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.
