Default How Often Are You On RCU?

How often are you checking RCU for new posts? 5 times a day? Twice a year? Maybe once every 5 years? Or maybe your on RCU almost all the time, possibly signing in every 10 minutes.

I check about 3-4 times a day. I would rate myself as a obsessive RCer.

I've been away from RCU for almost a year, popping in every 6 months or so. Funny thing was though, I never signed out and I was still signed in after about 7 months the last time...[8D]

They were having server issues. For like 3 months the site would give me errors and even when it did work it wouldn't let you post..

I would say it depends on what trend you might found some interest in... some times once a day, once a week or so. Just depends on the vibe of the forum(s)

yea I remember that used to be super busy till then with a pile of regulars
you were lucky to get one post out of 20 attempts, and 98% of the time you couldn't reload the forum unless you cleared 4 certain cookies


Now we have maybe 20 or so regulars, and a few newbies, and the posts died down drastically to the point where some forums you are lucky to see one post in a month as most ppl moved to other places that have less site issues.

As for how often I look to see if new posts generally whenever I remember to. I'll usually flip through al the forums I post at in one go to see if there are new posts. Now if a thread I'm posting in seems active I'll check every few mins till it dies out or Foxy closes it(what he does to all the fun threads ).

I check in a couple times a day, although work has limited that a lot lately. Used to be on a fair bit more.

Goes to show how you need to deal with problems ASAP, it almost killed RCU. They should do something about this like a series of contests and promotions, get the traffic back to where it used to be.

I used to be on every 30 mins before the problem but now at most once a week.

On here too often. Two weeks of rain makes for a lot of boredom. Might need to buy an RC boat.
