    I didn't manage to get on here yesterday and already there are 4 pages of posts to catch up on, three pages on cat chat. lol

    How often do you get on here and if you miss a day or even longer do you manage to catch up?

    Good job I don't go off for weeks I would never catch up, good to have such a busy forum though, at least it never gets boring.

    If I need to catch up, I hover over the new threads and read the first line or two. If I like what I see, I'll open it up and read through.

    If I don't, I move on to the next one and do the same again. :)

    It's much quicker than going through EVERY thread.

    I don't - if it's not on the first page I usually give up.

    I usually only use general chat so it's usually only this I need to catch up on

    I wasn't on here yesterday either

    I never bother trying to 'catch up' I just pick up from the most recent threads on the day I log in and go from there - but then I always miss the dramatics and never know what's going on, so may be I should make more of an effort ;)

    Simple. Any thread which has been authored by Zaros I don't give it the light of day.

    If he thinks I'm reading that sh1t, he can think again! :yesnod:

    I tend to skim over post titles and read a couple that catch my eye....

    Went away to do a full day (7-7) at work last week, got back on here and almost died looking at the number of my "unread posts" in my absence :D
