Sometimes I post things and they get a TON of comments I didn't expect. Sometimes I post things that I think are really interesting and no one responds at all.

When do you usually comment? Do you wait until you have a question, or something particularly pithy to say, or do you like to respond to questions from me?

Just curious. :D

Usually I find something interesting to comment on. It could also be to answer a question asked in the post.

generally I grab a squirrel from outside, kill it, pin it to a piece of cardboard with a pen and make my own pie chart saying "Post/Set Computer on Fire/Don't Post" and then spin the squirrel

Resonate isn't a mod anymore?

Anyway I usually post out of curiosity and the fact that this site has so few members makes some topics hard to get into.

I answer questions when I am bored and if I want to comment on whatever is being discussed. I read a bunch of stuff but I don't necessarily comment if I have nothing important to say except "lol" or something of that nature. I like to have semi-meaningful responses, that's why I tried to avoid one-liners.

I will comment if it is a topic I am excited about...or if I have quickly thought of something silly to say.

I usually wait until I have something useful to say (bug reports, trying to help someone do or understand something). Or in a delete / default image request thread, to say I did something so others don't waste time trying to do what I already did. Otherwise, I try to avoid posting in forums altogether (I'm a Permanent Lurker on a few forums). My ideal post count would be 0... Yet, I sometimes try to be a bit friendlier, I guess, and try to say something...

But, I'm always nervous that I'm going to write things incorrectly (Spanish is my native language), so that holds me back. After posting I read my posts many, many times, to see if I wrote something wrong (while writing it I check / rewrite things many times). Sometimes, after weeks, I go and read my old posts again to verify them. It is very frustrating that way too many times I have the feeling that something is wrong, yet I can't find it. That really sucks.

Anyway, like at GB (where I have a grand total of 58 posts), the more people there are helping, deleting / changing images, etc., the less I post, since they are pretty fast at it, so I'll post less and less as time goes on. The same will happen here, I think (and I hope there will be a ton of users here, for the good of the site, I guess). Maybe I'll become a Permanent Lurker here, like it usually is for me, who knows.

I generally only comment if it's something that I feel strongly about, whether that be positive or negative.

I comment when I have something to say, wither it makes sense or whatever, I'll comment. If I dont have something to say, then I just dont comment. ^_^

I don't have any reason why I comment, I reply what I'm thinking and it useless a pointless remark.
