If that area were only enhabited by newbies then who would teach you the rules (written or otherwise). Speaking as a newbie (I have only been here a few months). The Monastery is inclusionist. As long as you dont try to upset people you wont. Dont worry about being a newbie get stuck in. You will soon be guided back to the path if you stray into areas that are likely to offend.

PS. OK Advice newbie to newbie

  • Remember code tags if you post code nuffin will get more -- votes.
  • Remember to try, if you want to ask a question cool but have a bash first. If you do this then however dumb the question no-one will care.
  • Try to make your questions as precise as possible, for you own benifit. The answers are likely to be more appropriate.
  • MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL. The Monastry is a comunity you get out what you put it. I have learnt much more investigating other peoples questions than asking my own. Get stuck in and join the comunity.

    I think it's likely that senior monks would often stop by and give a few pointers. At least they'd be prepared for the flood of "How do I get the length of an array|How do I read from a file|etc." questions rather than having them sprung on them. I sense that's part of the reason for the irritation that is sometimes let out in SOPW. You open a thread, expecting some really tricky problem and get "How can I order the keys in a hash?"
