Upon first visiting E2, I browsed for a few days to get the gist of what was going on, and how to do stuff. My first few WUs were shockers, and received such a response. I quickly learnt to try a little harder, and use nifty HTML from the FAQ which I had been /msged with the node to (thanks to the friendly Ed who took the time to bother with yet another newbie).

Just a suggestion would be that the Create a node link doesn't show up in a new user's Epicenter until they have vistied various FAQ nodes (if programatically possible - Bones, Nate - you guys can do anything!) would disuade crappy nodes until a bit of research has been done.
