FaQs is a place that will tell you all about the site. It tells info on the ranking system, moderators(who are awesome!!) Editors, covens, ect.
Lastly adventure around. Want a helpful connection even more? Go to covens, read a one that suites you, apply, and wait if you'll get accepted. *Note*: Spell casters is the largest coven, no application needed. Automatically puts you on council postion*

Agree to chatter rules. This gives access to helpful hints, and social interaction with others. It's the quickest way to meet friends.
As to respond to the question, I suggest relearning the basics, and trying to learn more on all aspects of the craft modern day. Still depending on your branch, Alexandrian, Gardnerian, Ect, still pick up where you left off.
The craft doesn't state what to learn, or when to practice. Refresh and continue. Good luck!
