Whats the first thing you do

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
when you log into TCS ?

I was thinking how I have definately got into a routine

1/ reply to PMs
2/ check & welcome New Cats on the Block
3/ a quick look into The Bridge to pay my respects
4/ into my own profile and check all posts I've made to see any updates
5/ check to see replies to threads I've started

then finally back to the home page to see Latest on our Forums - once I've done those things then I just bob about here and there - usually with my cup of coffee

just all part of my day now

Reply to my pm's

Go for updates in the Moderators Lounge

Visit the premier lounge

The main lounge

Fur pics

Check any threads i've posted in as well as my own.

Visit the bridge

Then hop into every forum along the way and back again

Read the list of threads in the Lounge and reply to ones that interest me. Then I go to IMO and if there is a topic there I am interested in I'll reply.

I don't often go to the forums where I'll read about dead or sick animals. Stuff like that really upsets me and makes me really sad, often times for weeks at a time. I just can't handle that

PMs are forwarded to my email account, so I check them out, along with any emails, before coming here.

I have speed dial set up on my browser so that one click takes me directly to IMO, where I read the new posts/threads, and respond if necessary.

After that, I can't say I have any routine. I browse through some of the other forums, in no special order, and read the threads that catch my eye, or which I've been following. Only then do I go to "new posts", to see if I've missed something.

Start the Daily Thread.
View New Posts to see what's been up since I was around last.
Go to IMO to see who Bruce picked a fight with last night.
post #9 of 23
I don't usually get pm's so I don't have to check them

I hop into the lounge and check to see what has been happening there.

Go to IMO and read and sometimes post.

surf the other forums and then head back to the lounge
post #10 of 23
I usually reply to any pm's I might have, then I reply to the Daily thread, then I usually check Crossing the Bridge out. It is sad there sometimes, but I want anyone there that is sad to know that I am thinking about them.

Then I usually just plunder through the threads.

Reply to PMs
If it is the morning, check the daily thread
Check the sig forum for updates
click on random threads that catch my attention on the main forum page
Then the PL & CL
Then IMO
Then flick through the rest of the forums that I usually go to (health, grooming etc- the ones where I can be useful instead of just reading)
Then I may read other forums while going back through the others during the day.

Me, too!!
post #15 of 23
First I usually come to the lounge.....

Then the other animals forum

Then the IMO forum

I try to welcome new members too but I havn't been as good about that lately.

I don't go into the health, rainbow bridge, or stray and ferals forum that often because it upsets me.

1. check my subscribed threads, post replies if necessary
2. check any PMs
3. check new posts
this repeats until there's nothing else left - usually takes me a couple of hours, with my dial-up!
if i'm at school or the library, i'll look at fur pix, too!

I just wander around here and there. Mostly here. I went to the Bridge a few times last week. Then I cried for about 20 minutes, and I can't seem to go back in there right now. Anyone who has a posting in there, I do care! I just can't take it.
post #18 of 23
PM's pop up when I log on, but I don't get very many...

The first place I go is to the Health and Nutrition forum. I always check if there's anyone posting about feline renal failure, which I feel is my calling in life! I like to try to help and give support, because it's one thing that I know lots about...

From there I go to PL and CL to check out the most recent posts. I love to look at Fur Pics. I always go to the Bridge forum before I'm done for the day. I tend to be more of a lurker than a poster. Certainly not a thread starter!!!

I check PMs and I usually just hang in the cat lounge.
post #20 of 23
If I have any new PM's I'll check and usually respond then it's off to The Cat Lounge and its sub-forums (Fur Pics, Caption This Pic, and Paws and Reflect) and I look for any new threads or new posts in threads I've been following. Once in a while I'll go to New Cats on the Block and about once ever 2 weeks the last thing I do is deposit my points in the bank.
post #21 of 23
1. Read PL
2. Read CL
3. Post on New cat
4. Read the other forums
post #22 of 23
1. Reply to PM's
2. Check my threads to see if anyone replied.
3. Check out Pregnant cats and kitten forum
4. Check out the lounge
5. Look at all the new pics in Fur pictures forum
6. Then I just bounce around to where ever until soemthing catches my eye.
