Good job on the introduction tips! I joined two years ago and I wish something like that has been there.. I just remember some Hubski veterans were grumpy when the Reddit wave arrived, so I was welcomed with a lot more negativity, so good job! :)

The thing which I always try to explain to redditors on reddit when they mention hubski, is, that it's way more personal than reddit and many new people will underestimate that. I think a good analogy for Hubski is a table in a bar where 10-20 people are sitting and having a chat. And you just entered that pub. In real life, you wouldn't just join the table and be like: HEY GUYS, LOOK AT MY CAT! And once you join the table, you will realise that many people on that table have personal connections and at the beginning there will be a lot of stuff you don't get. But after a while of listening to the stories and getting to learn the characters of the people, the 'bar visitors' will welcome you to join their group of regulars to share your story and ideas. This is what describes my experience as a redditor the best. I hope it'll help some people to understand this place a bit better :)
