    Do you visit this forum a lot?

    You may be suffering from Alerts Deficiency Syndrome (ADS).

    Definition: A condition whereby a forum member remains constantly logged-in and spends most of their time on the forums in a desparate bid to get their red 'alerts' icon to show up. The member will post content on a wide range of issues at an almost manic pace from sensible, considered responses to technical issues, to out and out spurious rubbish; all in an effort to gain more alerts.

    Symptoms include (but are not limited to):
    • Logging-in 10 times per day to see if the little red marker has appeared at the top right of your screen
    • Starting spurious threads about people's names just to get attention (and likes)
    • Creating 'fake' syndromes to get more likes
    • Regularly referring to the trophies list to see if you can get your next one anytime soon?
    • Desparate and/or flagrant attempts at ingratiating yourself with "known" members of the community in order to improve standing/status and ultimately to get more likes
    Cure: As yet unknown.

    Know watcha mean. Have far more posts here than on the other forum site I've been a member of for years. Actually have decided to add a forum to a site where we weren't planning to have one to expose the product to a bunch more people who I think will really dig it.
