I've been dabbling in php/mysql for awhile now, I still have my learner's hat on.  :)

I just wanted to say hello! I am hoping I can use this place to help me with the learning curve. :D

Hi Colleen. Welcome to phpfreaks! It's been my experience that the best way to learn is to just jump into threads, read the problem and solutions, and/or try to solve them yourself.  I've learned so much from working on other people's problems. 
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Thanks! I agree, I do that all the time, I am self-taught. :)

Welcome :)  I think you'll find this is probably one of the, if not the, most active board for PHP/MySQL.
