How many TR sub-forums do you follow regularly?

Sun Nov 11, 2012 12:22 am

Excluding the specialty and limited-access forums (Announcements, Bargain Basement, Hot Deals, R&P, Smoky Back Room), there are 22 sub-forums but I'm guessing I'm not the only person who can't follow all of them. Sure, I drop into the others from time to time, especially if an interesting question appears in the Hot Threads list on the front page, but in general I watch seven pretty closely.

Just curious how many the rest of you are into?

I just use the - view unread posts - at the main board index that shows everything not read and then list the topics. It's rarely more then one page and there might be 2 or 3 threads nowdays that I go into. Before it was more, but dont have the time any longer in that regard.

I just use the Hot Forum Threads section on the front page. Sometimes I'll bookmark a specific thread if there's something interesting going on. I also check on the Bargain Basement every couple weeks.

I use the "View active topics" link on the Index page, and have e-mail notification turned on for any threads I've posted in or find interesting.

I wouldn't say I "follow" any sub-forum. I just view active topics and pick topics that jump out at me and occasionally look back at my "read" topics to see anything new. I will say though that I rarely pop into the back porch or R&P...I come here to discuss and read about tech. If I want a good discussion I typically go to facebook and discuss it with people I know.
