I come here at least once a day or spend a lot of the day coming back to it to check for new posts.

I might be logged on for hours at a time while I look at other stuff and come back over and over again but I would guesstimate that I spend at least 1 hour a day total to a really obsessive 3 or 4 hours total on and off.

Good opportunity to thank Nathan for starting and running this site by the way. Big Grin ( Does one get " Frequent Reader Miles " Razz Laughing Out Loud )

So, what do you estimate is your milage here:

1) Once a week at least.
2) 2 to 5 times a week.
3) Every day, even if for only a peek.
4) Every day for hours.

5) Need, professional help ! Haven't left the site in days, or left the house, the pizza take out boxes are becoming a fire hazard, I really should go pee soon. Razz

( Edited, poll thingy: No problem chad, good idea, thanks. )

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Jean,
I hope you don't mind, but I added a poll voting thingy with your entries as you laid them out. This will let people vote without posting a reply, though a reply is encouraged.

Happy

I generally visit every day. This is easily one of the best run/best community forums I have ever visited. I think the best thing about it is the wealth of information in the site. I have learned so much about other periods from the one I focus on form the articles and book suggestions on this site.

Hi,

I visit myArmoury every day. There's just so much interresting on this site. And they design is fabolous!
Now if I don't have anything to do I might sit and just browse the site looking at old and new threads and posts, and reading the same reviews time and again. Also watch the same photos over and over and over. In fact my sister claims that what I watch on this site is a form of porn Eek! , to which I strongly object! Big Grin Laughing Out Loud

But when I voted I voted: 3) Every day, even if for only a peek. Perhaps I should have chosen 4 or 5? Laughing Out Loud

Cheers,
Henrik

Constant and true.

This is my fourth trip here today. That's the curse (or blessing) of sitting at a computer all day.

I don't post a lot though. I'm more of a professional lurker Laughing Out Loud

I can go along time without posting, but very rarely is there a day when I'm not here looking at threads. Then you have the updates ever so often and I have to read those too...

My usually on-line routine goes something like:

1. Check Army e-mail (takes about 30 seconds, and I usually have nothing)
2. Check civilian e-mail (takes abour 45 seconds, and usually consists of 2-4 myArmoury.com Topic Reply Notifications)
3. Log onto myArmoury.com (takes 5 minutes to 3 hours depending on how long it's been since I visited last, and whether or not I post something)
4. Check Albion Armorers news (usually fairly brief)
Repeat

I consider myself a three, but I still probably need serious mental help, too. Laughing Out Loud

I visit every day, except when I am out of town on business (which means the only internet access is through the company computer).

I check in every day but seem to rarely post anymore. In fact, this is only my second post in weeks. It's a great site, though, and I wouldn't miss a day unless a computer wasn't available.

I check every day unless out of town or at an event , minimum quick peek to hours at a time. Will post if interested in a subject or have something I feel is worthwhile to contribute. I can't believe you guys are just now getting around to therapy.

I'm very addicted to this site. Not quite 'in need of help', but I'm approaching that.

Note: As for sword porn, I go to A&A, Albion, et al for that. This is more of erotic literature. Big Grin

I check this site everyday. This site has really helped me to improve my hobby. It is a terrific resource. I've found that as my knowledge has grown, so has my interest. It's a kind of sick self perpetuatiing cycle. The more I get the more I want. Addicted? I was in a cold sweat before I read this post.....

Everyday, once, twice... or whatever! Usually in the AM before work, and in the evening after work. Not an enormous number of threads at the moment interest me enough to post comments on, but I dig through most of them just to see what's what, Who's on First, etc.

Allons!

I visit the site at least three to four times a day.
If there are threads that I find interesting, I visit more frequently for longer periods of time.
I too visit Albion Armorers every day! Happy
