Searching, FAQ, Memories, Cuts, and YOU!: Troubleshooting for New Members!

It's summertime, and new members are popping up like daisies on EGL! Even though EGL grows all year-round, the numbers of new members on EGL during the summer is exponential, and they often arrive eager and enthusiastic, full of energy- and full of questions. Lolita is a complicated world, and a HUGE community like EGL can be intimidating, and at times a bit hard to understand. Even the most seasoned member was new, and each wide-eyed new Lolita could one day become a veteran. That said, it behooves the older members to be receptive of new members, but at the same time, it's also wise for the new members to be well-informed! Consider it getting your swimsuit wet before a dive.

Much of what Lolita has to offer is learned through lurking; simply watching the community and soaking up information. But, when the answers aren't simply flowing by, a question might form! So, it's one thing to shout, "USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION!" And quite another to know how it works. Don't worry, soon your google-fu will be strong. That's what I'm hoping this guide will do.
