    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 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.   smile  If I see a thread that "inspires" me - there's my unplanned coffee break.  hmm

    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.
