Clear message

Let's use this page to create a guide for people who are new Launchpad. What do they absolutely need to know? Not just about Launchpad itself but also the community.

*Maybe we can add in here a description of all the features and what they're used for? I was confused for the longest time what the Blueprints section did. Also add information about what "sprints" are. I still have no idea what they are. Also maybe write or point to a Beginner's Guide to using Launchpad highlighting the different sections and what their main purpose is. As it stands right now, new users are kinda left up to their own device to try and figure out the mechanics of the system.

I think we need to point out the difference between Launchpad and Launchpad Help as when I started (i.e. just clicking links to see what happens) I couldn't work out why I seemed to be getting a different page when I click the "Logged in as <user name>" link. This depended whether I was in Launchpad or Launchpad Help. i.e. "Who is <user name>?" in Launchpad and "User Preferences" in Launchpad Help. When you know why this is happening it's OK but initially it was confusing. This might be solved by having the text say "Logged into Launchpad as ..." or "Logged into Launchpad Help as ..."
