I'm new to this, and I need help
I know that I am going to get flamed and someone will say "Use the search feature" but I did that. I searched and I am still completely lost. If no one wants to help, and would rather tell me how much of a stupid n00b I am, please refrain. There's really no need. I realize that I am new and that I know absolutely nothing other than the fact that it is possible.
If someone could tell me the things I need to know to get started, I would greatly appreciate it. Even someone pointing me in the right direction would be nice.
