    It varies for me but when I'm looking for a trade, it's many times a day. Perhaps enough that it interferes with work/home/driving/hygene... On a normal day 3-4 times is my average I'd guess. Do I have a problem (another problem I mean)? How about you crazy kids?

    Please don't let it interfere with driving. Seriously.

    As for me. I'll pop on here a bunch of times during the course of the day just to see if there's anything that catches me eye. I kind of use the forums as a reset button, something I do in between various work tasks. I rarely come on at all if I'm not working.

    That was a goof. I still bathe, drive without distraction and love my family time. Work does tend get the distracted me the most thiugh. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one!

    I work from home so I find myself on BA quite a bit during the day. Not that I'm complaining...

    Usually twice a day on weekdays. Once in the morning and after work. On the weekends or on free days I find myself on the site probably way too many times....

    Dude, if I'm drinking, I am all over the place :rolling_eyes:

    ...*ubiquitous*... :grimacing:

    Pretty much constantly for a couple hours in the time between dinner and bed. I'll also check in once or twice throughout the day if I have down time at work.

    Off and on depending on if I have BM's (beer mails and bowel movements) or, as is the case this month with Bruery Hoarders thread, between 9-10 am for the Anniversary Sale speculations.
    Once I'm home, I post on WBAYDN and troll other threads as time (and wife being out of the room) permits

    Definitely multiple times a day. Wish I could get behind the BA app, but it just doesn't flow well for me, so I find myself 75% of the time on my web browser on my phone anyway. Then when I'm at home, I have the comfort of checking in a couple times before bed with my laptop!

    Once or twice a day to check the forums, more if need to be to research individual beers or breweries.

    Too much...and not enough

    2-3 per night Mon-Thurs

    many, many times on weekends... (but ability to access and quantity/quality of posts impacted by scrutiny of wife/daughters...covert ops a must)

    Only been "here' since December...and the addictive component is significant

    much to love and learn...drink/music/food/philosophical ramblings of BA insanity

    much love and appreciation for it all

    When I'm at work, several times a day, for a few minutes at a time, killing the day in tiny increments.

    Well considering I am in the Liquor business, I use BA for info, news, and keeping a record of the beers I currently have to drink and/or age. I've also recently decided to take it upon myself to begin reviewing every brew I drink to create a immense catalog of information on beer. I also use it to see what others in the business are up to, and what the average consumer is enjoying. I also hope to soon begin networking and finding legitimate people to do mutually beneficial trades with. All that said I would say I shamelessly spend at the minimum an hour on BA per day.

    During work days I at least try to follow the trade forums. I'd say every other hour or so if time is given. Try to catch any beer release news. On a good day I will also follow the WBAYDN thread but I've been slacking there lately. Weekends is hit or miss. Always try to catch and contribute to NBS.

    If your in the liqueur business, i think its sensible or even responsible to spend extensive time on BA, not shameful. i've met many owners of beer stores who have no idea what they should and shouldn't be ordering. just my opinion. cheers.

    I don't know. I might come on here 3-4 times. I usually just look to see if I have any notifications, and I check to see if there are any new threads that I might want to read. As far as actual time goes, I doubt it's more than 15-20 mins most days.
