I've been an active participant on TMC for 6 years and manage to use the forum because I have the ability to force round pegs into square holes when needed. But a couple of days ago a friend bought an MS and I attempted to instruct them on the ways of TMC and realized how little I knew. Is there some instruction manual for how the site is used? Not etiquette but procedures. For example, there seems to be some limitations imposed on new members of TMC but I can't find where they are discussed. The only topic that seems fully discussed is on Reputation Points which to the newbie just adds to the confusion.
