Learning a New (Pagan) Culture

The discussion about rules and moderation elsewhere made me think of something that I'd love to hear comments from people new to Paganism about...

Namely, one of the things I know is sometimes very hard for people new to Paganism is figuring out all the individual community and cultural cues that go along with it - what to call people, what to wear, what's seen as polite, what might be seen as too pushy, what the range of good etiquette is for your first ritual or gathering in a public location, versus one at someone's home, versus checking out a group in detail.

So, I'd love to hear from people what's confusing to you, or what you wish people would explain more clearly - but also what's been helpful to you in figuring that out. Is stuff different for you online than it is in person?
