When I come to archBoston, I ...

Just curious, when you come to this forum, do you read every post / thread since your last visit or just the past couple or just the topics you have a specific interest in?

I read every post, even the Manchester ones that I don't give a hoot about.

Re: When I come to archBoston, I ...

I scan through each post at least, and if I'm tight on time I'll just mark the Greater New England forum as read, but I like to scan through those, too.

I clicked "Only the topics I'm interested in" but to be honest that's about 90-95% of all the new posts.

Re: When I come to archBoston, I ...

I "read" each new post. By that I mean I on;y actually read what I'm interested in and skim the rest to make sure people aren't starting a flame war or something.

Re: When I come to archBoston, I ...

in the Greater New England folder, I generally read only threads about places I've spent significant time visiting. Providence and New Bedford especially, also Portsmouth and to some extent Worcester.

If people posted more about Lowell, I'd eagerly eat that up. Ditto for Newburyport, Gloucester, and Rockport, which I *never* see discussed here.

Re: When I come to archBoston, I ...

I'll read everything in the new developments forum, but I only check up on the others once every three or four visits. And I almost never go into the greater New England forum.

Well, I haven't been here long enough to develop a habit, but it usually depends on what kind of mood I'm in.

Re: When I come to archBoston, I ...

I head straight for the greater New England section for Portland related posts. Sometimes I do venture out into the other areas. I like keeping up to date with Boston related things but there is usually so much going on that I can't keep up.
