The entire rest of your post just goes on ignoring the fact that everyone here figured out how to use the website, so there's no reason to complain that I can see.

You can't make the assumption based on a few people. When there are thousands of viewers, their success rate will be quite different, and for example I figured out how to use the website just because I had enough time and effort.

Now when you go back there you'll know how to use it; you learned something new as did I, our UX vocabulary has been expanded.

That is great for us as we are willing to learn. That is probably not great for the 1/1000th of site viewers who might, for example, make a business proposall to the author. Thus a chance will be lost.

I would deal with this problem like this:
1) On the first view, show a message "use arrows or mouse wheel to navigate"
2) Slowly fade the message so the screen is uncluttered again
