Do you like debate about religion ( seen a lot of those)? Do you like to flirt? Post pictures? Seek companionship? Play games? Are you new to the forums? Do you like to post threads? What's your fix? How much time a day to think you spend in the forums?
Well that is a whole lotta questions
I like the variety of conversations and personalities you are introduced to and get to know through random bits of conversations.
I don’t spend all too much time here anymore. If I averaged it I would say 20min a day???
I will usually offer a few words in support of others or use the forums as an introduction to writers I might want to follow, but I never come to argue and I am too introverted to flirt, even if I would want to...
I hate the negativity that can be in some threads. I love the fun threads, but not many of them around lately. I like threads that post pictures. I love meeting people, and its where I find a lot of the people I consider following.
I think that the religious tolerance shown on HubPages is inspiring and reflective of an evolving world moving quickly towards global understanding and universal peace.
I find it fun, to offer some words of wisdom that only I could, one liners are the future!
I enjoy being graced with the presence of some of our awesome authors and our HP team but mainly, love the personalities that come through.
I love that hubbers seldom bulls**t each other here and are always so polite and considerate. I think its wonderful that all the threads are profound, meaningful and have really useful advice! And while some forums are just thin disguises for obnoxious flirting and sex-talk, here on HubPages the forums are on a much higher level.
I can't really estimate an amount-of-time because I leave this and one other site (not a forum) up a good part of the time when I'm doing other stuff on the computer. So, technically, my computer is on the forums for - like - 19 hours a day (but I'm not always involved when it is). I just kind of pop on "whenever" and see if there's anything new to respond to, ponder (and then respond to) or get a laugh from. It's also a good accompaniment to television (which these days is never worth paying complete attention to). I avoid all religion and most politics. Based on the fact that I noticed my name among the "most active in this forum" on the "books/writing forum", apparently that must be where I hang out most often. I like the occasional "in-depth discussion" about anything (you know - everyone "discusses" for - like - 34 hours, off and on.... )
I like that they have white backgrounds with black text and pictures by peoples names.
Low standards are the key to a happy life
So is always making sure there's a little idle foolishness to go along with the stuff that's neither idle nor foolish.
I like the community, the exchange and the fact that the circle is growing larger and larger with every passing day. I like that there hubbers who lend themselves to each other offering help, insight and inspiration. I like that the forums, like life offer both that which I feel close to and that which I choose to distance myself from.
And I like hubbers that ask questions like yours!
I will be able to answer this question when the plastic wrapping of my 'newbie' status wears off.
The forums show that hubbers are tolerant and able to discuss diverse views calmly.
I get lots of instant support and help for any technical problem,mostly related to hubs or any SEO matters. I also love reading forum comments of Greek and Misha.
I think it is a cool place to visit from time and time again!

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Is it a trend or is it being initiated by HP? Just curious.

No idea why.

Why do I say that? Because I'm guessing something happened that motivated HP to include this in the HubPages Weekly:*Start*What Are the HubPages Forums for? Are There Any Rules?The Forums allow the community to complement each individual Hubber’s talents and interests. We hope they provide a living...

Why are questions disappearing?Recently this has been happening a lot. I get a notification that someone I am following has asked a new question so I click on it only to find that I get a message telling me the question has been removed. Why? Is there some new HubPages process...

I jumped into WebAnswers a few weeks ago. I find I get plenty of WebAnswers help there from the community, although there are no forums. Community help is structured through questions and answers, so, no religion and politics and no just-for-fun discussions. It's all about business. I feel I'm...
