in thread RFC - shortform posting guidance for newcomers

I will mention the effectiveness tutorials at the end of my reply, if I'm answering the question in full and/or providing a solution.

I try to refrain from replies consisting entirely of links to the effectiveness tutorials until after the question receives ~6 replies, or at least one that answers the question completely.

Sometimes I'll omit mentioning the effectiveness tutorials if the OP is very new, and it appears it would be just another thing to overwhelm -- but usually by next week, if the OP wasn't scared annoyed away, another opportunity will present itself :)

I think that works.
