( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
When I first started using computers I got on bulletin boards.
There was one bulletin board that was modified so that new users could
only access certain areas. This allowed me access to a test message group
and to use the download area for downloading help files. This helped me from being red-faced.
Other boards I went to before didn't offer this.
So being new to computers and to bulletin boards I made LOTS of mistakes until I got on that one board.

It was very helpful. Maybe this might not be a bad idea for perlmonks.
I know that for the first three days here I read the docs specific to this site.
Thank goodness it's offered not to mention visible as soon as you get to the site.
That was very helpful and even though I still made some mistakes I didn't make huge blunders.

I am looking right now at something that says Writeup Formatting Tips a quick read that was very helpful.

Okay my point. Although I took some time when I just began to look at posts
and see what was already being posted before I began.
Others may not. A introductory period isn't a bad idea but something helpful should be offered.
I just didn't want that forgotten.
An intoductory period without something constructive could be worse in the long-run regarding reputation.

    [choroba]: My week was hectic as well, and so will be the next several ones...
    [Corion]: Sane Dots Supplies - your brand manufacturer for satisfying experiences!
    [choroba]: preparing the trip to Vietnam + buying a new car = enough fun
    [Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's a lot of "fun" for one week...
    [Corion]: I guess I should stage some product photos for Sane Dots Supplies ;)
    [marto]: I had some ideas about that Corion
    [marto]: I'll send a message over the weekend maybe :P
    [Corion]: choroba: I avoided the "fun" of emergency shopping for a new flat iron by trying the flat iron without the timer that sat between it and the mains power. Seems as if just the timer is broken.
    [Corion]: marto: Heh, would be cool!
