My wife and I have a touch lamp sitting upon the dresser drawers a mere few steps from the end of our bed and every night when we head to bed. She will make a bee-line for the bed leaving me the responsibility of reaching up and tentatively turning off the touch light and making my way across a cluttered bedroom floor. In the dark, I find myself navigating a floor strewn with dirty clothes and my son's toys. (Eh, who am I kidding I play with some of his toys more than he does.)
I've developed a system though in my time utilizing this bedtime routine and most of them involve trying to memorize the floor and work around what I thought it looked like prior to turning off the lamp. This works most of the time, but is not fool-proof, so most of the time I'll use my cell phone as an impromptu flash light to find my way across the floor.
Our new community is not totally unlike this feeling around in the dark. We test the floor in front of us clearing it of toys and dirty underwear (pants, for you british readers) and try to slowly make our way through this new alien world.
Some of us may choose to stand back wait for our eyes to adjust and then move across the floor, but you'll miss out on the fun and excitement of trying something new. In a one years time, we'll be comfortable with this community and using it like old pros and helping along new players and users, but right now let's just tryo to keep the cursewords down to mumbles as we tread over that ever so sharp lego piece that I told my son to pick up fifteen times.
