I am making this thread because I have been running into a problem keeping up with responding in a timely manner on the threads that I like. I know
that this seems like a crazy topic that has no merit, but I truly want to improve the way I interact on ATS.
The main problem that I have is that I take the time to post on one thread, and in the time it takes to do so, I lose track of another thread that I
was engaged in. I look at my subscribed threads but I still tend to lose track of a conversation. I have a few questions for the members that I see on
alot of threads at a time. If you would please share some info with me to improve the speed in which I reply because I take interest in alot of
What is the proper amount of time to wait on a reply from a poster?...... I tend to wait a few minutes to see if any one wants to reply. If not I move
on. How long do you wait, or do you wait at all?
Is it considered rude to still talk of the same topic the following day on the thread?...... I see some posters complaining about quick replies. Not
often, but I see it.. I personally see the thread as permanent and I do not mind having a conversation lasting days at a time. Do you?
How many threads do you keep up with? I think that one of my problems is that I have too many subscribed threads? It is hard for me to choose which
ones to respond to.
As I spend more time(the girlfriend say too much time..lol..) on ATS I want to interact in a manner which serves my post better. I know that this
might seem like a waste of time to most members but I think that everybody here should at least want to better their experience.
This is not for flags or stars or any other thing other than information from the posters that I interact with. I am up for a while do to the extreme
weather and I do not see alot of traffic on ATS so I thought this was a good time to ask. I can multi-task so please do not call me slow,(I am sorry I
had to throw that in there because I seen it coming) So please if you have a tendency for hateful comments just click on another thread and do not
waste my time. If you feel that this was a waste of your time, then I apologize and may your ATS experience today be merry.
Oh, and one more thing, If nobody replies then I guess that the questions I asked are not a big issue. It is just that I have been wondering about a
few things and I thought I would throw it out there for a discussion.
