Thank you for letting us beginners know that we should ask our questions here.  I have been asking them to other people and I guess I have been driving them crazy.  The one thing I don't think this site does well is explain 'HowTo...' if you know what I mean.  Again, thank you for the heads up.  Enjoy the holidays and reading.

I'm sorry to see you feel this way. Especially since it looks as though you've been a member for a long while.  PBS has rules and guidelines that every new member needs to read before doing anything, and old members need to reread them odccasionally.   I joined this site and then just explored it for about 2 months before I did any trading.  I'm not saying that's what everyone should do, but it is a way of familiarizing oneself with the practices of the sites I join.  I find that going to the forums of any type of site that is interactive is one of the first thing to do after joining.  It helps me see if I think I will fit in and if I agree with the objectives of the site.  PBS has done a great job by me of explaining things along the way with prompts and explanations as I do things.  There are also the Tour Guides who are assigned just for that reason.  I hope you find your experience here as a member as enjoyable as I've found it.  I've met many wonderful people and gotten more books than I was trying to give away.  But then I'm a known book hoarder!  Glad you're here.

I found it all confusing at first too.   This forum gave me a lot of insight and told me WHERE to find the help I needed.  I had read all the rules several times but it all gets jumbled up in your mind when you are new.    This is a GREAT place for answers and everyone is so helpful and nice.
