I totally agree with @degreeck about the StackOverflow sites. They can make a new user feel uncomfortable even asking a question sometimes, although there not quite as hostile as the Arch Linux Forum, a forum shouldn't project a, what I would call a hostile environment for new users to the point your scared to ask a question about a topic thinking you'll be critized more for your lack of not properly wording or formatting the question you want to ask. @degreeck wrote: I can honestly say that Stack overflow is not "beginner friendly".

Hello GitHub Community. Although I'm not new to GitHub (have been a user since 2012) I've never really taken the time to actually learn the actual process of how GitHub works. I've learned (self-taught) just enough to usually get part of the way through something and realize I've made a complete mess of things, get frustrated and give up. After switching from Windows to Arch Linux a year and a half ago I have a much better understanding of most things related to Linux and now I want to become as proficient as possible with GitHub. I'm in the process of starting a blog (static website) using Jekyll and intergrating the blog with GitHub pages. So I'm fairly confident that I will be using the community forum regularly as I begin my journey in learning how to use GitHub starting from the beginning and working my way through. Thanks to @that-pat and the rest of those responsible for taking the time to create forums like this for beginners like myself.
