Favorite Forums

What are your favorite forums to "tune in" when you come to DC? I always check "off topic" first, unless I'm looking for something specific, to catch up on what may be going on in everyone's lives. Then "ethnic".

I always check my User CP for activity in threads I have been participating in, then I hit the New Posts link to see what's new.

I do not check specific forums. I just scan the Power Users Page to see what topics are of interest in the entire site. The only time I specifically go to a forum is when I am starting a new thread.

I do something similar. I just click on New Posts and see activity since my last visit in all forums.

I, too, am a New Posts user. There are too many forums to even think of checking them individually!

I check my email first for updates on threads I am subscribed to, then I check out the links on the right of the screen to see anything else new. I also use the new posts link. GB, thanks for reminding me of the power users page!

Email subscriptions first and then the posts on the right of the page. Specific forums when I have a question or I start my own.

I go to "new posts" also. I usually find something very interesting in there. If I'm looking for something in particular, I may go to a definite item.
