Hi @PatientNTUMBAWANTUMB - welcome !
First of all, it's good to have you - I hope you'll find yourself in a warm and stimulating environment here, and that the discussions you have here will improve your work and research.
Basically, the more you put in, the more you will get out - so, read the posts and post your own topics, whether they are questions you have, or points you'd like to discuss, even your own opinions. However, just be sure to read the FAQ before you do so.
If you are a member of a community, please let me know which one, so that I can add you to the relevant group. Or, you can contact your community leader to do so.
Finally, like all things in life, this forum is better when it's shared - so invite your colleagues and others whom you think it may benefit.
