For me any discussion about improving the documentation is completely on topic here and even if technical quite alright with me.

To be honest then I am rather confused due to a big overload of my person.
What I can say is this :
I think that I started with FreeBASIC on September 16 , 2017 and since then I have used what time and energy that I could muster on learning about FreeBASIC either by reading about it , trying to program or participating in the forum.
I am sure that I have visited the "getting started" , I must have but I visited so many pages that I simply cannot tell how many and exactly which , the freebasic.net webmaster probably have a list of that ;-) I have studied so many pages , and also used the off-line documentation but that mostly because it has a search facility that actually works - for me the on-line search has not worked as expected.
I have navigated any way that looked useful on the online pages trying any link that looked useful , and visited e.g. the keywords list pages to help locate what functions I needed.
Generally I prefer the On-line documentation to the extend that I don't need to search for the stuff , because I can then have many pages open in browser which I can not in the help file.
Thank you for your interest in improving stuff for beginners :-)
