Thesite Posting Habits

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
i've been thinking about different users' posting habits for a while, and I think there's a continuum of posters. At one end you have people who don't post at all, and others those who post far too much - so where are you on this scale?


OV
L
R
PW


OV - Occasional Visitor - Doesn't visit the forums regularly

L - Lurker - May visit thesite forums quite often, but rarely contributes to threads. Only posts if they feel they have something useful to add, or want information about something.

R - Regular - Visits the forums quite often, and may post many times a day. Their posts tend to be more sensible and helpful than the next category.

PW - Post Whore - Visits the forums many times a day, and adds replies to lots of threads, often without any useful addition to the course of the thread. May post many messages in the same thread (usually repeating themselves). These guys are the main contributors to the 'silly' threads in Anything Goes.


Of course, most users are a mix of these, but where do you think you come?


OV
L
X
R
PW

I'd place myself at the X on the scale above - I've been posting more in the past month than usual, but I usually only post if I've got something useful to add!

    I hope I'm somewhere about there. I'd like to think my posts are at least a little bit useful, non?

    This place has become a bit of a study avoidance tactic lately though :chin:

    I would have said "regular" a few weeks ago, but at the moment I don't visit often. I think most of the "regulars" can understand why.

    Like Jamie said, it depends on the seriousness of the thread really.

    When I joined over two years ago I used to post loads - but now mostly prefer just reading. I post in drugs more than anywhere now.
