Do people usually check individual forums, or do they typically look at: 'all new forum activity'?
Just wondering what the trend is...
I usually check the new posts on the front page of the forums.
I check the front page but if I am posting something I look for the correct Forum.
I base my entire life on the teachings of BC99 and his prophet CG.
Same here. Sometimes I will go way back if there is nothing that interests me that is recent.
i've only just started here, but I find myself using the first page of the forum more often than not.
I check forums individually, because quite frankly even the titles on many of the individual topics in religion and politics upset me. So I just look to the left and check out - Knowledge Exchange, Need Help, Hubbers Hangout, and 30 Day Challenge.
I just look on the left at knowledge exchange and need help..the new forum posts are usually time stealing nonsense like word games and sacred text thumping
Every couple of days I'll use the following "forum system":
Quick scan of announcements, quick scan of knowledge exchange (in case there's something I can learn), quick scan of the two or three categories I'm most interested in. If there's nothing to read or offer in any of those, and if I'm looking for something to do, I'll then scan the main bunch of new threads (or at least the first couple of pages of them).
The rest of the time I'll often just leave the forum up in a window, even if I'm doing other stuff on the PC - and then I'll just pop on and look at what shows up in the main group of new threads to see if anything catches my eye. If you have tedious or draining work you're doing on the PC taking mini-breaks for "foolishness" (not that all the threads are foolish) can prevent headaches. If I see a thread that "inspires" me - there's my unplanned coffee break.
i typically scan the first page of activity then check out the groups I participate in
I only keep an eye on the HubPages-oriented forums and ignore all the flaming and spam in the others.
I try to ignore the latest posts section and just click on the forums that interest me, on the left.

Has anyone else noticed a serious drop in quality among the Question portion of HubPages? For the past several weeks, nearly every question that is featured in the "my account" section has been ripe with misspellings and just contain a general lack of worth in my opinion. I feel the...

I read both forum entries and answers/questions entries but the two features seem to overlap. Many of the questions asked in "answers" are technical questions asked by hubbers about HP. Some elicit long threads of answers just like in the forums. Since the "questions/answers"...

What makes some forums highly contentious and analogous to a verbal battlefield and verbal battleground? It seems that some can have amicable discourses while others have quite heated verbal altercations that border on the vituperative, viperish, venomous, and utterly vitriolic. Yes,...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...

By the whinging on the forum. As time's gone by, I've felt less and less inclined to use the forum, help out, participate etc.Maybe I'm alone in my thinking but the p*ssing and moaning that goes on is cringe worthy and pathetic. Do folks ever read back before they hit 'submit'? There are some...

HI I'm new.. and I think.. that if someone (that isn't a Hub Page Member)visits my Hub page and scrolls to the bottom of my page they can see all the forum activity I have been a part of. I'd rather this info not be available for the world to see... is there a way to "turn off" the...
