I obtained most of my beekeeping skills from this forum!
It is necessary that everyone reads some beekeeping books. They MUST be quite new.
To read Brother Adam Stories does not work.
To follow beekeeper forum arvices will ruin all beekeeping.
90% of forum advices are carbage.
When you nurse hives, one way is enough to do it. You need not try all 5 or 10 anternative tricks on your few hives. You need not try all what guys feel nice to try.
I have nursed bees 50 years. 99% out of forum tricks are such that I have never needed.
I have met much guys who do not undestand much about bees but bees stand many kind of beekeepers. It is more bees' ability to adapt than beekeepers' skills.
