this includes writing reviews, browsing the forum, posting in the forum, reading reviews, being a moderator, etc.

25-40 minutes for me.

More than 3 hours for more than 2 years.  This had a negative effect on me so lately I've been reducing it to 25-45 minutes a day... except when I'm at home and have nothing to do. Like today...

I'm laidoff so I spend an average of an hour or so here a day (some days more if I get into heavy resdearch mode though). When I find a job I imagine that will change.

2 - 3 hours. This could be after work or during lecture breaks at school...

And sometimes I review something!

...intervention time... for everyone.

For some the question should be:
How much time per day do you NOT spend at PA in average?

I am online most of the time because of my work. I spent the past three years doing a PhD, and at the beginning of this month I went back to my office job, which means I am in front of a computer for hours on end... and of course PA is the place I visit most often. For me, it's not only a site dedicated to the music I love, but also a place where I feel I have friends, and even more than that. Heart

I always log on from my work PC; generally I'm online for about 45 minutes or so before I start work & about the same at lunchtime - sometimes (such as now) I'l do a bit of a trawl after work too...

4 minutes per day, but a very efficient 4 minutes.

Actually there's a bit of truth in that.
Abstrakt's greatest addiction is not spending much time on the forum, as spending it in a traditional way. And that traditional way includes arriving over the Velvet Room, saying "Good Mourning".

Now, if BJ-1 is not around when he does that, he'll rarely stay longer than 30 minutes online.

Repeating this 6 times a day, in this way, brings him to the 2-3 hours he mentioned...

same here, my conflict over being "devoted" here started since early 2006 in my family! right now, my parents don't even think I'm doing anything else but "Prog-Archiving", even when I'm not, actually, on PA. plus, all my irresponsible/lazy actions are reasoned in their heads by progging so much, in this place.

(which is partially true Tongue)

"did you learned for the test tomorrow?! of course you didn't. the forum can't teach you Nietzsche!!"
"why doesn't your Czerny study sound perfectly accurate? you seem to be doing a flawless job typing reviews on the forum, without making mistakes!"
"you got a B?! well, thank God you got five shiny stars on PA, as a member"
"how about becoming a Brahms specialist and not just an Art Rock one, once and for all?!"

stuff like that LOL
