Welcome. I've been around for a bit, some things that might not be immediately intuitive: There is a "hubwheel" beneath your name and the more you participate in the community and the more your contributions are appreciated, the more the little "wheels" will fill in and eventually you will make a full rotation and earn a badge. Once you've earned a badge you can gift it to a post or comment that you appreciate. These "badged" posts/comments can be found under the discover tabs on the left and they're a great place to find quality content imo.
It's a fun place with some interesting people of all sorts. Let me know if I can be of any help. mk is the creator and is really accessible and open to suggestions. Cheers!
