How do you use this board?

  1. Just curious about what makes someone motivated to post on the board.
    I have been posting for some time. I used to post under the screen name Hypoxic Pixel Eyes, but changed it after I moved from Texas to Maryland, and had forgotten my logon information and changing ISP's.
    I decided to use something I had created from a post titled "what would your name be if you were a porno star" that was created by rileycat in the "off topic" section.( it's too funny.......you should go check it out!).
    Anyhoo, after posting what I think is something that should draw some responses I get nothing. For instance< "any LPN's in the baltimore area?" should get more than a few responses, since obviousely there are more than a few. LPN's are generaly friendlier than those "other" nurses, so it's not an exclusionary thing.
    I find myself going back to other posts to edit them so I can free up space on the board(this board is excellent, and we should all do our part to keep it running smoothly). I realize that topic is a little dry, but it was intended that way to make it simple to respond to, with very little effort.
    So here is a simple poll that even the lurkers can participate in.
    •  
  2. Poll: I respond to posts.......

    • Never. I'm a "lurker" and only read posts.

      6.25% 1
    • When the title grabs me.

      18.75% 3
    • When I think I can contribute an organized thought to the topic.

      75.00% 12
    • Out of courtesy to someone that responds to mine.

      0% 0
    • Only to someone that I percieve as being in my peer group.

    I've just recently discovered these boards. I've been on the internet long enought to know proper nettiquite, yet I was compelled to jump right into posting here without the usual lurker period. I guess I feel I found some kindred spirits.


    My answer was (I think)
    C: I usually post when I feel I have something to contribute.
    But sometimes I post just to acknowlege something someone has said, positive or negative.

    I find myself reading the political faction of this board a lot. I am enjoying the articles that are frequently posted there. At this time, I am only a student, but I can clearly see the benefits of being informed.

    See ya later!
