    How much time do you spend on here?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Scarecrow28, Aug 18, 2008.

    I'm not sure if their's been a thread like this before (I didn't see any when I did a search), but I was just curious how much time you spend on this forum on a daily basis. I've only been around here for three days and each day I've spent around a total of 1/2 an hour. What about you?

    There is, or at least was, a section of everyone's profile that says how long we've spent on the site in total. If it still exists then someone else will have to direct you to it because I've forgotten where it is, or was.

    Anyway I'm on everyday more or less for 10 - 30 mins type of time.

    Hmm, this forum is practically my internet time. When I'm on the internet, I'm on the forum. Of course, since I'm practically always on the internet...we have a problem. :p

    Well, I have no life and really no job, so I'm here alot. I jump in and out throughout the day just to check on what's going on in WF-world, as it's far more exciting than my own life.

    30 mins to an hour, counting only the time I actually pay attention to the forum. I usually leave it minimized at work (along with animesuki). :)

    too much time.
    being house bound in a small town is so boring
    and you guys make me feel wanted and liked.
    I actually feel younger again.
    even if I do mother a few of you.
    you never tell me to shut up or go away.
    thank you for giving me a life outside of Marathon.

    Over the summer, I would spend wayyyy past 2 hours a day on here. Now during school, I barely have time for 5 minutes.

    30-60 minutes or thereabouts... just as long as it takes to see if there are any responses to my prior comments and/or any new threads where i might be helpful in some way...

    then it's on to the other 2 writing sites where i do the same thing... when finished with this daily 'chore' [not an unpleasant one by any means!], i then tackle all the work that came in overnight from people i'm already helping with their writing and the new ones that pop up daily... when done with that, i work on ongoing projects, stopping to deal with new emails as they arrive...

    so, the bottom line is i don't stick around just to 'chat' or anything...

    Yeah, I got addicted in away:rolleyes:. I blame Rumpole, he took me away from a site that was similar and yet...not this one.

    I proudly admit that I can spend hours at a time here because it's just a wonderful place to be.


    :cool:I'v technically been banned by my mother:cool: Couldnt stay away though:(

    Since its the summer, I spend probably 2 or three hours a day on here.
    In the school year it'd be more like 30 minutes to an hour.

    I don't spend much time here anymore. I try to spend an hour maximum on here in total a day as I have other committments and the forum cuts into my writing time. I used to be rather active though... shame on me for that!

    LOL! Your hut is right next to my old place Chimmy. Just be careful if you go near the garden. It does actually bite! :eek: (And sorry about the smell. I didn't realise a corpse bed would smell so bad... no time to get rid of it at the moment, will get around to that eventually though! Promise!)

    LOL! Now, that is funny, I thought something was "off" with that smell...*shrugs*...it's all good. The Tavern keeps my mind off of it. :p

    It usually depends. There have been days where I have been on here for an hour, but then there are also days where I'll visit for like 4 or 5 minutes and then move on to the next site I'm glancing at, just because I don't have very much internet time. Like tonight, I've been browsing the site pretty quickly for the last 10 minutes, and I'm about to log off, sooo.... it really just depends. Some days I'll spend a full hour on here and then some other days it's 7 minutes. :)
