How many times per day do you check the Brickset forum?

I don't even know if I can count as high as the number of times I stop in here. Curious about your habits!

    An alarming number of times

    I'd say probably around 5 to 10 times a day when I'm at home (like now) and upwards of 30 times a day when I am at work.

    I noticed a while back that the number of times I check the forums is directly tied to the amount of money I spend on Lego.

    I used to refresh constantly. And my corresponding monthly Lego costs were a little ...high.

    Now, just a few times a day. Know your triggers! That's the first step to handling your addiction. :)

    According to Brickset, I have joined on the May the 20th this year and I have about 1500 visits. So to now, on average I have visited about 10 times a day.

    But I check on Brickset whenever I have free time, even I do it on my phone!

    Love this @littletoki : "Know your triggers! That's the first step to handling your addiction."

    @ChanMcL - ooh, I just saw that Brickset provides that info. It says I have 1,632 visits, which seems kind of low! :)

    The forum only few times a day, the main site very often, except when it's busy at work.

    usually it's not that often but now with grab bags being cancelled, i'm on almost constantly hoping someone discovers whether or not lego will ever reinstate the program.

    This forum is my "top" default website that I look at when I have a free moment and I probably check in every hour or so (work permitting). It definitely adds up. I probably only check the main page once every 24-48 hours -- the news tends to hit the forums first :).

    Way too many times. It's my default place to visit when I have a lull in work and want a brief distraction.

    According to my wife. Too often.
    It is only 1:30PM here and I've been here at least 12 times today. But I was working on the Monthly Builder's Challenge, so my average is skewed. It's more like 6 times/day.
  • Penkid11Penkid11 Member Posts: 781
    4th time today... Usually I have a minimum of 10 times a day. Minimum...
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    Usually visit only once a day, but then I never really leave until bed time :)
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    @ACWWGal2011 Ack! I didn't realize grab bags were being discontinued. Another nice little unique bonus of the LEGO Store, down the tubes.

  • SquareSideSquareSide Member Posts: 170
    99 times it says since May28th when I joined. :) So prolly once a day at least.

    Today Brickset started coming up blocked at work. I guess someone in IT decided I should be more productive... in short, I am on here far too often

    @Huw, just so @Bumblepants can temprarily have fun with his IT guy, isn't there an alternative domain he could be using? ;op

  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Visits = 2,872
  • BrickarmorBrickarmor USAMember Posts: 1,257
    Morning, noon, and night.

    So that's, what, 3 times a day...?
  • kezkez United KingdomMember Posts: 821
    525 visits so far, I joined on June 17 2012, I also have been on it on my phone probably over 100 times not logged on my profile
  • rocaorocao Administrator Posts: 4,288
    I'm not sure what the trigger is to increment the "visits" number. I logged out and logged back in and it didn't increment. I loaded a different browser and it didn't increment. I cleared my cookies and it didn't increment.

    Suffice it to say that I've actually visited this site far more than what "visits" indicates.
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,702
    ^ Exactly right. I fear the 3,000 plus since March 2011 wouldn't touch the sides.
  • brickmaticbrickmatic Member Posts: 1,071
    I have 225 since March 2011. Clearly wrong.
  • aimlesspursuitsaimlesspursuits USMember Posts: 207
    Probably anywhere from 10 to 20 times a day so I guess I'm somewhat average to high. :)

    I'm glad to hear that the forum has become such an indispensible part of everyone's daily life :-) Who'd have thought when we launched it just last April...

    I told you it'd never catch on.

    Way too often. It's like a daily routine. Wake up, brush teeth, go on Brickset Forum, go on TnB, and Facebook. Get home, go on Brickset.

  • dougtsdougts Oregon, USAMember Posts: 4,128
    4/times per day on average over the last 18 months. Of course that doesn't account for the fact of leaving it open for hours at a time.
  • emmtwosixemmtwosix Member Posts: 78

    I'd say probably around 5 to 10 times a day when I'm at home (like now) and upwards of 30 times a day when I am at work.

    Ha! I love that it happens way more at work - I'm that way too...

    It's part of my morning ritual, open email, check fbtb, brickset, and the forum, then do some work (if there's time). ;-)

  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    @LegobrandonCP Are you saying you brush your teeth BEFORE going on Brickset? I wish I had as much self-control!
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,702
    ^ Lol. My phone is the first thing I reach for in the morning when waking up.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,834
    At least twice an hour on average. :)
  • sipmart242sipmart242 Member Posts: 41
    Wow I thought I was the only one who checked it that many times(10-?) I stay logged in most the time easy access on phone;)
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    I tend to check first thing in the morning, and then, like @Russell844, maybe twice an hour, depending on workload and family stuff.
  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,394
    20? 30? i just keep it open all day.
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Sometimes it's several times per day, other times it may be three days interval between checking.

    Don't be forgetting that guy called "LegoCoastGuard" who went on at you pretty much weekly for not adding one...
  • bricksanbricksan Member Posts: 566
    It's one most of the day because I work on the computer. All though not a post whore, I read it throughout the day just incase there is some news I've missed.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,796
    Once per day. It's just that my sessions last approx 16 hours.
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    My stats show, since April 2011 - 11,168 visits, anyone rival that??
  • CoolsplashCoolsplash Member Posts: 935
    Once per day, session lasts for 2 hours :P
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    1,371,955 visits, and that was just yesterday.
  • MatthewMatthew Cheshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 3,734
    My profile shows only 2,144, I'm sure it's many more than that. I tend to open it in the morning and not close it till late afternoon, then the same from about 7 to midnight!
  • atxleeatxlee Member Posts: 145
    Definitely too often to be healthy for my wallet. littletoki might have given me a solution :-) It appears that the amount I spend on Lego trend with the number of visits to the forum.
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 2,752
    This is my fifth today.

    Oh wait, the "visits" thing is for how many times you visit the forum? I always thought it was for the number of visitors to your profile.

    Mine is 1,846. Not very accurate.

    Used to be more, less now, some threads just spiral off topic so far...
