There is a thread here in the Beginners Lounge forum in which those new to the site can introduce themselves to the ASF community. It has become apparent that many beginners often have a question or two that they would like to ask. Most often it is along the lines of "Where do I begin?" but it can also be something very specific.
In the past those with a couple of questions would often start a separate thread here in the Beginner's Lounge, as any questions asked in the introduction thread would often get buried fairly quickly by subsequent introductions.
I have started this thread in an attempt to keep all those questions from beginners in one place. It is my hope that, in time, this thread will become a useful resource as questions from beginners are asked and then answered by more experienced members of the ASF community.
In future, threads started in this forum to ask one or a series of beginner questions will be merged into this thread, so if a thread you started ends up in here that is the reason why.
