I am one of the site's <./>Aces</.> and it is my job to meet and greet new researchers and make sure that they are ok and can find their way around the site.
One of the first things you can do is to give yourself a name by clicking on the preferences button and replacing your researcher number with the name of your choice.
Once you have done that, a page well worth looking at is the <./>Welcome</.> page. Here you can find out some general information about the guide and links to help pages.
May I also suggest visiting the <./>GuideML-Clinic</.>. GuideML is the computer language that h2g2 uses, and this page will help you to fill your user space with all sorts of neat stuff <cool>
If you are wondering how to make the smiley pictures like <biggrin> then click on <./>Smiley</.> which will take you a page which shows all the smileys.
If you are feeling a bit lost then clicking on <./>Dont Panic</.> will take you to the help pages, or feel free to ask me by clicking on the reply button below, and I will do as much as I can to help <ok>
Hope that answers any querys you have for the moment.
