Discourse/Web2.0 newbie: UX Frustration

I need access to some kind of tutorial tuned to fedora’s discourse
I just have zero understanding / comprehension of how to do
stuff as productively as in classic grepping of flat text files. Frankly,
I’d find that easier than where i am now with this.

Close to giving up completely and returning to BSD communities

I’m not certain, but maybe @mattdm can suggest something here.

I can help, but “stuff” is a little broad. Does Navigating Fedora Discussion — Tags, Categories, and Concepts help?

Or, given the grep reference, perhaps you’re looking for search options? See Shorthand search options - users - Discourse Meta for some help on that.
