    How often do you ask questions to users?

    How often do you go back to read their responses?

    Do you ever give someone some "pity questions" because no one has asked them anything?

    Do you ever go back to check if your question has already been asked?

    Overall do you find the section a good way to get to know members?

    Does it excite you when people ask you questions?

    at least 4 times a day to various people

    How often do you go back to read their responses?
    if i remember asking a question and i see their thread updated


    Do you ever give someone some "pity questions" because no one has asked them anything?
    sometimes

    Do you ever go back to check if your question has already been asked?
    if it's a fairly common question then yes but usually I ask questions that nobody else would think of, so no i don't usually go back and check.

    Overall do you find the section a good way to get to know members?
    sometimes but not usually


    Does it excite you when people ask you questions?
    only if my thread hasn't been updated in a while then it suddenly appears.

    How often do you ask questions to users?
    I don't really. I can't think of any questions I would want to ask, so I don't.

    How often do you go back to read their responses?
    Since I don't ask questions, I don't have to check responses. I do occasionally get bored and browse through the UtM threads for the people I like.

    Do you ever give someone some "pity questions" because no one has asked them anything?
    Nope

    Do you ever go back to check if your question has already been asked?
    Still don't ask questions, so I don't have to worry about it.

    Overall do you find the section a good way to get to know members?
    I think it is. A nifty little Q&A section for kicks is a good idea in my mind.

    Does it excite you when people ask you questions?
    Not 'excite,' per se. Makes me somewhat happy that someone wants to know something about me.

    How often do you ask questions to users?

    Depends on my mood and ideas...or the general GF activity (if it's "dead").

    How often do you go back to read their responses?

    I have automatic subscription to all threads where I post. So unless I unsubscribe manually, I check each time they reply.

    Do you ever give someone some "pity questions" because no one has asked them anything?

    No. In addition, sometimes I'd like to ask a question but know that the member barely checks his/her utm so I don't bother to ask anymore.

    Do you ever go back to check if your question has already been asked?

    Sometimes. Some of the utm threads have too many pages already and I haven't read the entire thread to see if the question I want to ask has been asked. I was also told I ask weird questions so I just assume there's fewer chance that another weirdo has beaten me to my questions.

    Overall do you find the section a good way to get to know members?

    Yes. There were members I wouldn't talk to before but now that I know more stuff about them than their replies to threads on the other forums, I feel I "know" them more and I'm more comfy interacting with them.

    Does it excite you when people ask you questions?

    Feelings vary depending on the questions or who asks them. It can be surprise, slight paranoia, pfft, pleased, worried, happy, and yes, excitement (especially when there is nothing else to do in GF).

    How often do you ask questions to users?
    Not as often as I should, Usually when I can come up with what I feel is a clever question. Thing is I dont like asking a question thats already been asked.

    How often do you go back to read their responses?
    Usually ASAP! If I've asked questions I always check back to see the answers.

    Do you ever give someone some "pity questions" because no one has asked them anything?
    yes.

    Overall do you find the section a good way to get to know members?
    Extremely!

    Does it excite you when people ask you questions?
    Probably one of the my top 3 favorite places here at GF. Of course it excites me!
