I just wanted to address this (and the other posts like it) because it's exactly how I felt when I joined - the only way I found to get past it was to just post more. The close group is close because they post allllll the time. It's easy to say "just post more" but I know it's hard to do and can be really intimidating. But do it anyway cause most of us are friendly and want to know you.
