  •  Welcome to Daily Kos, jplanner. (13+ / 0-)

    Here's a goody page for you - the New Diarists' list of diaries. Look for the ones with titles beginning with "New Diarists:  " for tips about finding your way around. This diary has lots of info about groups.

    I find new groups by reading lots and lots of diaries. When I find a group I'm interested in, I click on the ♥ next to their name so their diaries will flow into my Page; if I think I want to write for them, I ask them for an invitation to the group.

    •  thank you very much (7+ / 0-)

      have actually been here a few months (blush) regularly. Just never knew where to go to look for stuff. It's not obvious...wouldn't know what to search for

      •  The previous version of DK was much more (9+ / 0-)

        user-friendly, in my opinion. When I joined in 2008, I started reading one of the daily community diaries every afternoon (the pootie diaries, in my case) and I discovered the old-timers were very kind and helpful with my newbie questions. That's one way to go. Another is the Help desk (link at top right corner of each page). Markos, God help  us all, is planning yet another version of the site, so learn what you need to know to get around, then sign up as a beta tester whenever DK5 starts rolling out.

          I don't even know existance of any of the things you mention.

          It makes it very hard to encorporate new members. Then when you make an etiquette mistake people jump down your throat sometimes. (not often) or at least assume you should know. I looked exhaustedly...have never seen a site that does not have such things in an intuitive place. maybe the powers that be could have an intro to new members link. Or maybe they are trying to discourage new members.

          Sorry to vent, it's been unwelcoming. I really do like (love) D overall. It is unique. It feels like home now...but lol just like home I feel a bit like an outsider and not quite part of it all to be honest.
