    Do you routinely check the Forums on HubPages?

    I think it's a good idea to check the Forums, especially the announcements from HP staff.  That way you have no surprises as to any new features.

    I checked the forum for the very first time today in probably about 12 months.  Between answering questions, answering hub comments, reading new hubs etc I hardly have time for the forums.

    Having said that, I caught up on a lot of interesting threads today and will try to visit the forums more often.

      I just take a minute to check the HP announcements, then check the new threads.  I woul not have known about all the spam on Hubber's comments yesterday had I not learned from the Forum.

    I saw a notice yesterday that someone I follow had posted a new forum thread, checked it and discovered that it was some controversial political baloney that would only raise my ire, so moved quickly away from that page. I guess I have not explored what the forums are really about yet, but judging from the answers here, maybe I should.

    A person is better off just sticking with the HubPages-related forums, as those dang political & religious forums are very easy to get yourself banned; trust me!  Ha!
    As for me, I check in on occasions, but rarely visit them anymore.  It's just too much drama and redundant babble, for my taste...

      You guys sound like a family, all throwing barbs at each other. But who is going to be the Crazy Uncle. All harmless fun and all.

      Both of you two Insane Mundane and Somethingblue can write a hub together. It's most entertaining.

      True, but you still didn't really have to delete the poor chap, nor our conversation.  Hey, people like us INCREASE page views, don't ya know!

    I check the forums for announcements every time there appears to be a problem or if I need help with something. I also check during contests to see who's winning. If I get notification of a discussion I might want to check out, I follow the link.Since the spam attacks and the video processing threads started I've been checking often.

    If I want to talk about issues or discuss matters in my daily life, I go to myLot and get paid for the time I spend there and where all discussions are kept civil and I've gotten to know people fairly well.

    I do. I enjoy reading and commenting from time to time. I don't always have the time to do so, but when the time is there I do.

    I do when I can't handle too many emails and don't want to write--Tried to check weekly, then monthly, when I started, but gave up! Thanks for reminding me.
