Shouldn't that be "2-4", as at the moment the only options are between 1-2 hours, 3-4 hours, but where does the 2-3 come in?

I usually spend 2-3 hours a day, sometimes more, on LQ because I have an increasing urge to learn as much as I can about Linux in as little time as possible! When I spend this amount of time on LQ, I am able to take in quite a lot of information, while not bogging myself down at the same time. Good poll btw

Well there is 1-2 which includes 1h. and 2hs. and everything in between. Since 2hs. is used in the 1-2, the next one is 3-4.
Actually, I did not give it much thought and it is not really worth a debate.

Lol don't worry I was just mentioning it as a small insignificant thingy-mabobby, but it was obvious what you meant your poll to read as. Maybe I'm just being picky?

P.S I chose 3-4 hours

I'll pick 3-4 hours too but sometimes I spend more time than that. I'm wondering what would our mods choose

Actually I would bet the mods spend less time than we think. They usually stick to the business of answering questions and responding to moderation actions. I have rarely seen moderators take part in the time-consuming discussions of General.

Anyway to answer the question, I used to spend a lot of time here but of late I have been busy so my time has been cut down and I just stick to business (non-General) and have not taken part in General discussions.

I put 1-2 but it's more like 2-3 or more. It's hard to say. My computer is on 24/7 and I always have a window open with LQ so I just get on off-and-on through-out the day.

I have to say though that reading/answering some of the post here get your looking into things you probably never would have, so it really expands your linux knowledge over a broad range.

mostly between 1 - 2 but sometimes more, and usually without logging in.
Depends on what I'm after, for instance recently I installed a FX 5200 vid card and spent ages here and at other sites, lurking around to see how others fared and trying to pick up tips on getting it right ......
but mostly lurking in the Mandriva forums and here in General and occasionally in Networking or Security.
I find the Security forum interesting and have learnt a lot just reading the posts, some of it is scary stuff.

going back to "lurker" mode
see ya

In the end it all comes to quality, not quantity.

Exactly. I can come for 5 minutes to take care of reported posts and not come back til another reported post. Some days I browse off and on all day to answer questions.

I would say 1-2 hours.
But that depends. There are times when I don't visit LQ for a week and there are times when I spend half a day in LQ.
