Quick start tips
I am amazed at the helpfulness of people in this community. As I reached 50 posts, I wanted to give something back as well, but what?
I started out helping a few people navigating the HF site, then decided to take it to the next level. Below is my take on an Unofficial Quick Start guide, adding visual references to many of the tips already on the site.

This is great! I've blundered and found how to do some stuff, but other things I never would have figured out on my own. This should be a sticky!
