If the mods want to lock this, I am cool with that. Just trying to help new users out and what not. Feel free to post any advice you have if you want, any experience helps new users. I think it is our job as seasoned users to provide guidance to new members and make sure their transition to the community goes smoothly. The less confusion and increased clarity will help ensure a fun and exciting Bungie.net experience. I was trying to take some initiative.
