Hi Squangos, I'm spelugx (usually just :x though).
Welcome to H2G2. I'm am Assistant Community Editor (<./>ACE</.> and I'm a sort of official greeter. I hope you find lots of interesting things around this site. To help you get started go and have a look at our newspaper (<./>ThePost</.>, especially the links page where you can find all the groups and meetings places. If you want to find out about something specific try a <./>Search</.>. To find out more about some of the jargon used on h2g2 try h2jargon A632431.
You seem to have some interesting views there, and are willing to discuss them. So you might want to start a conversation at <./>Askh2g2</.> where lots and lots of researchers will see them, and just straight in, or you might want to write an article on it and perhaps submit it to the <./>AggGag</.>.
Personnally I like to hang out in the H2G2 Café where anyone is welcome (A202924). One useful page is 'Spicing up your User Page' (A690518), which will help you start creating a space to call your own. Feisor, another <./>ace</.>, has created a page of hints and links for new researchers at A719840.
Another good resource is the <./>DontPanic</.> Help Centre which can be reached via the 'Help!' button on the toolbar at the top. To find the busiest places on hootoo you can look at the list of busiest conversations on the <./>FrontPage</.>, but <./>Askh2g2</.> is usually always busy. If you want to see what other people are writing, have a look in PeerReview. Everyday five articles are published as being 'edited' by the editors, and you can see what has been edited in the past at Month.
A cool thing about h2g2 is the large collection of smilies that you can put into conversations . The full list is at <./>smiley</.>, but most normal ones like ; - ) are accepted .
If you have any questions just reply and I try and sort them out for you .
HTH & HAND.
x - a *friendly* person
