    Hey guysy I was wondering last night about how much time you guys spend on the site, wheter its posting/chat/upkeep. I know I probally spend between 1-3 hours a day, maybe more since I check it probally 5-10 a day.

    So how much time do you put into it, I dare ask this question to 'Da Posting King. How many of your wives have been ready to shoot your computers for spending too much time on here? :p My wife makes fun of us for having the user names & such, anyone else get greif?

    I figured this would eb a good "Rainy Day" topic.

    I think it's pretty well covered 24hrs between all the Development Team. I personally spend a couple of hrs/day online checking the forums, etc. :)

    Since our conception 2 weeks ago, I've prolly spent on avg 4 hours/day doing behind the scenes stuff. Logos, postings, letters, phone calls, etc... And I have THE coolest wife in the world. She knows how passionate I am about the sport, and how much I enjoy doing it on the web, and thinks that what we've got here is great. She does think that we're worse than a buncha old ladies on bingo night, but she enjoys that fact that I'm doing something I love.

    I'm in total awe (as are the rest of us) that you guys enjoy this place as much as we do. Makes all the time and energy we put in, 100% worth it. We couldn't have pulled this off without guys, and that's a fact.

    I did have to quit the arcade cold turkey about addictive.

    fishinchick The 'Chick!!!!

    Shawn, tell the WHOLE story! I come over there and you are checking your email and posts. Then you are off the computer for no more than a half hour, and you're back on it again. "I gotta check my email"... he says. :eek: :p

    You don't know the half of it. :D

    LOL! I totally missed this comment, Shake! Too funny! True, but funny! :D :D

    By the way, I just thought up a new section to add to the message boards. You could make up a support group section for the wives who like fishing, but aren't necessarily as COMMITTED to it as the hubbys. We could have support group chats on weekends when the guys are GONE! ;)

    too much time yet it seems it's never enough. I'd estimate on average I spend about 5 hours a day to this point. Lots of stuff going on behind the scenes that you aren't even aware of (yet) ;)

    hmmmm....i gotta say, im really addicted to this site, gfo, and ohfishing. In my opinion they are all great sites and I LOVE EM!!!

    I spend about 1 or 2 hours a day. Yikes!

    My wife is real laid back and I think shes happy that i look at fishing related sites and not porn. :eek: :p She likes her "reality tv", and I get the internet! I really cant stand most of whats on tv, American Idol, the swan, real world, etc..... to me thats all useless!! (But if she wants to watch it, its fine with me.) Now the history channel, now THATS entertainment!! (Or as my wife calls it, the "Hitler Channel")

    Ive learned a ton, you guys dont even realize, the sum of all the discussions, etc.... you cant learn this stuff anywhere else! No book has the information that comes out through hundreds of fishermen chit chatting about the sport/hobby we all love.

    And what i like is not so much the hot locations or lures but the general methods and thinking involved in fishing. (Dont give me a fish, let me learn how to find and catch them on my own, etc.)

    Catch yas on the flip side.... ;)

    UFM82 The one others want to be

    Being in the business I am in, I have dead time at work. I get on here when things are slow and surf through the posts. I respond to some if I have a usefull comment or a good zinger I can add. I would be afraid to estimate total time here. :eek:

    On the other hand, I really don't do much at night at home. I'll look before I go to bed, but my creative juices aren't flowing then and I just lurk a bit and leave.


    Yes, the place is addictive. I am waiting for the fishing to really get going so I can read something different soon though!!!

    WOW!!!...This thread got me curious, so I looked at a few random members amount of time spent in the arcade...most I've seen (so far) is around 600 minutes for a single member...Divide that by 60 = 10 HOURS OF GAMING!!! I think it's time we add a disclaimer to the arcade stating "OGF is not responsible for broken marriages, lost jobs, or finger sprains".

    Hello, My name is ShakeDown, and I'm addicted to beatin on penguins.
  13. The hitler channel.. true

    You gotta love that show with the drill sergeant from full metal jacket. Nothing like wasting some watermelons with a .50 caliber. :D

    Id say I spend about a total of 2 to 3 hours a day but it is all when I am at work during slow times. When I get home I got dial up and too much work and stuff to do at home so mainly when I am at work and it is a slow day you will find me on hear.

    I LOVE THE Arcade. I love hiting pinguins and looseing money on poker!
    Smashing Rabits is fun as well! ! !
  15. I have had to cut back a bit on my time spent on the site because, dare I say, work comes first.;)

    But I have to agree with Shakedown on the arcade. I am quitting that because it is extremely addictive.

    I would say that I may spend less than an hour now a day on the site. But it is scattered throughout the day.
  16. I would post of this but sorry guys gotta go bowling (arcade style)
    see ya

    I guess I'll check into this arcade place :D You all probably think I'm Joshin ya, but I haven't even looked into that area. I KNOW what will happen. Me and my wife used to play Tetrius, pacman, frogger etc. until 3-4 in the morning :eek: THE CATKING !!!
  20. I'd say, I spend 3-5 hours a day here, but not all at once. I check in, post stuff, go cover something at work, come back, check in, etc. At home, I usually am on for a couple hours before nite-nite.
