Hello and a big welcome
to everyone new to diaspora\*
With Google+ closing today, you might have just signed up to diaspora* looking for a new home. We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us! We have a big existing community of former G+ users, and you could try tags such as #gplusrefugee and #googleplus to connect with people you know from G+.
We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.
Here's a few tips for getting started:- There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
- You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
- One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
- If you have any questions, post something with the #question or #help tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!
diaspora\* has some very simple community guidelines, which we hope everyone will feel able to follow so that all members can have the best possible experience here.
We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!

this study has been taken apart (in german language) in the comments to the following article and seems quite obviously just another attempt to dramatize the results of cannabis use by “bending a studies content”. the comments point out the flaws and shortcommings of this study much better than I am able to. I find it interesting to watch how this goes around internationally:Thanks a lot for this addition; I read this article in the morning, since I was busy trying to read everything that was necessary to know today, so I wasn't able to find any more in-depth source than this. But as it is common for greater media outlets, they don't hurry to go much more into detail, but at least, they should've embedded the scientific article from which they have taken the information. At least ZEIT ONLINE did so. Thus, thanks for your comment! Before I read anyone' scomment to expose the actual facts on it, I prefer to read it from the primary source.
I am #newhere and wonder how to “like” your commentAnd from my side, a jolly welcome to the Diaspora. I hope you enjoy your stay here. As @V. T. Eric Layton has already said, there is no way to grant someone a «+1» as one used to do on G+, but when you're missing it, you can demand such an option in the Diaspora Forum for Development, so that it will possibly be developed in the near or far future. At least, here, you've got the option to demand it, feature you may not experence everywhere else. :D
