Noob here. Question:
I read elsewhere that I must melt my soap puck into the mug.

My first wet shave was yesterday and the puck stuck into the mug with a bit of water in the bottom of the mug the night before. Still stuck tight after first shave.

Am I missing something here, or am I OK?

Jeff

Not all soaps react the same. Some stick very easily while other don't. Melting is never my option of choice thought. 
I press soft soaps, grate and then press harder soaps. At most I'd put the dish in some hot water (bain marie style).  
In your case it sounds like its stuck already. Next time, after use, you can press it down hard with the back of spoon or even your finger. 
Once firmly affixed its time to load, load, load. Have fun.

Welcome to TSN Jeff.  Great to see you posting on your second day.

It's not necessary to melt a puck to get it to stick.  Usually if you just wet the bottom of the puck and gently press it down, it will stick.

Welcome!

If I'm pressing a puck into a mug or bowl I always grate the puck then press.

For beginners, I generally wouldn't recommend melting or grating - as I don't find either necessary.
