And also do you keep any minimum number? I do keep of 10 so i can make more and more friends. And its lovely to be here on hubpages forum.
You know, I don't count...
...but I bet a pretty high ratio of Hubbers would say "too much!"
More than last month that much I know
but I am eating less now lol
10 more and i will be 200 but i will wait till tomorrow morning (Only more 10 hrs:D)
It is hard to say how many forum posts I write daily. If I see a discussion that is interesting and that I have something to comment on I will.
And as we have seen in action, if you post too much about nothing your hubscore will go down quickly
It's an easy math:
You multiply the number of months since you have joined by 30 and divide your total posts by this number. For Susan it comes to 1496/(15x30)=3.3 posts a day. Not precise, but gives you an idea
Whenever I see an interesting discussion, I join in. So, to answer the question, never counted - though will know how much when I post in this post
I'm with Shil1978. I pop in once in a while, look around, and post in places that look interesting!
Personally I enjoy the Forums because I find a lot of the topics funny, didnt know it affected your hubscore but to be honest the hubscore is not that important to me anyway.
After only asking the occasional question or else taking the occasional break from working (and posting a few here or there), I've recently "picked up steam" to several per day. After not ever being sick for two years or so, in April I got some "whopper" of a "flu-type" thing; and I discovered that if I don't feel like doing anything else I usually have energy to post (and post and post). I do like the funny ones, in particular. As an aside, my HubScore has been fairly steady-ish, no matter what I do or don't do on the forum (but it's not my reason for posting either). Looking-for-laughs aside, it's a great way to learn what there is to learn about HubPages.
I make forum posts or am browsing but constantly on and off the computer since my two sons squabble over it, lol...but I try to make a presence lol
5 usually! a day
I try to go for the threads that I can add something to it if possible
The number of times you post depends on your reason for joining HubPages. If you are talkative and want to be part of a group and not that satisfied with your earnings or not interested in earnings, you will find yourself posting more frequently. Also posting and writing hubs are what the hubber can control. You can not control the number of fans that you have or what you will see as your earnings each month. I noticed that one commenter was happy at getting 200 posts. That's fine, but I would be happier over achieving something that others recognized such as earnings or my fan base. If my posts become more than the number of hubs then I would have to reconsider why did I become a member of hubpages.
It depends entirely on who's asking a question and whether I have the answer. Or if there's some interesting discussion going on in which I feel like contributing.
Otherwise I don't put a number on it or have expectations as to how many I can or should post.
linda, my posts now outnumber my total number of Hubs - but (for good or ill) a lot of my Hubs tend to be "big, long, comprehensive" type things; while a lot of my posts are "quickies". I guess my only reason for mentioning this would be that I would hope people wouldn't look for numbers and make judgments about which Hubbers take their writing seriously, based on the numbers. Not that any of us has to worry about what anyone else might think about us (if they spend a half second thinking about us at all anyway) - but for some reason I just thought I'd mention that. I guess I'm a "clarifier" by nature (obnoxious as that probably is ).
LOL may be hubpages will give you the job lady for attendance.
usually depends on the topic that posted in the forum. If the topics are interesting, might be post up to 10.
I read a lot of them, but unless I think I can add something I don't reply.
There are a lot of Hubbers out there that are very knowledgeable and can answer a question a lot better than I can...LOL

Hi,A little bird told me that HubPages are considering charging Forum Users for the amount of space that they take up when they reply to Forum posts, and quote screen after screen of someone elses comments above their own one line contributions.This makes the forums very hard to read, as it's hard...

Paid forum posting is a business that's growing rapidly because of the glut of money in politics and the desire of commercial interests to promote their products and to blunt criticism.Should paid forum posters be forced to acknowledge that they are being paid? Should they be banned from posting...

I just wonder why some people put up forum posts which are longer than my hubs.

I generally avoid the non-HP-related sections of the forums (categories like books and sports). Partly it's because all the religious and political discussions distress me, partly it's because it's a time-waster.But mainly, it seems like an awful lot of the output and discussions in those forums...

OK, I heard the objections to my idea of no hubs/no forum posts and see the validity.How about a mandatory "Introduce yourself" post that has to survive not being flagged by X number of people in X amount of time and if they pass, they have access to every forum. Otherwise, no...

ok... the title might have got you reading.I have a little game that I play. I select a forum subject and then try and post all that I can to make sure that no posts on the forum subject show on the front page.. Guess what the category is
