    Okay, I saw these questions in an edition of the ROM Hacking Newsletter, so I decided to create a poll to see what the results would be. So, please vote how many hours you hack in an average week, and post about it. I know every week is probably different for you, so just vote on your regular, average week.

    As for myself, I probably hack anywhere from 15 to 20 hours in my average week.

        ^ Lol.

        In a busy week, I hack about 10 hours a week. In a normal week, I hack about 16 hours a week. If I am on vacation, and I have nothing else to do, I hack around 30-32 hours.

            I have A-Map open on my computer all day. If I spend too much time hacking then I get bored of it and end up trying to force myself to hack which makes me want to hack less. x_x

            If I had to guess I'd say its around 15 hours of solid hacking.

              Kind of hard for me to say, since I don't really hack much for some reason! xD
              Since I'm more of a mapper, I usually spend at least an hour or so mapping something..if I'm in the mood, or feel creative. :/

                I hack at least 5 to 8 hours a day. I'm more like a NES Coder.

                  I dibble dabble... That sounded weird...

                  Anyway, seeing as I am hardly needed in hacks, and don't want my own, about 3 hours.

                    I used to hack about 5~6 before I got busy.

                    I try to spend at least an hour a day hacking.

                    Or at least trying to hack. >.<

                      I try to hack as much as I can, but...on a busy school week, I pull off about 5. On a non-busy school week, such as this one, I pull off maybe 10. On a holiday week, I can probably reach 15 or more. :\

                      Thrace, you're lucky. If I had Advance Map open the whole day, my parents would probably kill me for playing Pokemon so much.

                          Depends...Usually OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!!

                          ---

                          Ahem, on a serious note, If it's busy I can have as little as 2 ACTUAL hours of hacking(I'm on the comp all day, I just talk to people...a lot...). If I have a good free week I can hack up to 5 hours or real solid hacking, but it REALLY depends on my mood. If I can really get into hacking, I can hack up to 15-20 hours a week on a really perfect week. But yeah, it depends. In my answer for the RHN, I put my answer as how much time I was on the computer, which A-Map is usually open during, so get off my back, chappys.

                            Umm, I am like Thrace too. I open AM all day. But... I am just Hacker in Training,

                            so I there's no real purpose on it anyway.

                            My Parents don't even care if I Hack Pokemon Games.

                              Ahh.. About a year ago, I spent 30-35 hrs a week hacking. (No life then)

                              Now, if I'm concentrated on a decent hack that's progressing, about 7-15 hrs of Hardcore Hacking.

                                  I usually get in maybe 5 to 7 hours a week of pure hacking. Sometimes up to 12 if I'm lucky. Around holidays though, it sometimes gets as high as 20.

                                    Seeing as a whole week has only 144 hours, hacking for over 100 would leave one with only with (44/7 = 6x + 2 ) hours for EVERYTHING else.
                                    I myself spent like.. I dunno, depends on how much problems I encounter and my patience level. 50-60 hours is a good estimate.

                                      I would say.... around 30 hours a week. Depends on what hack I work on.
