How should we respond?
I'm not suggesting that there's any "penalty box" called for here. I'm just wondering how we should welcome a new user and not scare him off by pointing out that it's rather awkward to ask five questions at once when you're a newbie to this particular forum. I posted this here on Meta because I'm looking for a better understanding of how I can help and encourage a person in a situation such as this.
[And for what it's worth, I have a big interest in electronic music as a fan; I don't post many questions or answers on those topics because my personal performing experience is with acoustic music and classical music.]
