How Much Time Do You Waste On A.net?

Mon Jul 18, 2011 3:51 pm

I am starting this post (because I'm bored) but also because I looked at my total number of posts and how many days I've been on a.net and it is almost the exact same! This will be my 1185th post, and this is my 1190th day on a.net, so I'm averaging .9958 posts a day. I'm gonna try and post 5 more times to get a perfect 1   I know some of yall are averaging 10 posts a day, so let's see who wastes the most life on a.net  

Bro tip: use http://www.timeanddate.com/date/duration.html for easier calculating

And, before anyone else does it:



yeah yeah, leave me alone... at least it wasn't another self gloss thread...

3.77 posts a day. Fairly reasonable I suppose.

This is my 3527th post in the 2769 days that I've been a member of this forum. I used to be much more active, but I've become more of a lurker again the last 2-3 years..

Anyways, my daily post count would be 1,27 posts/day if I calculated it correctly.

During regular work days or weekends, I spend about half an hour to 1 hour a day on A.net. That is reading forums, posting and looking at the newest photos.

I've posted 2029 times (including this one) in 1547 days, which is 1.31 post/day.

It's quite alright, I guess.

2586 days on a.net, this is my 6936th post, that makes 2.6 posts a day.

For me it varies a lot. When I came to a.net about 7 years ago I was only in the chat and looking at photos. Then I started uploading pictures, then I discovered the forum and started posting.... SOmetimes more sometimes less...

Average posting of 4.12/day over the 11 years here.

I often have A.net open as one of the many websites I regularly utilize at work, so can tab into it pretty easy to see what is happening. Also tend to check it once or so in the evening to see whats up and how some of my stared threads are going.

And the sad part is: I took a 1.5 year break in between... So that means a lot more posts per day during the rest

1829 posts in 1389 days, which comes out to 1.32 posts per day (That still reflects how often I posted as a new member- I've slowed down since). As for actual time, I'm usually on here for between 45 minutes and 2 hours a day.

I'd agree with you, but I have *1* more paper in my entire bachelor's degree left, and this website is preventing me from doing it. Not my procrastination, A.NET!!!

0.8 posts per day over nearly 6 years. However I don't think I posted a thing in the first year and would have only made 100 posts in the last 2 years.....so through my "active" period it would have been more like 1.6 posts per day.

I will have a look on Anet most days, so I guess 10 mins per day.....

I joined a.net exactly two years from yesterday

so 365 x 2 + 1 = 731 Days

This is going to be my 1,132th post so I'm averaging 1.549 post per day 


The first website I go to when I turn on my computer is either facebook or a.net.

Been here about 3,586 days (nearly 10 years) and this will be my 197th post, for an average of 0.06 posts per day. Is that good or bad? I spend more time here than that number indicates. I usually come once every other day (or less) and browse the Non-Av and Civil Av forums. I rarely have anything to say in Civil Av, but am able to gain a lot of information with one source. I post more in Non-Av, but rarely to never get involved in political (or other) arguments. I just don't see much point in getting so worked up over what someone else says on the internet, though I enjoy reading them. The occasional trainwrecks are the best.

Yeah, that was easy if you post all the time in the trip report forum: "thanks for sharing" in each and every trip report

I have been here for 2175 days and have (excluding this one) made 154 posts. Average of 0.07 per day!

In my defence I was a long time lurker on the forums (only making comments when they do count). I do however have Airliners.net as my homepage when I start up my computer if that helps!

I usually find it to be a useful diversion, so IMHO it's not time wasted.

While I'm not a prolific poster, A-net is the first thing I look at in the morning. While lot of people read the paper at breakfast I go onto A-net.

Let's see, I've been around for 6 years, 3 months, and 22 days, or 2305 days.

And yet, I seem to have only made 668 posts! That is terrible!  
Honestly, I read far more than I actually post on purpose. But for the sheer amount of time I spend on A.net, this is quite a pathetic number of posts. I should be ashamed of myself!
