Welcome to CC. We are happy to answer particular questions. It is a good idea for you to wander around in the site to familiarize yourself with the parts of the site (galleries, recipes, tutorials, etc.), read some forums to see how people post (play nice, disagreements are okay but don't attack someone, try to use readable English rthr thn txt spk). :-)
Use the Search box at the top of the page to see what information is already here. Settle in and "digest" the culture of the site so you feel at home.

There is a thread on here with everyone's favorite tips. Keep them written down if you think you'll forget. I have a Word document with almost 90 of them. haha.
