    Welcome :) I'd love to visit Seattle someday - The Musiquarium, Twist, and Ray's are on my to-see list.

    Rule No. 1: Use smileys whenever you can. They are awesome.

    Rule No. 2: Be polite.

    Rule No. 3: Don't wade out into deep discussion waters unless you can back up your argument with frilly language and lots of hyperlinks.

    Rule No. 4: Don't drink and drive.

    Rule No. 5: Never, ever rickroll a thread. Not kosher..

    You can endear yourself to all by having a good read of the FAQs. They contain answers to a lot of questions often asked by newcomers. The Forum Rules are also worth casting your eye over to make sure you don't inadvertently do anything naughty.

    Oh, and by the way – welcome. :)

    Welcome to MacRumors! The thing that stands out in my mind that I hear a lot in these forums is for people to do a search of the existing threads for answers to their questions before posting. This point is covered well in the Forum Rules that others have provided links to. I hope you become a long-term contributer. This forum is a lot of fun, entertaining, and a great source of technical information on Apple products. Once you get enough posts, you can also contribute to the political discussions, which can be very lively and a good opportunity to share your point of view on politics and social issues. Great fun.
