Poll: Do you even go to page two on the forums? (174 votes)

Sure, what are you even talking about? 18%
Sometimes, when I am bored. 36%
There are more pages? 46%

I am a regular forums user but I hardly ever look at older threads, which means almost every topic that isn't on the first page anymore is just... gone.

Funny enough I just started venturing into page two lately.

however you couldn't DARE me to go to page 3. I hear people just don't come out the same.

It's just a dream, professoress. There's no such thing as two.

The forums doesn't move fast enough to really bother, even after a nights sleep there's usually topics on the first page with no new posts.

Depends. I generally read the first page to see the initial responses and then go to the last two or three pages to see if any discussions have formed. I do not personally understand the point of only ever reading the OP and then blurting out a comment without seeing what everyone else has said. However, I do sometimes just throw down my comment and go but that is a rarity.

Nope, I usually hang around page 1 clicking on the same threads because I forget I have already seen them.

I go to page two maybe once a month. If I'm looking for a specific thread and a lot of trash threads are on top it might be near the top of page two. Or during E3 there are enough new topics that page two still has new stuff.

I really wish there was a way to ignore threads so that they never show up for you when you visit the forums. I don't play MMOs and don't like Star Wars, so the Kessler Run and Good Luck Have Bothans threads were threads that I would NEVER read. They were taking up two important spots on page one for about a month and a half.

Sometimes I'll visit the site six or seven times a day and come across really interesting threads that only get one post and end up buried by long running threads. Most of the threads are ones I've seen on a previous visit an hour ago but since they got recent posts they bury the new ones. I wish there was a way to view only new topics.

Yeah sometimes. Actually more like page 6-7 and so on. I spend so much time on here that i kinda have to to find something new i haven't already clicked a dozen time.

Very rarely go to second page of topics, unless it's game specific once in a while. Like others here have said, this forum moves pretty slow for that usually.

Sometimes I even venture into "No Man's Land" which is also known as page 3.

I scan though page one to see where the conversation started to go then flip to the end to see where it ended up. If it's interesting I will go a page or two back to try and piece together a conversation.

I can't say I always read all the comments but if the thread is good I may. Sometimes I just read the first and last pages. When it comes to the wrestling thread I started somewhere in the 500's

Yes I do, and by the way I had an idea for the forum.

There should be a way to see recent topics like we do now, but have off-topic and general discussion excluded. (so basically, you would see only topics from wiki forums)

"Sure, what are you even talking about?" has my vote, I don't check the forum very often, thus I go past the the 2nd pages to catch-up.

No. I only go about a quarter the way down the main forums after the stickies. God how I wish I could remove those stickies, there's no point to them for me, when all I want is most recent topics.

@egg That already exists. Scroll down the forum page and look right.

Wow, I guess I'm in the minority, but I do go to page and beyond most of the time. However, I'm mostly a skimmer so there's not a lot of reading the post.

Yes. I mean topics don't get pushed down super fast since traffic here seems to be moderately low (which I like, I hate the message boards where your thread is already on the 2nd page 3 minutes after posting it), but I will look at and even reply to topics from a day or two ago.

And with threads, I try to read a good bunch of the entire thread, or all of it if the thread isn't like 50 pages before replying to get a good feel of the direction of the topic.

Nope. But that said, I come to Giant Bomb many times per day so it's not like I'm missing out on any thread important/interesting.

Absolutely, early in the morning when people are still asleep is a prime time to look at older threads
