Haha, you aren't being an AHole at all. This has hands down been the nicest site i've been too. I have damn near been crucified on other sites such as Reddit for asking novice questions. And i do plan on giving those links that AGG linked a read (And other long articles people have linked) My only issues is that i have an extremely hard time focusing on long articles so i try to find shortcuts to information. I do however have a hard time finding threads making perfect sense, so i end up making threads to suit my own understanding.
I agree through, there isn't really a shortcut to this hobby. So much to process, so it takes a little time for sure.
