Welcome to bitcointalk.org!  This thread goes over the basics of bitcoin, so I would suggest checking it out.  Look below for more info about the forums.

Forum Tips
theymos (the forum admin) explains how to use Watchlist.  This feature makes it easy to keep track of threads you have posted in.

Sent PMs are not saved by default, to change that:
(I'm pretty sure the default does have them saved now, instructions here just in case)
Go to 'Profile'
Click 'Personal Message Options' (left side)
Check the box that says 'Save a copy of each Personal Message in my outbox by default.'
Click 'Change Profile'
It will save messages in your outbox after you send them from now on.

Please use the report feature if you think a post deserves it!  We will take action on reports.

Read up on the trust system in this thread.  If you have questions about it, ask them over here.

USELESS SPAM AND BEGGING IS LIABLE TO BE DELETED/EDITED WITHOUT WARNING!

Edit: Edited by Miningbuddy, added link to rank/position info
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.
Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction.
