Wow, I'm not sure I am even replying to this properly. I have never replied to a blog, or message board before.
If I am doing this right. Here I go.
First let me say thank you for making me, an extreem nOOb, feel welcome.
I feel like a complete moron. I am an intellegent person. But I feel absolutely stupid when I start reading all of this.
I was refered to this site by a how to e-manual. I hope to retire soon, and am trying to get involved in somethin that I can make a couple hundred dollars a week to supplement my SSI. I was like the undiscipline squire in the story who played all summer and didn't prepare for the winter.
I recognize you have no real reason to assist me, but I am asking anyway. Is there a site, or something, or some one who will or can take me by the ahnd and walk me through all of this using layman terms.
This seems to be a great community to become a part of, and could meet the goals I have for a financial suppliment, as well as being down right fun.
So please help!

k, instead of sending this to all my traders, I went ahead and made a topic to refer to. Until we get our FAQ backup, here are the simplest rules for the ultra-n00b. Its not an exhaustive list of everything Freebie, but thats not what I'm going for. Dabbs has a great intro to n00bs thread here
which looks much prettier than mine. To get something for free:
Sign up for a freebie site. But don't just go to the site, ask around for someone paying or trading for referrals. once you find someone you trust, they will give you their link. You click the link, sign up, (confirm you are under your referee) and go to the offers part of the site. Find an offer(s) that you like, click it and complete it. This usually entails you giving them your name and address, as well as signing up for a trial offer with your credit card. If you clicked an instant offer, it will credit within 10 minutes. If you didn't, it should credit within a couple days. Once you do get credit, you contact the trader and give him your paypal address or your freebie link. they then do the offer or send you the paypal, and the trade is done. Then you can look for yourself to get refs and when you complete the site, you get your gift or paypal.
The cookie that tracks your offer purchase has to be intact in order to communcate back to the site which will in turn grant you credit for the offer. here is my checklist, others may not agree with all of them, but its what I use at least. Peter also has his guide here
Open Internet Explorer 6
Go to Tools>Internet Options>Privacy>Accept ALL cookies and turn off popup blocker
Turn off spyware/virus/firewall
open C:Documents and Settings\Administrator\Cookies so I can see the cookies appear when I click the offer
Open IE, Clear cookies and Temp internet files
Open IE back up and sign in or register at the freebie site.
Hold cntrl to temporarily turn off any popup blockers, Click the offer, check the open cookies folder to make sure cookies appear
Leave webpage open for a few minutes.
Wait for credit.
Most of those steps are just me being paranoid, but better safe than sorry is what I always say. The main things is to use IE or FF, make sure you're ACCEPTING all cookies, and make sure you clear cookies before logging in or registering for a new freebie site.
There are plenty of other threads in [url="http://www.anything4free.com/forums/index.php?showforum=195"]Freebie 101[/url] that you could check out for more info, but let me know if you have any further questions.
