No fixed habits. It depends on the e-mail notifications, on my mood, on the things that interest me on that day and on what happened/was read or written the day before.

I always log in, open the web cams, minimize them to see what is going on at the waterholes every now and then, then I open e-mail notifications, read what's new on those threads, then I go to view active topics, but also spend most of my time on trip reports (I am hooked on trip reports!), then I log out again when I am finished. :)

:lol: @ Brummie. You learn over the years. Well, sometimes. I have the doubtful distinction of messing up my antelope. First the Springbok, then the sable and the roan which I put in one herd and last but not least the Red Hartebeest I seem to have found in KNP in December. :redface: Thankfully there's always somebody to correct me. :lol:

:lol: Oh, it stirred enough interesting conversation when it happened. Some of which left me quite :redface: and some really :evil:

Nah, that's from the past. I now know better, so....

NEXT..... :lol:

i always
1. open up the webcams
2. log into forums
3. "view posts"
and from there i usually check what new topics have been added.

Brummie, great to see you Brumming around again :D I hope that we see a lot more of you.

I open my emails, once I have checked anything work related I go onto the forum. I then scan the "latest postings" and go into what holds my interest.

Sometimes at work, I go on as a guest. If there is something really important I will log on and post. Our work computer is a bit slow though and it is frustrating waiting for a response.

first, I read all the posts I have received notifications and there is a lot... for me :shock:
loging automatic... so I'm always login
then go to see if I have received all the notifications :evil:
then, if I have time enough (I need so much time to read, understand the (new) subjets etc... :redface: ), go to active topics :wink:

As of a few minutes ago, Wed 3:50 pm, there was only 1 page ( 23 posts) under new posts.
I would love to be able to read all of a day's new posts, even the next day or so, before they go under their subject headings.
Is it possible to have the posts day by day for a week or so and then I could catch up with days i had to miss?
I think there must be others who like "NEW POSTS", as well as me. :pray: :roll: :doh:

Normally I will browse as a guest, if I see something interesting I will log in and post. I have been logged in for an hour or so. I have spent a lot of time reading the "complaint posts", that said I was very surprised to find such vitriol on the forum.
I really enjoy this forum, being a noob I read mostly and learn from the others. :thumbs_up:

I rather prefer to visit the general posts, because we can share our day to day activities in that section.

I usually first follow a link from an email to a topic I need to reply on and then head off to view new topics and post in whatever catches my interest :D
