I`m set up to log in automatically - and of late have been taken straight to Chit Chat. Usually spend some time catching up with what the `mites are doing, then go to Board Index and browse new postings there. Problem is, I can`t bear not to know what has been said from beginning of topic so spend a long time catching up and end up out of time for participating! Can`t manage to read as many TRs as I would like, especially when I`ve been away for a while. There are so many different threads and topics on the forums that I could easily become confused and lost (or spend all day doing nothing else!). Have `enjoyed` (not always the right word) some very serious threads as well as the more light-hearted ones I tend to frequent more. When I first joined, it was the Webcams that I looked at most - then I became aware of the forums and took my first steps into `chatting` on the Internet. After that I was hooked !

I never go as guest - always log in under my user name. Why would you want to be in camera?
I usually look first at my posts, then to the active forum, then new posts, and then to see whose birthday it is - habit I suppose.
Strangely, I always use the click on the right that sends me to the last person's post on a thread and then backtrack from there, rather than the last place I read from. :hmz:

Interesting to see how others' routine differs. 8)

That's the best description Dotty! :clap: I also log in under my user name, then open all the notifications on my e-mail to see what happened since I logged out, then I view the active topics, and respond to new travel reports, because I am hooked on them. :dance:

I log in automatically then I go to "view your posts" then I go to "view new posts" if I see something that interests me I will comment, then I check whose birthday it is and then if I "know" the person I will send them a message, my favourite forum is KNP Camps and Roads

Up to now, I could never manage to log in automatically. In fact, I have to log in twice to be actually logged in. VERY frustrating, but as long as I can get in, I just carry on!

The web cams open automatically when my computer is switched on. Otherwise, like Oddesy I follow my email links and, occasionally, if time, my inclination.
