I know I recently registered here and so seem new to this place but I assure you I been hanging around for quite some time.

Anyways, my question is simply how many hours do you average a week at BC?

I am not even in the study hall (yet), but I spend at least 20 hours a week here. :thumbsup:

I think I may spend around 10 hours on BC each week... about 2 a day.

I would say that no matter how many hours one spends here on BC,

it is appreciated by many who gain either help or enjoyment from the members.


It may be a problem for some, however, if part of the time they spend on BC

is when they aren't on their computer!


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I used to spend a lot of time here. I then just stopped and starting living life away from this monitor.
Probably 5 hours a week give or take.

Hate to admit it, but I probably average 80+ hrs. a week.
Some days, I'll be on 19+ hrs.

I would guess I spend maybe about 40 hours a week if at all possible. If I could I would spend more time here.

I figure that I spend about five or six hours a day or night, this will change the end of August as I will be returning to college...again. Mondays and Wednesday I will be in classes from 9:00 till 4:00 in the afternoon for two classes and will have one class on Friday which will run four hours.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Depending on my schedule, I am usually here and active a minimum of 3 hours a day, and generally more.
Cheers,

178 hours in a 7 day week.

I'm probably signed in on the BC about half of that.
And active in one way or another about half of the signed on time.

Employing the "fingers & toes" abacus, that's about 45 hours?
The only easy day was yesterday.

according to my wife far to much :thumbsup:

but seriously at one time i was on here about 6 to 8 hrs a day
no so much time now as i am doing a malware removal course on another site and that takes up a lot of my spare time.
so now i tend to only get on for a couple of hours every few days. :flowers:
god my head hurts.
if you don't ask ,you don't know

I thought you worked. My head would go nuts after just 2 hours straight....

Just the thought of sitting that long makes me want to go exercise. ha ha

BC is a break for me so me spending 6 hours a day "here" (while surfing the web, watching the local online news because my TV wont pick up any channels, looking up stuff for work) I login as soon as I open my browser, since BC is my homepage. You have no idea how light the conversations and help are here until you spend a day at work with me (at least here if someone asks a question I can look it up, there i cant)

so approx 40hrs a week give or take 20 hrs (some weeks Im high some weeks I'm low)
