I don't remember a thread like this being made. If it is already, please close it.
How much time do you usually spend on PC?
Is PC sometimes considered as the activity that you do the most?

For me, I spend 3 or more hours on school days and 5 or more on week-ends.
PC is the activity that I do the most.
Go on guys~

These days, probably an hour tops a day. A few more if something exciting's going on. I lurk around other websites more than I stay here, but I'll always consider this place my Internet home because I actually have an account and post here. (Also, been here almost 9 years now.)

Back in the past, I was here even more. 3+ hours wouldn't have been unusual. There was more for me to do back then, and I was more interested in this place in general.

Let's see.

Between math class & psychology: 45 min to 1 hour
Lunch break: 1 hour to 2 hours.
During Graphic Design class (depends on workload): 2 hours
At home: 4-5 hours (mostly spent at night)

So...in a weekday total: 7-10 hours a day? Holy crap I really need to tone it down a notch. I probably spend less hours on PC, because of um...NASCAR and ponies and IRL stuff. lol, but I majorly spend the most time during weekdays...when I'm supposed to be studying and doing my homework.

I probably have spent a lot more back in 2011. xD

I spend around 10 hours a day on weekends (around 3-4 hours on weekdays) on PokeCommunity, and I only registered two days ago... that being said, it's in conjunction with places like Pokemon Showdown, IRC or Smogon forums, so it's not exclusively PC.

I spend an hour to two hours on weekdays here when waking up, followed by at least an hour after I get home from school, plus 2-3 hours after dinner and before bed.. so on weekdays at least 4-6 hours on weekdays. On weekends, it's at least 5-6 hours both days xD

    Lately, it's been about five hours a day. I wasn't here for two years, though, and before that, it was ten hours a day.

    Pretty bad.

    I've been on here non-stop since I joined. xD To be fair, I already spent a lot of time on social media sites and surfing the web, so this is just another page open in the background... but I'm definitely putting my time in wandering the forums, even if I don't post much.

      When I'm properly active, I'm here as constantly as possible. Any time that's not sleeping, working, or commuting, I have got a PC tab open and refreshed every ten minutes max. Because I like to keep up with what's going on and be immediately aware of any changes in threads/sections/blogs I happen to be watching.

      I have severe activity dropoffs once in a while though. Mainly when nothing is really tying me to PC. And then I disappear for weeks or months. Not years anymore though, so that's better lol

        I used to spend way more time on here than any mortal should. Been cutting back though since I havent talked to any acquaintances on here for some time now.

        I'm on here whenever I'm at home on the computer. When I have free time, I usually spend it on here.

            About 4 hours a day on school day as I have to take my daughter to school and home. 6 hours on no school days. so 10 hours a week I guess.

            I spend way too much time here. Especially because I have holidays, so I spend most of my day here, or PS or the irc.

              1 hour or nothing during the weekdays, the whole day on the weekends. I've been very inactive lately, not sure why, but I can't seem to find the inspiration to post.

              A lot! While all of it may not be spend on-site, like posting, VM'ing people and stuff, I also spend a lot of the time chatting on the IRC, or just generally "hanging out" with some of the people I know from here. I'm also a bit on the battle server, but not much activity from me over there.

              All in all, I spend waaay too much time on PC. But then again, I live in a ghost town :p

                I'll get on like maybe once during lunch for a few minutes, once when I get home, and once before I go to bed to see if there are any interesting threads. Never been on the IRC, oddly enough. Every time I think about it, I get distracted. That'd probably make my usage triple.

                I spend way too much time on P.C. I spend around 1 hour each visit, I check in 6-7 times every day. Between PC and other PokéForums is how I spend most of my day. At least 12-15 hours a day I'm on different PokéForums.

                  I used to spend hours here, like 3 years ago. But I realize that there is more to life than wasting a lot of time here(sorry! But I have to be honest). Also since PC can now be readily be accessed in tablets I have no need to worry about accessability.

                    Not that often... Maybe 1 hour a day cumulatively, including weekends. School all week and work all weekends literally gives me next to no free time -_-

                    The only reason I've been active the past couple of days is because I've been bed ridden with illness, ha

                    For 90 days, I've had this chrome add-on that counts my page visits. ;-; Yup. I have no life.

                    I can't pinpoint a specific number of hours I spend here, but I'm here a lot, either logged in, as an alt, or as a guest.

                    Ehhh, unless I've got a friend online I only spend around 20 minutes on here, looking for threads I haven't posted in. I always make an OVP run to check for the threads I haven't posted in, and then the daily chit chat (sometimes I like it in there, sometimes I don't), then I post in the LGBT club.

                    On a non-busy day, a good few hours at least. Replying to threads takes me about two - three hours so at least around that much a day! /addict
