    What do you do when you first log onto TerraForums? Have a routine? Feel compelled to read all new posts? Just skim around to see what interests you? Search for specific topics?

    Let us know what you do at TF. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    When I login, if I have pms, I will check those first. Other than that, I only check the sundew forums, trading forum, sometimes gen discussion and nep forums and sometimes sarrencia or vft.

    Notems stands for private messages...not that other thing, i'ma guy :P

    Check my PMs first (when there are any,) there's a box that pops up and everything- how could I resist? Though I usually hit "cancel" on the first box and go to my inbox manually for some reason... lol After that it's generally general discussion and then checking all around to see what's new and interesting.

    I get all the latest dirt (find out who's been naughty and who's been nice) in the admin forum.

    I normally click on New Posts first, but if there is a new PM, it kinda hits you between the eyes. Sometimes I don't have time to do much with the new posts and have to shut down. So when I pick it up again, that which had been new, disappears. Then I have to go through the individual forums. I also like to check out what my friends have written, especially when someone like Tamlin is the last replier. He has thise E.F. Hutton thing: "When Tamlin speaks, everybody listens". As PAK has probably noticed, I also check out the birthdays, as well as new registrants. I may have something in common with him or her, like Long Island or Buffalo or SE PA.

    I always hit new posts and see what looks interesting, unless that PM pop ups in the middle of the screen.

    This would not normally be a post I would open but since it had that crazy guys name in the title I had to look. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    check and answer pms first but thats only once or twice a week so i didnt vote that.

    i check the individual forums first in this order if there have been new posts: Utrics, Neps, General, Trade.....from tehre it depends on where i have posted something recently.
