Weekly FAQ link, introduction, beginner's Q&A, and general discussion thread
Please read our FAQ
Familiarity with a good general overview of Stoicism is also highly recommended. The FAQ has a section with starting points and other resources for newcomers. The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy has a good general entry on Stoicism. For a less technical, highly abbreviated and simplified introduction, Donald Robertson's blog posts A Simplified Modern Approach to Stoicism and An Introduction to Stoic Practice: The Three Disciplines of Stoicism can provide a few of the basics. For more technical overviews, the Stanford Encyclopedia of philosophy has a good entry on Stoicism, and wikipedia has one as well.
In addition to the FAQ, there is a page of links to examples of previous threads and other resources related to frequently discussed topics for which there is no FAQ entry, and the subreddit wiki has additional resources, including Community Content Selections, such as the Introducing Stoic Ideas and Stoicism for a Better Life series.
In addition to the enforced rules regarding quotes and citations, we strongly encourage (but do not require) posters to include a link to the relevant part of an online translation (even if it is not the translation quoted). Translations of Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Epictetus, Musonius Rufus, Diogenes Laertius's Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers, and Cicero's On Ends, Tusculan Disputations, On Duties, Stoic Paradoxes, and On the Nature of the Gods are all available.
Finally, reddiquette applies to the subreddit.
