I usually just go to the "View posts since last visit" option - unless I'm on a different computer - and I was curious to know what other people do.

I click on the "View posts since last visit" option. I sometimes lurk around. I often cyberstalk certain posters. But don't tell the BA, Milli, HUb', Tranquility, or Gullible Jones. 8-[

I generally only go into the forums I'm interested in, only because I know I won't have anything good to say in the others. :D

Same here and which forums changes depending on what's going on.

Each time I visit I click "view your posts" to reply. Then I read each forum.

Usually I read the community posts then browse at random through the other fora. Most of the time I just read; now and then I reply or ask a question/post.

I picked option one. I tend to do a lot more reading than actual posting. Sometimes I lose track of which topics I've replied in... 8-[

Depends how much time I've got. If I've only got a little bit of time I'll just go to BABBling/ General Astronomy and see what catches my eye. If it's a REALLY short amount of time I'll just quickly read the posts for threads I'm following closely.
If, as is the case too often :wink: , I am procrastinating and have too much time, I'll check out every forum.

Pretty much the case for me.

It really depends on what is happening on the board. If I'm involved in a discussion, then I'll tend to post there unless something else catches my attention. If I'm not involved in a discussion, then I'll just look at the new posts.

...I always keep an eye out for any JayUtah posts...they're always interesting.

I go to the forums I'm interested; BABBling, General Astronomy, Against the Mainstream, and sometimes Martian Chronicles.

I wanted to say from left to right, but my sense of humor gets me in trouble a lot. :wink:

Usually, I'm pretty thorough, going through all the forums. But my first morning visit or if I'm in a hurry, I usually just look for the highlights: threads of interest in BABBling, General Astronomy, Martian Chronicles, maybe a couple of others.

I go to every forum, but in the ones where I feel out of my depth I skim a few threads and then "hit mark all read". I've got this hang-up about leaving anything unread :roll:

Yeah, so do I. I think it's part of my obsessive personality. 8)

Yes, eventually I either have to go through and real all the threads or at least mark them as read. I can't leave them dangling indefinitely.
