn't find it in this page. Alas! I found it.
