Well.... I took a few months off for vacation, but I'm back on there as well now. I'm on there 2-3 times a day during the week, and probably on here 10-12 times a day during the week. I'm also on redflagdeals.com about 6-8 times a day during the week. CDfreaks sees me maybe 3 times a month on a good month.
Basically, Redflag deals is in my own country, and I need to do a LOT of work to help keep the noobs from jumping on hot deals on crappy media. I do a lot of tech support for media related problems too. Since most of the stuff is easily available to me, testing it and giving results quickly is much easier for me, then when working with people across the ocean!
CDRlabs is at least based on the same land mass as me, even if not in the same country, and most of the same media people use is available to me. Not to mention I do reviews here and all
CDRinfo is based in Greece, and though it has a strong US and small Canadian following, most of the media used in the reviews is either completely different from what I can get, or is of a completely different grade, often giving VERY different results from what I experience.
CDFreaks is again based across the ocean in Europe, and the same location specific problems with CDRinfo apply to them.
Put much simpler, I spend the most time on forums where I can relate to people, and make myself useful. Although I find CDRlabs is so gosh darn friendly and fun to hang around ANYWAYS, I'd probably be here more just as much either way
