    I'm not addictive but I've been going through some health and life problems, very serious ones and I don't have a lot of friends out there and people here have been very supportive and helpful.

    Nope, I'm only here to talk with buddies and update my TF comic. There has been times I've left this site before because I got busy with other stuff.

    I can't say I'm not, it's fun being a TF fan and all but I do find myself being on here a bit too much sometimes.

    I'm on here all the time, and way too addicted but, if my life was better and my wife wasn't a drunk hooked on pills and stuck at the bar all the time or running around doing "favors" for friends, I wouldn't be on here as much. I'd be paying attention to her but, our marriage is over and I just sit around the house with the kids when I'm not working so I'm on here whenever I sneak out for a smoke. (the computer is outside in the garage and there is no smoking in the house)

    On the bright side, my collection has gone up by 100 figures since I joined this site, and I now have a spread sheet to track them all and my wants.

    When you come on in the morning and see the same name as the last poster on every thread, you realize just who the addicts are.
    Also, it seems as though many of these posters go for quantity over quality, like having tons of posts and talking all the time will win them some award.
    Meh, whatever.

    I come to look for news of releases, and occasionally chime in on threads in Toy discussion and TF General Discussion. Don't really tread the rest of the board, so I wouldn't say addicted.

    I'm here every day, but I have several other boards I regularly post at so I can't say TFW is a specific addiction.

    I joined near the beginning of 2005 and I've only made about twenty-five threads in that time. Mostly it's not worth my bother because they either get ignored or turn to crap by the end of the first page. My own threads are generally an unpleasant experience. How some people can make thread after pointless thread day after day boggles my brain sometimes. They get the vaguest of thought in their head and a thread is created about it before they've probably even asked themselves if it actually needs a (whole new) thread made or not. I don't know if I would call that an addiction though - more just lacking a filter in their brain that tells them when or not a question or subject is actually important only to them and doesn't need sharing with the wider masses. To the repeat pointless threadmakers every thread they make is an important and thought-provoking masterpiece they need to share with the world. Even if they're told repeatedly otherwise.

    I'm really only here for shits and giggles and a bit of TF chat. Sometimes it more shit than giggles, but there's always TF chat. I don't buy as many figures these days so I take less and less interest in the toy release threads here. To be honest, if it wasn't for the fun side of stuff I'd have probably left here long ago if I was just here for toys.

    You can't be addicted unless you don't have a life off of TFW or the internet.

    I come here every day, but I don't post that often. Often, it's like, "hey, almost forgot to go on tfw2005."

    Since 2006 (but in July 2009 I stopped posting until March 2010) because I had to figure out my love for the franchise after ROTF.

    I haven't left since then, if i can't post in a night that's because i'm busy or powers out.

    My homepage is set to TFW2005 and my e-mail. My usually peruse consists of checking the front page news, then usually Radicons, then checking the boards, usually only looking at TF General Discussion, TF Toy Discussion, Fan Art, and a quick glance at General Discussion. Oh, and I'll open up the Show Yourself thread if there are new posts.

    This happens everyday, sometimes several times. It's my default goto internet place. Too much time spent here I suppose -- I'm afraid I'm gonna miss something I guess.

    I tend to come here everyday if I get the chance, and check most of the forums. However, I tend only to post if I have something to add to the forum.

    High post counts in a VERY short space of time usually point to an unfavourable signal:noise ratio.
