Talking very new to this

so i've just decided to enter into a sort of polyamory relationship. i'm usually the type to just jump right in, i'm up for anything. they're a married couple, they have been for 7 years, together for 10. they have a son. the wife is bi. they've done this before. i just want to know if ya'll have any advice for me. i want to hear everything because i don't want to go into this blind. good or bad, i don't care. lay it on me!

Welcome aboard.

You'll find threads full of information on the New to Poly and General Discussion boards.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

One really good early tip would be to make sure that whatever expectations you have are made clear and that you know what their expectations in respect to you are. For example, my wife and I recently had a bit of a misunderstanding with her boyfriend because she neglected to tell him about a date that she was going on with her (now) second boyfriend. She didn't think it was a big enough deal to tell him, and he feels he should know about any possibly romantic events that don't include him or me. To beat the dead horse a little, communication is key.

Yep, communication. Make sure you are all on the same page.
