I joined recently and have really been enjoying this site, not to mention learning a ton!
Couple things really stand out about this board compared to others I have been on:
1. Great helpful attitudes towards newbies like me, instead of the "that's been asked a million times " attitude. ( Which indeed most of a newbie's questions have been asked a million times so I understand this can get old, but is therefore even more appreciated when offered in a positive way as it is here).
2. Generally a great level of respect among posters towards each other and that is great to see. We can all agree to disagree but some boards every other post is a flamethrower match.
Really want to give all of you involved kudos on this board!

Welcome to the forum! And, if you have a question you think is a "newbie" question, you could always try the search function first.
