When you're not doing anything else, how long do you usually occupy a space on this site??? About how many posts do you average a day??? I'm on for about 10 min, and avg. about 10 in that time...how bout you?

07-10-2002, 05:44 AM
Oh God, work's pretty quiet so I can be here for hours!!! But I'm not too prolific on posts!

07-10-2002, 07:28 AM
When it's slow at work (and it has been a lot lately) I browse the forums probably a total of a couple hours a day. Lots of times there aren't a heck of a lot of interesting posts to reply to, though. All the threads lately are like, "My Clonetrooper broke! :mad:" and "What's your most favorite top 10 rare figure released between August 1996-June 1999 whose name starts with C but does not end with a vowel?". Those type of posts make me go :zzz:

07-10-2002, 07:58 AM
I average about 12 superb posts a day, getting on several times a day, mainly to check PMs and make good contributions to interesting threads. :)

I'm on here in the morning for an hour or two, but most of that time is spent in a different part of the forums.... I used to post as much as 100 times a day, but now I only get in 4-5 posts. Mostly I read others comments.

07-10-2002, 08:46 AM
So by reading and not posting, it's like you're there and also not there...you truly are eternal! :D

07-10-2002, 08:52 AM
Hey EP, why is part of your post in red? For emphasis? To add a sense of mystery? I'm confused.

07-10-2002, 09:11 AM
I'm here as long as I'm at work.

07-10-2002, 09:14 AM
Same as Bill. I am at work from 10 to 6 M-F so I am always on during that time. Once in a while I check it at home when I have nothing else to do.

07-10-2002, 09:19 AM
Wow, it's like Jonna and I were separated at birth.
We're just soooo much alike.

07-10-2002, 10:27 AM
billfremore, you and I are alike too, if you consider how often we agree on things. :D

07-10-2002, 10:36 AM
Hey man no need to get personal :p

By the way, what makes your post so superb?

07-10-2002, 10:38 AM
Um...just the fact that I make them!

I don't know...like you said...Don't take it personal. :D

07-10-2002, 10:51 AM
Here we go again!

PS Pay no heed to anything Eternal Padawan writes in red. It is a colour that should only be used for Ketchup. I think Eternal Padawan is looking for a wet fish beating also. Bill knows the pain.

DeadEye is superb at post padding, that's all he meant. :)

I long for the return of a prolific posting Eternal Padawan. :cry:
You wouldn't want my life to get boring, would you?

I work for a well-known font house.

07-10-2002, 01:56 PM
So you got a job like mine then ? You working for the C.I.A. Canadian Intelligence Agency too ? What sector are you in ?
I can be reached at %%%-%%$% to decode = 555-5545
I have no clue what I'm doing either.

P.S. I forgot the topic. I'm on it when ever I get the chance.

Well, to get back to the point of this thread:rolleyes:, I'm usually on for about 4-6 hrs a day. Every once in a while I take a break and don't even show up:eek:. Mostly I'm checking my areas, reading, posting, being me:D. I can't access this place from work, (Thank Goodness!!!), so its usually after work and into the wee hours:D

I, on the other hand, do have internet at work, so while i'm at work is when I do my posting.

I usually check this site when I check my email in the mornings. I also frequent this site every night (Sun-Thur) and do most of postings at that time.

Funny, I just recently thought of posing this same question to forumites.

I spend about 1 1/2 to 2 hours a day at this site. This is usually from 10 pm till midnight. I tie up the phone line if I go on at any other time. God Forbid I hope there are no emergency calls when I am surfing this site.

I average about 1.5 posts (according to my profile) a day but since May that number is more like 3 or 4, a vast improvement.

07-10-2002, 10:26 PM
i get on in the morning before work at lunch time at work and about 4 hours when i get home

According to my profile I average 21.67 a day. Who'd a thunk.

for me its usually for an hour or so whenever i can get on the computer at home and i guess 2 or 3 posts a day i mostly like to read the other posts.:crazed: :crazed: :crazed:

07-11-2002, 12:54 AM
For me, it's 3 to 5 hours a day, mostly while I'm doing other stuff too. According to my Profile, it's around 13 posts a day.

