Hello there, welcome to SoM. This site is mostly from my experience a really friendly site. It typically strives for a community, and well learning process.
Try newbie central, faqs, ect. First engage yourself. If your new to magic, make sure to have fun, look at the articles, join a coven that suites your needs, ect.
Ask questions, don't be afraid. Everyone has to start somewhere. Message me, if you need help. Good luck, and blessings.
