There is a "buying bitcoins" page on the bitcoin wiki. could be a good starting point for said guide, if it is not good enough by itself.

I found the weusecoins.com website really useful. It's super simple and gives a good introduction.

Getting users to understand how BTC work is going to be really important, most people I've talked to about it so far have no idea! Maybe having a thread related to it as a locked sticky in GD or somewhere really visible would be of use?

I liked buying them on Switch poker https://www.switchpoker.com/ you can deposit either in euros or in BTC and you can exchange between BTC and Euro for a max 1.9% fee. Following this you can sent the BTC to any adress you like (or keep them on the site).

Both depositing and withdrawing is free :)

Maybe I'm missing the point of this thread, but I was hoping to find alternative methods of earning bitcoins. Any suggestions for me?

I'd say just come up with something that someone with Bitcoins wants to pay for. That could be real goods, virtual items, services. I've been trying to pay everybody doing anything for me in Bitcoin. If you've got some programming skills, maybe post your resume in the Programming Jobs forum: forum.php?f=361

I don't know of any other sites just giving Bitcoins away but if you hear of any, please post here!

I'm still trying to figure out exactly what it is that people with bitcoin want to spend bitcoin on. Until then hopefully I can find something to earn some sweet bitcoin.

I should also note, I have just made 10 posts, which according to feedzebirds.com, should get me 1 bitcoin. Now I just got to figure out who to give my address to so I can get my bitcoin! I'll let you all know whether I actually get a bitcoin or if this is all just a scam.

haha the most efficient way to spend bitcoins? find somebody who is good at accepting them? If you just want to get rid of them, I'm sure you can find anyone to buy them from you. I'm always buying :)

Interesting idea. This could be a decent way for people to get coins. Hopefully the offers aren't too scammy.

As nanotube says, www.bitcoin.it is the real go to site if you have question or need an introduction. If that doesn't help then one can always ask here :) Another good site for keeping up is www.bitcoincharts.com (I know most of you probably have head of it, but it's still good having it up here for ppl that haven't)

Thanks for that, didn't know!
Also, has anyone ever used http://btcflip.com/?
I used it today, send the minimum amount that was possible, won and still haven't got it back.
This could also be a warning, I guess :P
