How much time do you spend on the forum?

I used to spend a lot of time on a couple of racing forums back in the 90`s early 2000`s. I mean, I was on there almost 24-7.
After I stopped racing in 2003 I never went back to those forums. I don`t even know if they are still active today.

Too much, considering most of my activity is telling people to scan for codes using INPA/etc.

I dont get to into all the specs and such of cars nowadays so I prefer the company of you heathens.
Oddly enough, I used to spend much more time on OT last year and work was just as busy. Not sure where the shift happened but maybe b/c its been less populated and active of recent.

It's less and less now that I've found most of the parts that I was needing for my build, and I learn more and more about the car itself.

I'd say no more than an hour a day, down from probably 5+ hours a day looking for parts and researching.

It depends how busy I am at work. Sometimes I can go for weeks without posting. I do keep the site open all day, and pop in and read when I can. I find myself reading less of the threads though. A lot have become ho-hum topics.

I do my obligatory spam search and destroy in the early morning hours while having my coffee.

Like most have mentioned, everyone has different reasons why they are not more active on the forum.

For instance, I was just talking to my oldest son the other day about the forum (that's how I came up with this thread ) and I mentioned to him that I had not seen him on the forum in a while, and he said that lately there's not much going on in the e90 section of the forum that interests him so he and his cousin have been spending more time on another forum.

They're in their mid to late 30s and used to be active on here for a few years. Not in the OT section, mostly in the tunning, modding, coding, etc. section of the forum.
He said that with the newer car platforms things have changed and that the other forum has more members actively involved in their platforms.
