    I didn’t vote in the poll bc there are really too many factors. Obviously, I post a lot so I’m not TOO discriminating when it comes to responses. In general I post anytime I have something to say. I’m more likely to post if it is something I’m particularly interested in, if it only has a few posts (if there are 4 pages of responses I kind of feel like… whats the point), if I “know” the bee who posted it, or if there is a poll. I don’t generally reply to posts that ask opinions to things that are linked to. If someone wants an opinion I appreciate them posting pictures rather than sending me off to 4 different websites.

    Okay, I think I voted for just about every choice in the poll. And that’s not helping anyone.

    I post when there are few replies because I like helping out other posters.

    I post when I know something on the subject and/or have something to say.

    Like Corgi, I usually don’t reply if I have to click on a link to see what they’re talking about, or even if people don’t embed their pics and just have the files linked at the bottom of the post. I am too lazy to click over somewhere else.

    I basically just comment when I have something to say. I don’t always have anything valuable to contribute.

    I also don’t read every post that I see. I skip over a lot of them that aren’t relevant to me (local boards that aren’t MY local board, baby boards, waiting boards, etc.)

    I don’t click any external links in posts, so I usually don’t post on any of those. Other than that, I don’t know that I have a posting tendency.

    I post for a lot of reasons.

    I post on decor and design because I love decor and design.

    I will post on emotional issues if I think I can give some sound advice.

    I post on rings and dresses that I find beautiful.

    And I will post on things that I want to know more about, happen to know a lot about or think should be bumped up for someone else to see/ comment on.

    I usually only respond if I can relate to the post. I like to read local boards and wedding related. Those are the posts I tend to comment on the most. Lately I’ve been getting really into the recap boards. I love seeing how everything comes together. I like posting on those, too.

    IDK, I post whenever I feel like it. There are about 5 bees that I like and I usually read what they have to say, I don’t respond to all their posts though.
