Hello! Welcome to the forums! The first thing you should do is sign up at coinbase. You can check out my hub (http://hub.nahtnam.com), which has a lot of links that take you to my favorite sites!

Do you guys have any tips on getting started?

- An online-wallet like blockchain.info is a good way to get started
- Best start by buying a small amount of Bitcoins first to learn how to use and securely store them, before investing a lot
- Avoid investing in altcoins, mining hardware and Bitcoin securities unless you really know what you are doing. Most of those are bad deals.
- Faucets aren't a good way to get started anymore, because the amounts are so tiny that it's not worth the time (and it's difficult to send those tiny tiny amounts)

You can buy bitcoins at Mt.Gox, VirWox or a bunch of other places. Some may need various verification steps. I'd not say avoid all altcoins. But I agree most are not worth buying.

In a digital world fiat is a dinosaur,
And while Bitcoin may just be four,
There's definitely very much in store,
As dollars fall and Bitcoins soar.

First off, welcome to the Bitcoin community as well as Bitcointalk.org. Secondly, you may want to set up a wallet, I recommend CoinBase for starting out in the BTC community. But, there are alternatives such as MultiBit which is more secure and you have complete control over you coins.

Welcome to the community! Be careful keeping to much on exchanges or in shared wallets -- if your bitcoins are in your wallet, they stay yours, as long as your keep them secure. Good pass phrases for encrypting your wallet.
