As a n00b here, how do I not be a dick?
I'm less than a month old in Ubuntu Touch years. I'm not a developer at all, but I do like to contribute to the debugging and improvement side of things. e.g. I have had a lot of small failures already with apps on a Nexus 5 running Ubuntu Touch and don't know where to go to write up my issue(s); where's the right GitHub/GitLab?
I have a Nexus 7 Gen II LTE that I may have bricked trying to put KDE Mobile deb onto it before being pointed towards to UBports. Where can I get some info on fixing the problems I probably created?
Does the forum have some rules of the road about posting? Like I'm in the Purism forum waiting for the delivery of a Librem 5, and they have a lot of good rules for how to behave in their forum to keep things organized and useful for searching into old content.

We have only some rules here: try not to offtopic, be respectful and use a family friendly language
About on how to post issues it depends on where are they (at the beginning is quite confusing to know which part is responsible, so ask :)) some guidelines though:
- Issue with a core app? Here: https://gitlab.com/ubports/apps/
- Issue with other apps? Check on the info of the app in OpenStore app or its website
- Issue with the system itself? If you don't know what part of the system is you can use the general github repository
I think you have some info there to start digging in
@CiberSheep THANK YOU!!! That was such a great answer.
I just discovered the UBports app on the phone. I'm not sure why I never thought to run it first. Too eager to find things I want in the OpenStore to notice what is preinstalled that I want.
