    Same as Chary, I usually have the site open 24/7.

    Since I work from home, I usually have 3 PCs running with 5 monitors total, and at least one of them will always have GBATemp as the active page somewhere, usually the shitbox with another tab open on the general forums for browsing.

    Same as Chary... do you even pay your electrical consumption? Is just that I can't believe that you do have at least one computer turned on 24/7

    It's open most of the day but mainly so I can respond to Pokemon requests, without that, I wouldn't even have the site open, so an estimate of my hours doesn't matter, if anything I'd hate myself for knowing that number because that implies I like this forum more than I actually do.

    I mean, I own a home and make enough money to support myself, my fiancee, and a couple of pets sooo...not really that hard to believe? I currently manage the US side of 7 (soon to be 8) separate, quite successful websites for a company in the UK, letting a few PCs site idle for a few hours overnight isn't really that much of a stretch.

    Plus I get to write off a lot of my bills at tax time since I have a home office :P

    I didn't meant it in that way. But okay, thanks for letting me know.
    Again, I just can't believe that you do have GBATEMP running on one computer all the day, all days. That's all.

    I honestly am baffled as to how you weren't suspended for all of the necros...

    Oof..

    As for how often I'm here? Too much. I heed a break, but I can't announce it, and then nobody would notice anyways.

    Cant tell. I just received two warnings when I should have got at least 5 more.
    Oh, don't say that. We're a big family here on the 'Temp :wub:

    I always have this site open in a tab, and I pop in periodically to check things. It's not often I spend extended amounts of time browsing, though.

    I only pop on to look at the Upcoming News especially when it comes to Homebrew and the Nintendo Switch. I check literally 3 times each day.

    I enjoy the news posted here a lot, so a few hours for sure :D

    That's sad.

    Just as long as it takes to ruin a random person's day. Yes, I have other life goals as well, but having a routine is somewhat important to me.

    Jk, I check in two or three times a day to see if anything interesting happened in the scene.

    University and personal projects have kind of been eating into my time here, but I still spend a good long hour or two browsing the forums. If I'm not getting enough alerts, I'll just search around for threads that look interesting or something like that. It gives me something to do on my commute.

    Wait, I just noticed that! Is it because of all the shitpost necrobumps? Shitposts are overlooked, necrobumps are pardoned but shitpost necros are ban? Weird combo...

    I spend an unmeasurable amount of time here...
    If you want to know where most of my time is spent, I'm on Discord (specifically RiiConnect24's Discord) most of the time.

    I realised last night that I spend so much time in here that trash talking the community is something I take personal. Especially when it involves very specific bad apples.

    I don’t really count the time but I’m more like a frequent hit-and-runner nowadays, if that’s a thing.
