Um. Sorry to go all gravity on you, but one thing that happens on this board is that people, for good or ill, get a crash course in one of the long term core principles--self relience--of the event. The feeling here is that if you can't get your ticket without help, you're going to be a drag on the energy and vitality of a city without infrastructure--no grocery stores, no running water, no electricy, no plumbing. Perhaps we are a good reality check, perhaps we are a pathetic rearguard action as the event draws more and more people and becomes less and less a do-it-yourself city. Time will tell. Many of us do offer encouragement and friendliness on the slightest excuse--so perhaps having some standard keeps us from burning out.
My guess is if the op shows herself capable with only one or two taps of the clue bat, she will be warmly welcomed.[/list][/code]
