What Thread Do You Go To First?

Some days I'm here on PPOT 3 or 4 times a day. Some days just once. I have fallen into a routine that I generally follow when I visit.
My first GO TO thread is always Random Transportation Pictures. There is always something interesting there.
Then I check for responses to any thread I've started.
Then any thread I've contributed to.
After that if I have time I browse for any threads that sound interesting.
Just Sayin'

Same here. I only click on about 1/3 of the topics. I will then look at any responses to threads I have posted in.

I used to be on PPOT all day long....was paid well for all my brilliant posts ....way back. Now I drop in via a phone and scan the first page...clicking on a few usually. Because I'm mobile, I don't click on music/pic threads all the time...just an occasional visit...but they are totally cool

First is always the tech section. I'm here first and foremost to help others with their car issues if I can.

I always go to Classifieds first to see if there is anything interesting and typically go to Classifieds 5 to 15 times a day. I miss the pre-bubble glory days of Classifieds. Everything else I just click on email links and if I happen to migrate from Classifieds to Technical to OT, I just scan to see if there is anything interesting and most times there is.

I go there a lot to read things that I haven't had happen to my car just to freak myself out.

I usually start at the top and check out interesting threads on my way down.

That's me, I usually scan top down to see if there's something new and interesting. You've got to be up on current events!
Once I've done that, I'll check things like Random pics, Random pics that you've taken, etc... I mostly stay on the first page unless there is an interesting thread and the board's busy. Then I'll go back a couple pages.

Yep. After I sold my 911, I stayed there for a while, but these days, I'm hardly ever over there.
Mostly if it's just a slow day in OT or I'm really bored.

I usually start at the top of OT, and click on threads that sound interesting, or anything started by Vash as they were all interesting.

I ALWAYS go to the Stijn thread, and add something and catch up. And I always go to Random pics to see what was new and add some more.

Then over to the Tech forum, and browse around and often throw in my 2 cents worth and experience from 24 years and counting of drive my 911. I regularly see things I did not know about, and I am still learning.

Then back to OT for any new content. Sometimes into PARF to see how the mud wrestling is going.

It helps to have three computers here at my home office, and just me to use them. I set up a project on the fastest computer, and let it churn, then play on OT until the next step in the project churning on the main computer. It has been running non stop on one project since Monday afternoon. It might be done later today.

The pic threads, then the movie thread, then the music thread then I click on anything that sounds interesting. With crappy weather here I spend way too much time in the house and clicking.

Tech first, Classified Parts and then here. Once a day is enough.
