When you joined, you received several links to FAQs and the like. One of them was:
http://www.rockclimbing.com/...post=2028602#2028602

On that page in part was this:

NEW FOLKS…
We are a dynamic community and some of the regulars have been around since the inception of rockclimbing.com. There are lots of covered topics so if you try to jump right in and start new threads, it will make everyone sad. Try responding to someone else's thread first, rather than starting your own.

Please do not, make a "hello" post or thread.

On a slow day 10 people may join the forums, on a busy day it may be 100. It's not a special occasion when somebody joins. So when you start a "hi everybody I'm new here!" thread it's like you think you're the Queen of Sheba or something. You’re inviting the lurkers to come out and toss you up a bit. {see above remark} So unless you are familiar with forum boards and can stand a bit of flaming right off, it would be better to just respond to a thread rather than start your own. Don't take it too seriously when someone calls you a "n00b", and accept that other users ask you to make a forum search before asking some over debated topics.

To get a sense of how our community is, you first should read some of the information from the past:

I think it's clear to all of us that a honey badger don't give a shit about the rules.

I love new person hello forums. They tell me that the person just jumps in headfirst without checking out the environment (probably not someone I would climb with) or doesn't give a fuck about the rules (which I might be okay with).

It isn't about rules - it's more like a "Hi I'm new here" post is pretty much content free. BFD. Who cares?

Just some random new guy on a site with thousands of users. He's not as important as he thinks he is.
