Sometimes when you post in this forum (and in others too), you find that someone posted in a few bit seconds before yours, better known as ninja'd. How do you react to this, how often you get ninja'd and where?

Most of my reactions to being ninja'd are logged in the Ban the User Above You thread. More ninja'ing happens there than in the whole forum.

Being ninja'd is awful, but if you are too slow it happens. I have had it happen countless times, but when it does I usually just edit or delete my post!

I really hate being ninja'd whenever I'm at a game thread typing a post for one user, or when I'm arguing with someone and taking a load of my time typing my post to counterargue.

I have never been Ninja'd of PC before, but I have been on other forums that I had been on. Yes it is annoying but if it happens to me
I will just come back later and post my post when it is quieter in the thread I want to post in.

Happens a lot to me on Marriland & on Bulbarden - not so much here on PokeCommunity, playing some of the games there.

Really annoying when it happens, when it does happen to me I try not to let it get to me or become frustrated or angry, I just smile and edit my post to match the previous reply.

I've been ninja'd a few times. But it rarely affects what I had written down. Most that happens is a slight edit.

It happened to me only in Forum Games, where I have to edit my post. But I've been told I ninja way more than I get ninja.

I get ninja'd quite often, usually in Forum Games/Pokemon Trivia or when answering questions in the Pokemon gaming Q&A threads.

I try and post as quickly to things as possible and I read other posts to make sure I'm not totally copying people.

But on the other hand I'll reword someone else's answer or quote it if I agree with it lol.

I've been ninja'd a lot, especially in Forum Games.
Mostly i just edit it with the thought: "For crying out loud im being ninja'd again"

I don't play Forum Games so being ninja'd doesn't affect me in any serious way, but it does happen ALL the time, I'm a very slow typist and take time to compose thoughts so I run the risk of being ninja'd everywhere, I remember once in the PC Skype chat I got ninja'd and then ninja'd again when the guy who ninja'd me was faster at pointing it out! Pfffft Nothing happens when I get ninja'd, it's just funny.

I'm also on my phone often where posts can take 15-30min to write so expect many ninjas to be slipping past this Samurai warrior and slitting his throat Blood gurgling everywhere, vision fading, ughhhhh...

I've only been ninjask'd once in the forums, and that was during the Egg Swap a few weeks ago... It was a simple fix, however. I just edited my post to say 'Confirmed swap with (whoever it was) • #(their Egg Swap contestant number). I was also ninjask'd a few times when chatting during the Anime Movie Marathon, but I couldn't fix those...

Usually I'm the one being Ninja'd myself and it's usually in Forum Games, but I'm not really bothered by being ninja'd. I didn't know what ninja'ing was until I joined PC and I used to really care, but now not so much. Someone just beat me to what I was gonna say or post is all.

I've been ninja'd a heap of times before...on forum games, usually.
It always happens when I edit typos

I've been ninja'd a few times over the last little while by RHCP over in Pokemon General, where we both go to deal with an issue at the same time, and neither of us sees the other one going to fix it. Now, any time both of us are online at the same time, I make sure to double and triple refresh the page to make sure that I don't get ninja'd, haha.

I get ninja'd all the time! Especially a couple of months back in D&D when it was super active, and I'd be making multiple multi-hundred word posts simultaneously, just going back and forth - sooner or later (but mostly sooner) it was gonna happen XD

I get annoyed when I'm ninja'd. I put in "Accelgor'd" as a way of saying that I got ninja'd to spice things up.

I don't really cared if I get ninja'd as long as my post isn't in Forum Games.

My record is like getting ninja'd twice by the same person in two different threads in about one minute of time difference. That kinda pissed me off.

But normally I don't get ninja'd too often.

That sometimes happens but not often. Pretty sure that I'm usually the one doing the ninja'ing, baha. But I have been ninja'd a few times before, mostly by ZachLMedia nowadays!

I usually just edit the post and sometimes point out that I've got ninjasked, and it happened mostly on Forum Games. I could prevent it from happening to me (and being ninjaing people) if I see that the other users visit the threads, except if I'm caught on the tension of the Forum Games or I'm a tad bit late.
