1) HAVE FUN playing EVE Attention If you having fun playing EVE then you are doing it right - even if someone else says you are doing it 'wrong'.

2) Ask advice if you don't know how to do something in New Eden but bear in mind that the advice may be incorrect, loaded, or meant to deceive. Twisted

3) Good places to ask questions are the various EVE forum boards applicable to the activity or the new persons one. Asking on General discussion will invariably invite sarcasm. Other good places to ask questions are the EVE Uni channel and sometimes the Rookie channel in-game.

Play 1 account. Eve is not a job.

Try lots of different things.

Don't feel like you have to wait to go to null, do pvp or anything else.

Be cool with people. It's just a game and those other pilots are actual other nerds, just like you and me.

No good deed goes unpunished

Buy the most expensive ship you can't afford to lose. Fit it poorly, take it into Null and lose it in 10 seconds. Then go onto local chat, whine incessantly until everyone blocks you, then quit in noob rage. Best time ever...

Oh and fly solo...
