When you first come in it is good etiquette to thumb the one page you enter on, no need to do more - this is a place for learning, sharing, a bit of fun and chat. It's not about thumbing. OK. Thumbing the first page is often called "thumbing the line" in chat herds. Then, let people know you are here with whatever greeting you like.
After you have done that, explore, page back to see what's been discussed, or to see if a question you have has been answered. Look at the discussions, there are multiple pages of discussions now, remember, join in the chat - whatever benefits you the most when in here.
