Forums use Poll: Fun, fan or need a fix?

I've been noticing that every time I pass my desk, I refresh the Forums Portal page. Does this make me a forums addict? Do I need to go to a meeting? How about the rest you...

How often do you check in, what kind of user are you?

I'm the kind of user who is afraid she may need a twelve step program. I check on the forum at work between clients, when I come home for lunch and when I come home after work and then one last time before I go to bed. I don't want to miss something that I may need down the restoration and camping road.

Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night just to see if there are any interesting new threads.

Don't believe me? Check the time stamp on some of my postings.

Almost always on the computer at home and work. My boss's are in to camping with SOB's, but love that fact that I am crazy enough to rebuild a vintage coach. Our IT guys like that I have it up and running so they can "look" in and let me get the blame. Always leaning something new and adding to my list of to do's.

Hi. My name is Terry, and I am a Forumaholic.
I know I can stop visiting the forum whenever I want, I just don't want to stop...

I was afraid I had it bad, but I have never gotten up in the middle of the night...... yet. My wife has said I have not been paying enough attention to her lately though.

First and last

First thing I check when I boot up in the morning. Last thing I check at night before I shut down. In between, I check it a few times.

I never look at the prtal page. I just keep hitting "New Posts" from the forums page.

I live on the portal page. I'm disapointed when I go to a VB forum that doesn't have a portal page, because I'm so spoiled by this one! I check in all the time. If I'm at my desk for a few minutes, I'll bring it up just to see what's going on. I sometimes don't hear Dave talking to me because I'm busy reading a post (but he does the same thing to me when he's playing online games, so all's fair). I guess I'm kind of addicted, but I ain't hurtin' no one.

Always running in the background at work...

I find it helps to have a complicated spreadsheet open at the same time, so that if anyone comes into my office, I can switch to that and frown in concentration. A messy desk also adds to the perception that I'm very busy...

I check the forum from a conputer on the domain at work. That system has no auditing of internet useage. That system (I have 4+ in my cube) has the monitor located so that you have to enter the cube to see the display. I also agree with Mel about the messy area!

Morning and evening routine . In between if I can . Middle of night when I'm up (menopausal night sweats-what joy )
Not knowing enough to be afraid... (I know more than I did, but I did it anyway!)

Yes, yes, and yes

While the forum is not always on in the background, it is almost always on in the background. The winter weather and being home makes this the next best thing to being in, out, or by the Airstream.
