Well, I tried searching using many disserent phrases and came up with nothing. The question is, how often do you visit this forum? Are you Obsessed? Or are you just an occasional user. Vote in the poll!

I browse this forum quite a lot. I fall under the A Lot category. But then again, thats only because I am in High School on summer break. That will all change soon enough. What about you?

Not sure it ever made it into a poll, but there was an extensive thread on it a few months ago.

I pretty much always have a window with the MR forums open.

I voted obsessed, but only because I click "New Posts" and check the forum way more than 4 times a day. I wouldn't call myself obsessed.

2-4 times a day isn't a lot to me. It's a bad day where I barely had time to check the forums.

Geez, posting 2-4 times a day means it's a slow day for me.

macrumors forums -> new posts... spin...


I'm not sure why I do it either. I can be doing other things... its usually while I'm waiting for a render or other long processess to finish. Probably should go outside and visit with the world more. Or get more power. I mean powwwah.

My re-up per day increases near macworlds or other stevenotes too. You might catch me on irc around those events too.

I'm obsessed. Definitely. It'll pass at some point, like all my past obsessions. :D

The fact this poll is in the Community Discussion forum probably means you'll get more of the "2-4 times a day" and "obsessed" options. Most of all members who visit once a day or 2-4 times a week will not post in the Community forums nor know that it even exists. :)

I visit 2-4 times per day but it doesn't necessarily mean I'll post. Besides, some of those sessions are quite long yet relatively uneventful where I might leave a tab open with MR on it while doing other things.

Still, if I can maintain an average of over 10 posts per day over almost 2 & 1/2 years, I guess that betrays a certain level of obsession.

At the moment, I'm in a meh sort of phase due to my own life circumstances. However, as soon as the MacBook Pros get a bump, I'll be reading voraciously...

Oh, and if you have 'New Posts' as a keyboard shortcut, you're obsessed. ;)

I'd say I check the forums pretty obsessively, though I don't post very much as I don't own a mac yet, and I don't feel like I have a lot to contribute. Gotta love MacRumors, though :) Made a facebook friend because of it, ha!

Well, how about instead of thinking of it as "obsessed", think of it as "excessive".
