1 FAQ tagged with n00b
I'm new. What should I do first?
Welcome! You can set up your profile with as much or as little information as you want, then look around the site. You've probably already seen the new user note
, so you know about the waiting period before you can post, and the rule against linking to projects made by you or anyone you know. It's a good idea to spend time reading the site to get a sense of the culture here. Note that things can vary between parts of the site - for example, Metafilter
(or MeFi) and AskMetafilter
(or AskMe) have different guidelines.
On the MetaFilter wiki, there is a helpful Orientation
page for new members. This FAQ has a great deal of information too. If you have a question that is not answered here or in the wiki, you can use the contact form (link in the bottom right corner of every page) to directly ask the moderators/admins.
