When do you most frequently visit the forum?
« on: December 31, 2017, 05:10:40 PM »

Since this has come up in other threads, I thought I might as well ask outright. I would have thought weekends would be the most popular time, but the statistics generally say otherwise.

Weekends/breaks: Midnight till I've exhausted new posts.
School days: 8 AM and 10:00 PM

If my times of forum usage were a line graph, it would probably be mostly straight and horizontal - in other words, there aren't really any very distinct peaks and periods of time where I use the forum significantly more than other times. I use the forum at what is probably a mostly consistent level of usage throughout each day and week. However, if there is even the slightest of peaks at a certain time period where I may use the forum slightly more than other times, I may guess that it is on weekday evenings, so that is my vote in the poll. I guess it's something quite nice about settling down after a long day's work and browsing the forum and such.  :biggrin:

Whenever I am awake and have time to be on. I work 2 weeks of dayshift and 2 weeks of nights, so my time on the forum varies.

 Now that I have Tapatalk, I’m on 5% more. But, regarding my time? Literally anytime I have time, but even with that said, I try to vary it.

I visit everyday mostly in the late afternoon and evening. Occasionally I will post in school or late at night, but not often.

During 2nd period at school. I've got a project based class (for the most part) and most of the projects for this class, I can complete in 1-2 hours the day before it's due and still achieve a 100, so I don't have much to do a lot of the time. Because this site isn't blocked, I spend a fair bit of that time on this website.

I myself get on a good bit even during school. This is because I have much more free time this year (Senior Year) than last year (Junior Year). On really good school days, I may spend more than half the time at school on this forum.  :-D  :D

It is definitely incredibly nice that this site, Google Maps, and a few other things aren't blocked at my school. Every once in a while, YouTube works, but most of the time it doesn't.  :rolleyes:

My school only blocks porn and maybe Netflix. I think they also ban some social media sites.

You're lucky your school only blocks just that. A few years back, my district installed some filter that started automatically blocking random websites, yet it unblocked sites like Youtube and Twitter. It took them a while to correct this, but they finally did. Every now and then though, I run across a site that should not be blocked, half the time the reason is listed as "unknown".

Where is the jealous emoji?

Youtube videos must be approved, Customisation is banned, shopping and travel sites are banned. I'm surprised this forum isn't banned yet due to the unbanned sites being less than the banned.

Usually lunchtime on work days, and later at night before retiring for the evening.  Also early morning if I can spare the time.  Weekends are more random -- usually whenever I decide to check my email.

Usually everyday whenever I get a chance. I typically bounce back and forth between AARoads and City-Data. However, I don't always log in while I'm browsing the forum. I normally don't log in unless I intend to make a post...kinda like I'm doing now.
