I don't post alot, mainly because I don't 'feel' like I have enough experience to really contribute.  I will post occasionally, if I think I might have something useful to say.  Wink and on rare occasions, just cause.  Though I am trying to work myself up to being more 'talkative' on the forum.

I haven't responded to the poll yet.  Maybe I should put "other", I'm not sure.  According to my profile, I post about 1.26 times per day.  However, my average has huge variances.  I might make several posts in a given day and then none for the rest of the week.  It varies quite a bit on time constraints.  If I'm busy, when I check the board, I only look at replies to my messages and the staff area.

I rarely start topics, but make a few posts per day.

I haven't answered because I'm...  actually not sure.  I always feel like I'm not posting that much but then I catch a glimpse of my post count (which, as I recall, doesn't even include posts in, say, the staff area) and I'm reminded that actually I post an awful lot.

I guess I'll probably wind up with daily or several times a day, because I suppose that's probably what it really is if I sat down and thought about it.  I'm sure there are days when I don't post anything, though, and days when I post message after message after message.  (My profile claims an average of 7.8333 per day.)  I also don't find myself starting topics much anymore, unless they're official-forum-business-y things like announcements or bringing up an issue in the staff area.  Mostly I reply to things.  Smiley

Well, my profile says a little over once a day, and that's a pretty good average.  Like everyone else, though, I'm a sporadic poster.  I'll go several days without posting anything.  Other days I have to stick my nose in everywhere...

I've only started a few threads in all the time I've been here.  Less than 10, I'd think.

Well, my profile says 5.897 times per day, but I think that's really sporadic.   Like most people, I think, sometimes I go for days without posting, adn other times I post a lot.  Depends on the threads and whether I think I have anything to comtribute.

It is kind of funny because if someone would have asked me, I would have guessed your post count to be much higher.  I think that is because when you post, you actually *say* something instead of just a "me too" or the like.  So, I'm much more likely to remember what you have to say.

Profile Says - 2.022 per day

Like others here have said, some days I'm more chatty than others.  Weekends there are times when I don't even turn the computer on.  In general I read more than I post, mainly because I don't always have anything relevant to say.

I almost never start threads.  (This is not just a here-thing; it's pretty much universal anywhere "start threads" is a relevant way of thinking.)

I post replies when I have something to say.  Sometimes there's a lot of stuff to respond to -- today seems to be one of those days.  Other times I feel I can go a week without saying anything at all, because nothing has content on which I want to offer input.
