I've noticed that I've been getting on and reading reviews and checking the forums for new information on groups around 3-4 times a day.

So let's all figure out on a quantitative level how addicted we are to this website.
 
Also, this has been done before, but it was 8 years ago.

Used to be 8+ times a day.  Now I do other things, not guaranteed every day, so it's between twice a week and every other day...been drifting more towards twice a week lately.

Yeah, I usually just leave it open in another tab, and check occasionally to see if anything new is going on. I'll vote 5-7 because that's probably the most accurate

Oh, I thought I visited very often, but now I can say I only visit once a day.

I'm not sure the chessboard humour got through in my earlier post...

Varies depending on the day. I said 3-5 since it seems to be average, if I account for the days when I'm too busy to check and those when I'm taking lots of breaks between assignments and use it to clear my head.

Probably 5-7.  Maybe more if I'm feeling bored/melancholy.

Those of us that got it truly appreciated it, my friend! Subtle, sly and head-slappingly bad, but all good!

I only log in at full moon, because of my lunar powered laptop.

Don't you lose your "new messages" position if you stay with PA up all day?

Only weekdays I "only" view PA once a day (well, twice today since I came home early), but on weekends I look at it quite a few times throughout the day.

About 5 times but sometimes it's only for 5 minutes to see if something interesting happened.

I log on in the morning, check for any new threads, then keep an active session all day...I get emails when posts are made to threads I'm on so I bounce around all the time.  Shut it down then pop back in for a little fun reading before bed.  Yup.  Addicted.  Evil Smile
I'm using the chicken to measure it.
