Question Where is the newbie sticky?

So I'm a long time sagetv user, but only rarely have delved into add-ons or customizations. I'd like to explore, but find this Customization forum daunting.

Is there a newbie how-to or FAQ? If so, can we get it stickied to the top of this forum?

Here are some things I am looking for:
What is a stv file?
How are they incorporated into sage?
What can they change?
What are some of the "easy", "eye-candy" mods? (I am not looking (yet) for added functionality, just a new fresh look)
(perhaps most importantly) How can you go back if you have a problem?

Before you fire off a RTFM, understand that I have poked around. There is just so much, and it doesn't seem easy for someone to get started. I think a lot of Sage users would like to try some of the great extensions discussed here, but walk away before really getting started.

So, can you help out a newbie?

There is no real standard way of installing a plugin. they all seem to have varrying installation steps, meaning the installation instructions are up to the individual developer. Closest thing to a newbie is the list of installed customizations, which will lead you to the imports thread.

For definitions of what an STV and STVi are and such, check the SageTV manual.
