This is my first day here, I'm hoping to learn a lot. The first thing I noticed when using Tor was that silk road is closed. Am I using Tor wrong? Or does the server just close sometimes?

Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

.onion websites sometimes can be unstable; I've encountered Silk Road offline constantly
If you can connect to other .onion websites, it's a server-side problem
