    Most of the time, YES. But if it goes on for pages and pages, usually don't bother unless it is really interesting. Shame on me, but that includes pictures of quilts or projects too. Honestly, everything posted deserves recognition, but when it gets to 4 pages +, I can't imagine what I could say to add anything! If I didn't shorten up on my time here somehow, I'd never get any quilting done!

    I'm addicted to everything. I try to read as much of topics that interest me. And I enjoy looking at all the pictures too. Oh and one more thing - the buy/sell/trade/PIF areas have been fun too.

    I read less than I used to because there simply aren't enough hours in the day.

    I tend to read all the posts if it is really interesting or it is a subject I want to learn more about. I love reading different ideas and takes on a subject. However, some posts that take days of replys and go to 8-10 pages, I have a hard job getting thru all of it. I REALLY enjoyed the photos of everyone's quilting spaces/studios! I also love looking at peoples quilts. I also try to welcome most newbies to the board-the way I was made to feel welcome. And I wonder why I spend so much time here!!!

    I think that PHOTOS are my favorite section. I don't usually read past page 2 0r 3 if it gets long.

    I try to read the whole thread before I comment. I have to admit that if it's a really long thread I don't always read it all. But just to keep it interesting, I should mention that I read almost every entry in a 69 page thread the other day.

    Yes. When you don't read the whole topic you miss questions and answers already given and you ask the same question that has been asked and answer further down in the topic.

    Absolutely agree with this. If something interests me and especially if I want to ask a question, I read every post to see if the information is already there, for example regarding where to find a pattern. I think this is a courtesy to the other posters as well, otherwise it seems to me as if I'm ignoring them. ;)

    Not when they're as long as this one unless I'm really really interested. Although I must admit that Story Time has me reading every word. Sometimes laughing aloud. If you haven't read it, look it up. We're writing the world's greatest mystery novel ever written by a group of amatures. It's pretty funny and I don't think we're even staying in the same century sometimes. :lol: :lol: :lol: I forgot to tell you, you can add to the story too, anyone can. Just be sure and go to the last page.
