1) How often do you visit this forum?
3-4 times a week.
2) How often do you visit the Candlekeep site itself?
The same.
3) Are you interested in any of the actual site updates (as indicated on the sites Home Page)

Well, sure.
4) Are you interested in fan-created articles on the site as well as official "canon" information?
Many great features of the worlds were thanks to the dedicated fans of the series, so, certainly, yes
5) Do you use the "Active Topics" function of the forum?

What's that?
6) Do you visit any other forum categories other than this "General Chat" or the ProductsNovels categories?
Yeah! It is fun to learn in ANY ways.
7) How do you rate the site on a scale of 1-10 (1 being Low, 10 being High)
Without questions 10. I haven't been on much sites that would revive such interest in me.

Although, it should be noted that the 'count' of posts is usually off and it's better to click on the arrow next to the last poster to see the most recent posts on the thread. And, before it sounds like I'm complaining, I know that it's an issue that is being looked into correcting with CK2 and the Sage is very good about keeping everything updated. Thank you, Sage!

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

5) All the time.
6) Most of them, depending on what I'm looking for.
7) 10




Seeing as I've been here for a while, I thought my answers could use some updating... and then I looked through them, and honestly the only answers that have changed for me are the first two; my visits to the forum have been sporadic, with long periods of complete absence (due to either work or one big project of my own or another, in every case), and I hardly ever go to the main site page, simply because I have downloaded all of the scribe contributions that interest me, and I feel much the same way as fellow scribe Victor regarding 4E, but my feelings are mostly specific to the 4E Realms. If I weren't spending so much money on Pathfinder, I'd probably pick up the 4E Dark Sun and Eberron settings. With respect to Question 6, then, I would have to say that I now regularly visit almost every category *except* Products/Novels.

Playing in the Realms since the Old Grey Box (1987)... and *still* having fun with material published before 2008, despite the NDA'd lore.

If it's comparable in power with non-magical abilities, it's not magic.

I know you're entitled to your own opinion, sfdragon. But isn't that rating too low? Like Sage, I'm also curious...

1) How often do you visit this forum?

may be a bit too soon to answer that one as I've just returned after quite some time, but at the moment it's at least once per day.

2) How often do you visit the Candlekeep site itself?

I use it as a springboard to the forum, so see above.

3) Are you interested in any of the actual site updates (as indicated on the sites Home Page)

Yes. That's also the reason why I bookmarked the Home Page instead of the forum.

4) Are you interested in fan-created articles on the site as well as official "canon" information?

absolutely.

5) Do you use the "Active Topics" function of the forum?

Now that I've learned about it through this questions, I plan to.


6) Do you visit any other forum categories other than this "General Chat" or the ProductsNovels categories?

In fact I think that I may visit the General Chat for the first time. I find the Realmslore subforum most useful and as there is so much I've yet to read I tend to overlook the other subforums.


7) How do you rate the site on a scale of 1-10 (1 being Low, 10 being High)

I love Candlekeep but as I still hope (Am I naive? Who cares!) that the times return when new material can be created (and published) at this site, I'll give it an 8.

While I'm not sure if you are still looking for replies to this question, as I finally registered with the website, I figured I might as well try.

1) As I've been getting back into learning more about the lore against recently, quite often when searching for information on subjects that pique my interest. A few times a week lately
2) The same as above
3) I suppose they help, but the forums are probably my main reason for being here
4) Sure
5) I haven't as yet .
6) A little, but not often
7) 9

1. Since I have discovered it, daily.
2. Two or three times per week.
3. Since joining, I've been regularly delving for information.
4. I'm interested in anything I can use for building my campaign, canon, homebrew, speculation, or even just interesting discussion.
5. It's a quick one-click way to catch the topics of the day and find an interesting discussion.
6. I've been watching scrolls from all over in looking for the lore I wish to draw upon for my campaign and just enjoying sharing ideas with other players.
7. Defer to answer until later as I've only been on the site for not quite two weeks.

1) Used to be weekly, but now mostly just when someone replies to a subscribed thread or when I need to research something for my campaign.
2) About the same.
3) Yes.
4) Please.
5) No. The most active topics sort to the top on their own.
6) Yes. Most of my posts are under Running the Realms.
7) 9.
