First time visitor...where are the FAQs

I hate to bug people but I started rummaging around on the site and got totally lost trying to find the "rules of the road" information.

I am new to this form of communication; I have never posted a message and few emails at that.

I assume that there is a place to start, rules to follow (over and above the good manners, mentioned in the registration) and other social conventions that are transparent to long time users but unknown to me.

Where should I go on this site and how do I get there?

First suggestion: a drop-down named link to a moderator and information for the new people. Like what's an LQ?

You could just send me an email rather than take up bandwidth on these basic answers.

Yes, I know people don't think that they need a "baby" sitter or minder but the older I get the more I actually rely on them.

Well, at the very bottom of the page is a blue bar with links. One of them is "Rules". But basically it's a pretty free form forum. LQ just stands for Linux Questions (at least as near as I can tell).

Some forums also have "stickies" posted at the top that address some FAQs about that forum or some topic in that forum. For example, in the "Distro" forum, there's a sticky about "Why doesn't my distro have a subforum?"
