MetaHelpfulNewPostsAdvice

Earlier today in a thread, there was a comment from Quackles:
“I know this is slightly off-topic, but as someone who hasn't made a post on MetaFilter yet, do you have any advice on what to consider, uh... worthy? I suspect I am beset by the same anxiousness.”
I know that we have the FAQ (lots of helpful advice in there), but I thought it'd be nice to just have a place to discuss how to ease into making a first post. People can share their tips, their suggestions, their own experiences making a post, finding out it was a double, or how some posts just don't fly and how some just take off into weird and wonderful places. General MetaHelpfulness with putting something out there for the community to engage with. Please share if you feel so inclined.

Let’s Encourage and Help Folks Make Their First Posts

Over the past few months, we’ve talked about ways to encourage first (or second or third) time posters and help you/them become more comfortable with posting to Metafilter. I propose we spend September helping new posters successfully make the leap into the wonderful world of FPPs. [more inside]

My first post to metafilter was deleted. Why?

I recently posted my first thread to Metafilter today. Within five minutes, it had been taken down. Did I happen to violate some policy/taboo/sense of etiquette?

This was my first front page post - how did I do?

How'd I do? This was my first FPP - too politicky, too religiousy, good stuff, bad stuff, indifferent? I like a good ego stroke as much as anyone, but I really want to know if I helped make MeFi a better place.
