Make it feel a little more welcome for newer users who struggle socially?

I've just recently joined, and as nice as it is, it's extremely overwhelming. Yes, I've had one or two people contact me, but other from that I feel really disconnected from everything. I'm not sure what to do and I've only just signed up for one class.

It would be nice if there were something put in place to guide a new user through everything, but I understand you're probably trying your best, so feel free to ignore this.

I'm not sure which site you're on, but sometimes there are 'Beginners Guides' in the library, which can help you when you're getting set up. Beyond that, please feel free to always ask in chat! If you have a question about something in particular, or even if you just want to see if anyone is willing to owl, asking in chat is a great place to start. Also, like Valerie mentioned, the rules and guidelines are also in place to explain different elements of the site.

Anyone who is gold, lime green, red, bright blue, teal, or dark green on the site are all grad staff, and are there for people just like you joining the site! I know it can be difficult if you don't know anyone, but if you have any questions at any point, please feel free to reach out and ask them. I'm sure any of them would be glad to help
