Seems like I frequent DC well, um, er, frequently. But whenever I post something, I tend to frequent it more frequently. Like every 5 seconds to see how many people have clicked on it and who has responded.

Is this a personality flaw in me (if so, it would be my only one :yup:) or do other people tend to check their own posts frequently?

Yes.






J/K. I tend to look and see what responses/comments have been made.

Check my post??

Every day and I have had a warning in the last 30 days that I agreed with the manager of the forum in what they said. I am a visitor here and must abide by the rules here.

I'm here morning, during the day (for a while), and at night. I read everything...:wave:

Tend to check the site throughout the day when I'm stopped, but especially after I've posted something. I'll check in every 10 to 30 minutes or so for a few hours.

'Other-please specify'. I usually don't go back and check my posts. I do on occasion subscribe to threads that interest me whether I post in them or not. If I start a thread, then I would go back and check it or subscribe to it.

I have to agree with RamRod. Sometimes I wonder why it takes so darned long for your post to show up on the first page? Sometimes never!!! There has to be a reason for the big "time lag" between the post and when it appears. But when it does, I usually check a couple times a day. Seldom post, unless it's something I really want an answer for.

It depends on how interesting the original thread is to me. Obviously, a welcome greeting is polite and hospitable and does not require a lot of follow-up. A thread that I start, or one that I post a reply in, was interesting enough to elicit that response, so it is interesting enough for me to want to read others comments.

As to exactly how ofter? It depends on the day. If I am just generally looking around, I will check every couple of hours. If I have time, and there is something that interests me, I'll check the "New Posts" every 15-30 minutes. If I do not have time, well, sorry to tell you all, but there are more important things in life. I can check when I get home, usually before I go to bed.

I check my posts after reading responses to it or after the thread has progressed. Sometimes I check my own posts because I do not recall what I exactly wrote.
Sometimes, I need to check because I realize I am about to contradict myself and want to avoid putting foot in mouth.

I voted 'other'.......it just depends on if I'm around the 'puter' and wether-or-not the thread/post captured my attention.

Having said that, DCC is checked every time I get online.....I love this place!

I chose "Other", as I receive emails when someone posts. I then check to see what's been added.

I voted other because in the user control panel I have it set so any message I post or post an answer to it automatically subscribes me to that thread. Then I receive an email every time there is another response.

I voted others because I have instant notification when I replied to a post. Then when I sign in I go to User CP first and checked all those that I have subscribed to. In the first place, I subscribed to them because I was interested in the topic being discussed. Then after i had exhausted all those subcribed post, I clicked on New Posts to see if I will be interested in any more topics. Before I leave, I go to my User CP again and ticked off those that do not interest me anymore. Habit.

I don't post nearly as much as many of you and I often forget where I posted. I'd like to see a forum button for "My Posts" to help me find them quicker.

I hate making typos and inserting misplaced words, etc. As such, I go back to my posts quite often to discover and correct such errors.

I do wish there was a more direct method to view my posts, since the current method is really a pain in the ass. I like the way its handled over on Firing Line. You can view and click on your name from anywhere and you're there.

Regards,
Dan Ortego