For the next week though, it'll be diminished to almost nothing thanks to some personal matters that will require all my attention. :(

07-11-2002, 01:07 AM
Well, good luck with that JediTricks, hopefully everything goes well. Your X-Large e-personality will be missed.
Im here usually for a couple of hours when not working, and on work days maybe a quick check in during work then a short spell at home after dinner.
I started posting largely after the new baby came and I got stuck with midnight feeding duty. Noone's up around here from 10 until 3am - so I need to interact with other SW fiends like all of you!
Im not sure what my post average is, but it's largely been due to the "Canadians" thread in chat and EpII arguments er, I mean discussions, with people who don't understand about Sifo Dyas or why Zam was a lure to get the Jedi on their way to Kamino.

07-11-2002, 02:01 AM
3-4 hours

07-11-2002, 04:43 PM
Zam was a lure to get the Jedi on their way to Kamino.

Didnt know about that. ?=/?

07-11-2002, 04:50 PM
I'm on I'd say about 12 hours a day in total, cause I don't stay on it all at once but I get on the computer quite often. (maybe too often)

Alot of times it varies though, depends on what is going on during the day, there have been a few times when I couldn't get on at all. :(

07-11-2002, 04:56 PM
Is there no social activity around where you live???

07-11-2002, 06:20 PM
Too darn long.

07-11-2002, 06:28 PM
After I quit my old job, I was on here probably an average of 3-5 hrs a day. Now that I have started my new job, its maybe an hour or two. But I do make a point to get on here everyday and check the forums. Once you get addicted to it, there is no giving it up!!

07-12-2002, 08:37 PM
this is my current favorite site on the internet now so im probobly on here alot, my favoriite time is at night to surf around the forums and do trades and stuff

07-13-2002, 10:28 AM
I've got to cut back. I'm a consultant, so I make my own hours, but I'm kidding myself if I don't say I spend half my time at my computer here.

I just pop in each time my e-mail alerts me someone's posted to the threads I'm involved in.

That could amount to 8 hours. Plus I've recently (for a few months or so) been making it a hobby to make some really messed up pictures with my Photoshop tools and that sort of counts, because I post my "comedy" here.

As a disclaimer, while I bill my clients by the hour, I do not count time I spend here. I take breaks and hit the e-mail from the forums.

I'm probably here about 1 hour a day broken up into 10 minute visits on my days off. Just long enough to read some of the recent posts and maybe fire off a reply or 2 if I feel inspired. :)

07-13-2002, 01:58 PM
I'm on in spurts and ventures. I have a period where i'll be on for an hour, then periods where i'm on for a dozen minutes or so.

07-15-2002, 11:33 AM
usualy 2-3 hours a day and in that time about 5 posts
right now I already on 4 1/2 hours bvut that's only cuase I was abcent since monday last week I think

07-20-2002, 05:53 AM
This site is probably the only reason why I stay on the internet. I come on, check my usual websites such as starwars.com, etc. update my websites if needed which takes about 5 minutes. Then I just come on here and wait for people to post stuff, I'd say I'm on here for about 3 - 5 hours on a weekday after work.


07-20-2002, 07:18 PM
well from thursday till 5 weeks later I'll probably won't be here at all or maybe an hour or two in total since I'm going to Australia

07-20-2002, 08:42 PM
Hey Pendo,

I posted on your site. I'm the Ep3 spoiler guy, right?

07-21-2002, 07:03 AM
Yes, thanx! I can't do any spoilers for Episode III because I'm spoiler free! And although there aren't many spoilers yet it's already very, VERY hard!!!

07-21-2002, 04:24 PM
A day? very little.

07-27-2002, 10:32 AM
When I worked for Sears Credit I would hop on right at my breaks. Now I sit on here for 3-4 hours a day with my one job.

08-02-2002, 03:45 PM
I'm usually here from MON to FRI, i log in at around 12:00AM or 1:00PM and i stay logged in until i leave work...although some times i'm not in front of the monitor it will always show i'm online. I log off at 6:00PM or at 8:00pm sometimes.

08-02-2002, 03:59 PM
