Well, you got this far already. What do you need guidance on?
There are some rules though, see viewtopic.php?f=2&t=44705

You can give feedback on stuff other people made in the Music Cafe, discuss sound design or instruments, brag about your PC in the Computer Setup section or head into off-topic discussions. For some sections like buy&sell you indeed need 5 posts minimum.

Hardware vs. software, analog vs. digital, Windows vs. Mac vs. Linux, samples vs. physical modelling.

That should get you started on the right foot. YW. :tu:

Click on his/her name, then follow the link "Send private message".
It doesn't available until you have some topics started. I can't imagine a more stupid spam barrier than forcing newcomers to creat senseless posts))

the longer you stick around, the more you can get away with. they just want to make sure you are who you say you are. trust is built over time.

Then don't create senseless posts, engage properly in the community to build a profile and a genuine trustworthy reputation.

Yeah, I got the idea, but it's something more long-term and really stopping you from doing what you want quickly. But anyway - it was not a big problem with that two posts, so now I'm able for more senceful chatting with no rush)

I'm also relatively new here. I used to be able to send private messages to people to be able to buy things from them, but now I'll have to make two posts in the forum. I guess this is my first one, sorry.
