Users who may be new to the Cross Validated SE Q&A format, and generally have a low reputation score, which starts from 1 at the time of registration.
New users have restrictions that are removed when their reputation is at least 10.
Getting started as a new user can be hard, and possibly even frustrating. Here are some effective approaches to get you going, preferably also in the order specified:
- Visit the Help Center (after taking the tour), which contains lots of valuable information.
- Read the FAQ, failure to do so is asking for problems.
- Read questions from the Cross Validated meta site, tagged with faq.
For other questions targeted towards new users, use also new-users.
