    What are you generally always doing when you type out THW address in your browser, or pick it from bookmarks?

    I mean, there's a cycle of tasks which you do, isn't it?

    Take me, for instance: I always go first through the process of responding to messages, and then I always aimlessly browse through the Icon and Skin sections. From time to time, I get around the Off-Topic and Site Discussion forums. I am also quite active in Arena. And that's it.

    How complex your Hive Life is? What are those tiny things that are making your Hive Life?

    I usually scroll at the way down to the Gamer's Hub area, specifically the Roleplaying and Warcraft Discussion sections. Then I gradually move upwards, stopping by Concept Art and Screenwriting, Storyboarding and Concept Creation. Sometimes I check out Map Development and my journey would end at the Off-Topic section with regular stops by the Arena.

    Few times a day I press that "New Posts" button and look if there's something interesting. So basically I'm using all possible boards around the website. I just pick the most interesting ones and post there.

    I click the THW Chat bookmark and then I leave the computer on for hours while I'm doing something actually useful.

    Oh, and occasionally I have to check if there's anything to reject in the skin section, but M0rbid is persistently up before me and therefore cleans out the over-night rubbish before I come around.

    Then when I'm eating, I tend to check (in order of priority) the Moderator's Lobby, Site Discussion, Arena, Concept Art / Fan Art, Texturing & Surfacing and lastly Off Topic. Because of this my lunch always takes an hour to eat.

    I remember times when I take a sandwich or something, then eat a little, and find something interesting. I think that I ate more stale sandwiches in my life then anything other.

    Phone version : Open up UserCP, check messages and subscriptions. Then went into 'New Posts' button and read new threads.
    PC version : Open UserCP, went into chat.

    Wandering around in the request section, modeling and animation section, map section and model section. Sometimes I comment in any of those sections.

    In firefox it's constantly open, whenever I get the chance I navigate to hive and hit user cp and check for new replies, sometimes when bored I check the spells section and new posts in off topic.
    I only rarely do anything else.

    And besides that I may check Offtopic for smth that may decide to make me read a little then goodbye. Total time wasted on the site: 15 minutes/day. Don't feel bad, for ATS site I waste a little more time, I dont like wasting time on any forums anymore. MOAR BNET IS THE ONLY TRUTH ABOUT BLIZZ GGaming

    I respond to all my messages, then I go to the Jass section and see if there are any new threads or posts, then I go to the Spells section to give people reviews and shit.
    Then, when I'm out of things to post on, I check the Off-Topic section and I go into chat to be a SPAMMAH.

    Finally, I start thinking of Jass snippet ideas to write and post.

    Well...
    Respond to hate-mail. (pms)
    Then respond to hate-mail. (pms)
    And then respond to hate-mail. (pms)
    But then... respond to hate-mail. (pms)
    And finally....... respond to hate-mail. (pms)

    And afterwards I spam Mod's Lobby and just check the maps section for easily rejectable maps.
    And at the end of the day, post in the WYDT thread.

    (Oh and the chat is pinned to my chrome, so it's always open when I turn on my computer and open up my browser)

    Look at models, skins, icons, and then go into my profile and see anyone posted and comment back to them and do the same every single day.
    I also click on new posts to see what's going on and USER CP as well.

    Oh, I also invest my time into writing hate-mail and sending it to Vengeancekael to express my anger and homophobia.

    And I check the Triggers and Scripts section to see who needs help :3

    I quickly check Off-Topic and then go to the chat to see if Joe-Black-5 is there. If he isn't and no one greets me I usually leave within a minutes time and return in a week or two.
