All Members , Moderated
This is an open, supportive community where you can exchange friendly advice on how to navigate the magical universe that is LiveJournal.

Whether you’re an experienced user or you're new in town, if you'd like to share tips on how to make the most of LiveJournal, you've come to the right place. You’ll find that LiveJournal users are a pretty savvy bunch. So if you’re looking for seasoned guidance on where to find cool userpics, how and when to use LJ-cuts, post polls, upload photos, and find friends and communities that share your unique passions and interests, that’s what we’re all about. For those of you who'd like to help newer users get comfortable, our heartfelt thanks. Keep in mind that this is not an official tech support community. If you need additional help, we recommend you visit our Support area.

And, hey, don’t be shy. Remember, if you have a question, chances are there are countless others who are wondering the same thing. We were all new once. We're all really happy you're here.

A few basic guidelines about posting here:

1) Please use basic rules of decency and courtesy when posting, whether you are asking a question or answering one.

2) Try to remember to use 'family friendly' userpics when posting here.

3) When asking questions, try to be as specific as you can -- the better your question is phrased, the more likely it is that you'll get a relevant answer.

4) When answering questions, remember that the posting user may be brand new to LJ and may not know the terms and LJ concepts that you take for granted. Be patient in explaining what you consider to be 'basic' LJ knowledge.

5) While we hope never to have to do this, users who are harassing others or just generally being overly disruptive to the community will be banned from future participation in the community.
