The Official Unofficial ActiveRain Guide


ActiveRain encourages all members to share our knowledge,
and everything we need to know is just waiting to be found.

How do we easily find what we need?

A new member of ActiveRain (Newbie) has little knowledge of what to search for and if they begin their ActiveRain experience by reading The Dead Rain Scrolls and scrolls and scrolls of outdated Posts, they may be lost forever.  Newbies need a current Beginner's Guide To Success in the Rain. 


Per ActiveRain, this is required reading:

Weltanschauung: The guiding principles and philosophy of an organization; a world view

Understanding The Guiding Principles and Philosophy of ActiveRain is essential knowledge for ALL Members.


 

The Official Unofficial ActiveRain Guide
(Written by the members for the members)


In the beginning, ALL Newbies should seek out and join The ActiveRain Newbies Group.  After joining, immediately read at least three posts that have been written by Active Rain Members.  Take a deep breath and then leave a comment on your favorite post. 

Log on ActiveRain every day, read at least three posts and leave a comment.  As your confidence quickly builds, increase the amount of reading and the number of comments that you leave. 

Welcome to your new adventure.
