First of all, welcome to both ibotta and the community.
Below are a few suggestions that may be of some use to you.
Check out the threads in each of the subfolders in the LEARN IBOTTA folder. There is a lot of information in there that may answer some questions you may have. They likely will give you many more questions, so feel free to reach out to the community for answers to those questions as they pop up.
Here is a post that has a bunch of do's and don'ts that also may be of interest.
You will find most 'deals' that are posted by others are in one of two DEALS subfolders:
DEALS >>> DEALS FORUM <and>
DEALS>>> DEAL STACKING
@SandraHill2022 Just jump in with both feet. Don't be shy. Share your deals, ask your questions, comment on other posts. Hopefully this is a judgement free zone. As @Rickibotta said, check out some of the other posts and get ready to make some friends.
If you want to comment back to someone, just type an @ and then their names will pop up and you can "tag" them directly - or just reply in the same thread.
