UFO How many times do you visit the forum?

I have been coming to the MBN a lot lately, like I used to do back in 2003/2004 when I was 14 (and yeah I know I need to stop that), and, like most of us know there isn't actually much content to read once you've read things in the morning or even the day before. So, is it a lack of content or an actual lack of visitors that generate this slow-paced forum?

I just want to understand this visitors x posts ratio better.

Same like SpaceGuitarist said, I have been coming here a lot lately. And I am not even in my early 20's yet! Crazy huh? I think I might be one of the youngest people on the MBN. Maybe the youngest, but that is just me. I'm going to try to not check as often though. I feel like I have been checking about 4-5 times a day.

I usually visit once every few days or so, but in special moments like this (When a future LBA-related announcement is coming) I visit it daily.

As for the slow-paced forum, I think both things are related. Very few guys can't really talk A LOT about things (not enough to create, at least 2 or 3 hot-threads where 2 different groups of people are talking). And this lack of "variety" doesn't promote newcomers.

In other forums I've been, there are usually many sub-sections that are active at the same time. If you go to one of them, you'll find some people that aren't posting in the other sub-forums. Here, we only have, like what? 15 or 20 guys actively posting, and they are always talking to each other in the same threads.

Honestly, I don't mind it. We've a whole forum for ourselves, and the internet is our oyster. Better than being a self-secluded group inside a much bigger forum.

Once every couple of days (usually) ever since I made the conscious decision to stop this life-consuming obsession. (still not as bad as smoking though)

I get emails right when an answer is posted, so I come back at different times of the day to check only those threads.

But that is pretty cool, mbn as an obsession. You should be proud

Nice, but I wonder, what do you do in it's place?

One can say this excuse to pretty much anything, right?
Like "I like to pat turtle's butts once in a while - but hey, still not as bad as smoking!".

@ Jesse, Darkflame: Good, but, Y U NO vote? otherwise we won't get the demographics right.

That reminds me of this thread... At that time I still had a dial-up connection, so I came here like once every three days or something... And found it really weird that most people come here more than once a day.

It seems that I voted "constantly online" though, so I guess I voted at around 2004 or something .

Yet, now that you have broadband connection, you come here twice a year.

I used to pass by often years ago, then I started again last year for nostalgic value, perhaps every other week. I sort of wish I had posted more, relative to my join date and today's date.
