How many epicski forums do you look at?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

So I just counted and I think that there are something like 36 different forums here on EpicSki. Out of those 36 I regularly look at probably three or four of them. Whenever I come here I always check this one (General Discussion), and the Gear Discussion. I occasionally check the Resorts Conditions & Travel forum, and have used the Gear Swap and and EuroZone for specific questions that I have had. Aside from that, and a rare visit or two to the Racing/Big Mtn. Competition and Getting Together/Gatherings pages I basically ignore the other 29 topics. How many pages do you look at when you come here? Does anyone (mods don't count) read all of them?

Sincerely Yours,
Bored in August

Dear Bored In August,
I check the 'New Posts' option often, that way if I want to 'Internet Fight' my opponent is hopefully still engaged... nothing worse than internet bashing someone, then realizing the post is 8 months old, doh!

It is a buffet, take what you want, leave the rest.

And no, I don't look at all of them, most mods don't. We have sections that we keep an eye on. The "New Posts" button is my friend.

Hmmm... Never knew there was such a thing as a New Posts button. You learn something new every day!

I check my subscribed threads,then the new posts and then forage about for new interests. The same order nearly every time unless something on the front page catches my eye.

I pretty much exclusively used the Today's Posts link. That's how i read almost every other forum I read, too.

Hey New Posts button users: do you think it would be an improvement to have one added to the bottom of the page?

Two - "General" and "Resorts" and I just pick up the titles via the RSS feeds into my Mozilla toolbar. Very occasionally I'll go to the site and see all the new posts for the day.

I like the Padded Room. In the off-season, at least.

General, Ski Gear discussion, Family & kids thread, plus any threads that sound interesting. Giving your thread a good name is important for that impulse visit.

Yeah, me too. The User CP is handy, you don't have to look much to find what you were looking at before.

To directly answer the OP, I look at, and post in the following forums (not necessarily in order of frequency, (R) denotes rarely):

Supporter's lounge
P&HTs
Ski Gear Discussion
General Skiing Discussion
Community Announcements & Site Administration
Trip Reports
Gear Swap Buy & Sell

Backcountry & Crosscountry(R)
Food & Drink(R)
Tuning and Maintainence(R)
Ski Technique and Analysis(R)
Racing & Big Mountain Competitions(R)
Humor(R)
General Sports(R)
Major Team Sports(R)

So seven are in the more regular category, but since I look into things based on their thread titles after checking New Posts, there are many of the more obscure forums that I hit from time to time.

General Discussion and Resorts on a regular basis.
Eurozone and Equipment occasionally.

Every so often I'll take a look at Humor, Food, Cycling, and Golf.
post #16 of 26
User CP then New Posts, that's all there is to it. The only forum I choose independently occasionally is the race forum.
post #17 of 26
General Discussion (regularly)
Resorts & Travel

Gathering (occasionally in summer, more often in season)
ESA (same)

Euro Zone (when needed, usually in winter only)
Gear Discussion (not any more now that I have no more need for more gear)

Instruction (rarely)
Gear Swap (used to, not any more)

Thanks Pete! 40 years?! I've been here a week. Moved up here from my bay area birthplace as I've transferred to Sac State. Very much looking forward to travelling half the distance to go skiing!

Appreciate the warm welcome, here's to us having more knee-deep days this season than our quads can handle.

Whatever I find interesting through the New Posts search. Thumbing through a subforum is a rare occasion for me.
post #25 of 26
A lot
New Posts
General Forum
Sometimes
Race
Resorts & Travel
Euro (not much posting going on)
Gear
Backcountry

Others if I'm bored. Instruction forums are a little too technical for me.

I look at the initial epicski home page to see what posts are the most active at the time.

Then, my susbscribed threads.

Then new posts.
