    It can be a little confusing when first starting out posting on TOSC. Yes, there's a handy FAQ section, but an abbreviated list or flowchart-style guide might be handier for a newbie to look at. For ex.,
    STEP 1) Introduce yourself in the Introductions section
    STEP 2) Responding to a thread--link to FAQ
    STEP 3) Starting a thread, rather than just referring to the FAQ, encourage the person to look at the categories under Lifestyles or whatever and ask themselves "Does my topic fit one of these categories? If so, good, just post there. If not, feel free to start a new thread....."
    It might help control the number of threads and help keep people more on-topic which would help us be a better resource. Sure, we'll still go off-topic as conversations do, but that's another subject.....editing, etc.
