I've been able to find the answers to just about all of my newbie questions with a little searching. Then again, I'm not new to the forum world.
Maybe a 'welcome guide' PM to new users explaining the best ways to search for things and a few hints here and there ("When asking an important question, don't title your post 'help', be more specific: 'There are caterpillars in my beer. Is this bad?').
Dunno if there's a way to do an automatic PM upon account creation, but it might be helpful.
