Just dip your toe..
Remember as a kid when you would stand at the edge of a pool and dip your toes in to test the water? Afraid to take that first dive?
Well I know when I joined WA, I felt that way and I see every day the newer members being really apprehensive about taking that first dive into the WA learning.
This is where we come in.
Help the new member feel welcome and answer any questions they have and be patient with them. (no I am NOT implying that you aren't doing so). Get them engaged in the community, encourage them, coax them along, offer your hand, give them that little "push" they need.
To New Members
NEVER be afraid to chat or ask questions. We were all new at one point. We completely understand. The only dumb question is the one not asked. You can only fail if you quit. So please help us to help you.
We are a community here at WA. Lets help, support, prod, poke, push (you get the drift) each other to be successful.
