    What was the longest amount of time you spent on a forum without getting off the computer?

    The longest I stayed was 10 hours in a row on adminbb. I believe that was the day we were changing hosts and making major changes.

    Maybe 5 hours but even then, I probably switched to another forum/website/application in that time.

    Not more than 2-3 hours n any of the forum. I usually get fed up early if i use one site continuously for long time and thats the only reason for not staying for too long on any of the forum.

    Its not being the case that i don't like to stay on forums!, its with every thing i do on my computer. I can't do any monotonous job for long time on my PC, be it browsing sites, foruming or playing games. I like outdoor activities more than i like indoor activities!

    Hmmm, all I can really say is way too long.
    I think when I was adminning my first forum back in 2005, I would sometimes, on weekends spend all day on it and other forums (for advertising).
    I was insane. Sure couldn't keep those hours these days! Eeeeeeeek.

    Well when you first start a forum, many webmasters tend to spend a long time on it within the first month just bettering it.

    Fair enough, in my experience however, I was keeping crazy online hours back in my school days for two years with one of my forums. Sure, it was successful. But I couldn't repeat it.

    The longest I can recall may very well be something like 8 hours (all my internet time) modding, tweaking & posting, etc.

    I don't really know to tell you the truth. I spend enough time browsing forums, replying to content, adding new threads. I really don't have a set amount of hours that I'm online doing things.

    I'm connect 8-5 through the week, then I'll get on after work and off and on throughout the weekend. I've literally gotten up at 8am, and been on the computer working on either my forums or client forums until 9-10pm at night.

    I'm also connected via my phone 24/7, so technocracy I'm still online.

    I often leave my PC on and stay logged into my forums for many days (and weeks) does that count? LOL Most time I have physically stayed on a forum? I was sick one of my off days and stayed on my forum posting for about 12 hours once, I think I posted nearly 1500 new topics that day, LOL.

    I've used tapatalk for years, I don't think forumrunner will ever be updated again :p
