I visit once first thing a.m. and once in evening. Also, sometimes around lunch, so let's say about
2 or 3 times daily.
I first look to see if there is a relatively new user with a standard question or topic I can contribute to. This is the simple stuff and takes load off more experienced posters that may need to reserve their time/resources for the really difficult or serious cases that come up. Just part of being a good board member...
Sometimes I see a question that is amenable to my six years worth of saved links and research -- I can therefore put something out there for a user that maybe some other member would struggle a while to come up with in a reasonable time. Remember, some new posters here (and their partners) are really hurting psychologically, and relieving this is, in a way, just as important as handling their physical stuff. Be decent, and karma will come back around...
Finally, I scan for postings related to low uPSA rises post-RALP--like why uPSA might become detectable but just kinda sit at a low reading for years -- if I ever see a poster that can explain (or report their docs' explanations) of reasons why uPSA might behave like this, well, then I will have hit the mother lode...
