Could we improve what we have in the wiki and refer people there?
I would add some more recommendations:
1. Introduce yourself to the community.
2. Don't leave questions without a reply.

explicitly so others aren't concerned about wasting efforts.
4. Ask when you don't understand.
5. Answer other people's questions when you can.
