To HubPage Forums. I love interacting on the forums. How about you? What do you love about the forums?
I'm sooooo addicted. I love to see what people post and have to say.
I think I'm becoming an addict. I used to stay away from the forum because I found the threads too confusing to follow. Doesn't take much to confuse me. But now I find myself checking in every few days or so just to see what's going on.
I do like the forums as well:) A nice way to meet new hub-fans:)
i am so addicted! i agree habee we do need a 12 step program
i love the forums because its a great way to get to know other hubbers. everyone has hubs that tell a little of their story weather it is plainly stated or if its a hidden message but the forums give us a chance to get to know hubbers on a more intimate level
While I don't post much, I am addicted at checking the forum.
I check it ALL the time; I just don't often reply to what I read.
I'm never tempted to visit the forums. They are a waste of time.
Just as I NEVER check my Adsense earnings except at month end!
Excuse me while I just check my Adsense (again)...
I wish I was as active as prior. It's a great community to be addicted to. Everyone is so supportive.
Guilty as charged! Just can't stay away from all you lovely people, what can I say.
Me toooooo! But the laptop has broken so I can't pop on whenever I fancy until my new charger arrives! It's sooo sad!
I've said it before and I'll say it again - I am powerless over my addiction to the forums even tho I've pretty much conquered all my other addictions (except food) so now its food and forums
. . . and movies . . . and music . . . and magazines . . .
well, food, forums, movies, music, magazines, buff boys . . .
oh! and shopping!
I admit to my addiction to HP, and HP forums. I turn my computer on first thing in the morning, go straight to my e-mail to see if I have any news from HP. While that's going on the second tab is already going to hubpages and as I log in I go back to check my mail, and then Forums here I come!
I don't get anything else done.
mines outside fixing his jeep but i do keep peeking to see what hes up too...
Forums as brain power!
I really like the interaction of the forums. I like the conversations, games, discussions & debates. I dont join in on all of them, but I like to read them. One of the discussions recently even led me to write a hub.
I do not have an addictive personality as a general rule. I can either take or leave most things. But I have become addicted to HP. I have set so much in front of the computer the last few weeks I have calluses on my backside.
Well, I have answered this question before and I can honestly say it's not an addiction. I don't feel guilty or bad, when I'm not here.
Even with my 17K posts in 5 months, it's still not an addiction.
@Justine76 - Does it work? I'm sure it has some impact, but how much isn't really known. Also, the impact it does have can be countered by making comments on other people's hubs, because you are still getting yourself noticed and I think both(commenting on hubs and interaction in the forums) are equal in value.
That is just an opinion, because HubPages keeps certain aspects of authorscore/hubscore quiet(secretive).
Hope that helped somewhat.
I was just curious, for my score I usally notice a drop after Ive been fairly active in the forums. So, I was jsut wonderig if it was different for others.
Im not very concerned with my score, as I am only here recreationaly.
averaging more than 115 posts per day over a 5 month period is not an addiction?
Yup. Guilty as charged. Even when I'm not writing in the forums, I'm reading other Hubs (learning about what it takes to make money here) and peeking in on conversations in the forums...and sometimes I get quite vocal. No matter what else I'm doing (editing or writing for clients, studying, doing homework, etc.) I'm also always checking on the Hub.
It's just a great community, it feels very friendly--even sort of family like. There's a lot of fun, support, intellectual stimulation...*other* stimulation LOL...a lot of great people and writers here.
*sings* Can you feel the love in here...
Definitely addicted and become more so each day... Hubaddict here.
I enjoy the forums occasionally to check in with fellow hubbers, to ask advice, and to get an overall sense of the community. Sometimes I also need a break.
Great thread, Fluffymetal
Welcome all newcomers.....and What's up all veterans?
I'm definitely addicted to the forums. Look what happened when I took my break from HP, lasted a whole half day before I just HAD to check the forums and then HAD to leave a reply in a thread. THEN went maybe a day and a half before I gave up taking a break completely. Guess I just don't have much willpower when it comes to HP
Just to let you know Fluffymetal posted a Hub called HubAddicts_Forum
Guilty. It's a great place to meet others, talk and just relax. Great ideas come forth in the forums too. I enjoy the company.
this was an old forum started long ago. I wrote a hub about Hub forums and the addiction so I thought I'd revive it
Forum addiction is so, so, so....I'm lost for words! Glad you revived it! How are you doing?
good when the forums are having fun instead of being so serious
You BAD Tony!!! But, hey, she did say "addicted"...so maybe you're right......
The computer is the least harmful of my addictions
I honestly have nothing to do with coming here, it is my fingers that are responsible for pushing the buttons, they have a mind of their own.
And your bad too BP!!! Watch those fingers of yours! The tend to post up naughter pics here and there!

I'm not sure what I'm doing in here yet but for some reason I'm addicted to this community of writers. I could spend all my waking hours in here but I know I can't. There is so much to learn about for just writing in HubPages and there's even more to stuff to DO in here like read, comment, etc......

How can I tell if I'm addicted to sugar?I love sugar and always want to eat candy. I know it's bad for me but I crave it. Do you think I could be addicted?

Imagine being stranded on a desert island and assuming the island had good weather, what things would you really miss about your present life, apart from friends and family?
