How I've used of my time
« on: March 26, 2010, 02:53:14 PM »
I noticed that I registered with the forum on the 11th last year, so it's been just over a year. Hurray, I thought. So I wondered how much of that year had actually been on the forums. My counter says my total time logged into the forums is just shy of 24 days, roughly 574 hours.

So I did a little math, accounted for the two weeks over a full year, and discovered that I've spent 6% of the last 12 months on this forum. That seems a little insane.

Now I'm curious about how much time I spend actually playing RPGs.

52 weeks in a year and I play two games a week (104 games) each of which is normally between 3 and 5 hours (312 to 520 hours). I have to miss or cancel at least once a month (lowers numbers to 286 to 476 hours). Even accounting for longer running games, I've probably spent more time on the forum than actually playing.

Hey, you've got .3% of a year on here yourself. Your legally drunk on the RPPR forum, Jon.

How much of that time were you actually on the forums though? I leave the forums up when I'm teaching, reading, etc. So that I've probably spent less than 1/4, maybe less than 1/8 of the time that the forums says I've been logged on for.

According to my calculations and experiments from refreshing before and after breaks, the forum timer, at least on my web-browser, doesn't count if you are unactive for over 14 mins.

Apparently I registered about a week after my 19th birthday, and I mostly post around 1 AM.  Huh.
