A newcomer could be having problems with just one thing which isn't easily answered by just reading or watching. For those of us who has had the light bulb lit and have said out loud, "Oh, I get it", some of the questions asked may seem an easy one to self-research.
So often though, the question asked doesn't really define the actual problem, like "Is my rash because of the products being used?", when in reality it's going in the wrong direction with a stroke.
The one on one imput from the members here usually get it down to the real problem and solution, which often causes the light bulb to get lit and "Oh I get it!" being muttered aloud by many of the newcomers.
Judging from the current batch of newcomers, the videos and instruction threads appear to give many all the basics to get started just fine. "I've been getting great shaves except for..............." is where the active give and take from the forums helps eliminate the "except for's" from the equation and helps fine tune a new shaver going for BBS.
