How long do you follow a question?

Asked by intro24 (1434points) October 20th, 2008

If you answer a question how long is it until you stop following it? Do you eventually hit the stop following button or just forget about it?

Till the thread gets boring or it pisses me off. It’s fun to have a random old question pop up every once in a while.

wow JP how do you manage it then?

@Bri :: That is automatic. It will build up if you never click on those links.

Due to a problem with Firefox the page would kill my browser if I loaded it. It was simply to long. So by the time I noticed that feature my browser would die if I loaded those pages.

This was fixed with pagination on Fluther and FF3. I just got in the habit of never checking those links.

And now I think it is funny to have those numbers large.

Some I’ll follow forever. If there is a definitive answer given, and nothing fun/interesting going on, then I’ll stop.

I’m currently following over 1,360 activities. A fraction of johnpowell‘s. ツ

Till i get completely bored with it….ususally after a week or so.

Jeruba's avatar

Until I’ve seen enough, whether it’s soon or late. I don’t follow more than eight or ten at a time.

forever. i haven’t checked my activities in for ever. i just can’t keep up. there are so many more questions to answer, and so little time to answer them! i’ll check back on a few when i think about them, but it’s rare.

If it’s a question that is so basic that it only needs a few good responses before it gets boring, I stop following it.

Until it ceases to feed my narcissistic side.
