Interesting post it might be good to have this a mandatory read @ signup but I realize that goes against the intent.
Couple things I am unclear on especially on my initial start (though I joined last fall I only started really using the site recently).
Is the #(Insertname)_ a channel? I am sure this will sound like a stupid question to most but I have been using #_____ on twitter and FB so I can find relevant material I posted sometime in the future with ease. This is a habit I assume I need to revisit on steemit?
Now if I use the #____ on steemit and that #____ happens to be a channel I assume I am then posting to that channel? Assuming I understand this.
As for the rest of what you wrote seems like common sense to me and a good basis to start from. Thanks for putting so much time into this and making it easily understood!
