Hello Guys,

Welcome to my thread. Today I am going to share my own knowledge about the necessity of reading forum post. Let me ask you something

Which one you like most?

1. Do you like to make your own post ?
2. Do you like to spend time on reading forum post?

Honestly I will go for number (2). Personally I believe without gathering enough knowledge from this forum its not possible for a user to make quality posts. I always prefer to spend much time on reading forum posts rather than making new one. You can't imagine how much valuable information you could gather by reading many sections useful thread. you will be able to enrich your knowledge shelf with better information. Its not only a place to learn & share about bitcoin or other crypto currencies. As an example you can learn a lot about worldwide politics from Politics & Society section. IMO its a complete community where you will be find most of the answer that you are looking for.

From my own experience I will specially suggest our new members to spend much time on reading forum post and I believe it will help you to build your own forum profile. As a signature participant I never try to fill the post count to get full weekly payments because I believe its better to read forum posts rather than making useless one.

1. Yes. But only when really necessary. (e.g. when sharing something, or when I'm warning people from visiting a certain website).

2. Yes. Though I mostly spend a bit less time here on Bitcointalk, but slightly more on Reddit; as the topics that more interesting are easily sorted to the top. Whereas as we know, there's a significant amount of spam posts here. Reddit is also crap most of the time though; it's pretty much a shill-your-bags community most of the time.

Reading posts is very important, not just because of the fact that something can be learned from that, but also because by reading what others write we can reply in a better way, and avoid to repeat what has already been written.

Unfortunately, a large number of forum users do not spend any time for reading, they mostly read the titles and the first / last post, and their replying are largely based on that. That's why we have a huge amount of repeating / beating a dead horse posts.

I prefer #2 since it takes loads of time just to create a possibly redundant thread that'd slowly sink anyway.

I customize time for reading topics.
Especially if the topic is important and contains useful information.
I see some responses.
I love short themes that offer a lot of information.
I hope there is a topic summary.

I prefer reading from from the forum than creating my own topics unless it become very necessary for me to create my own topics. This forum has existed for quite a number of years now hence there are more interesting topics to read  and learn from well experienced members of the forum. Reading is always good if you want to play smart in the cryptosphere.

I like both, but i always do number 2. Because before post anything you need knowledge about topic what do you want to post. And you can get knowlegde by Reading other post and find good information.

1. Do you like to make your own post ?
2. Do you like to spend time on reading forum post?
Before going to answer the question of the OP, that which one among those two options, users would prefer during their time in the forum, let's go back to the users' activities in the forum.
Which one you will do first, reading or writing?

The answer is simple, Reading.
First, new users have to read to register account, LOL, it's the fact.
Second, new registered users have to spend their first minutes or hours to read forum rules (most of new users skip this step), read to get the forum structures (boards, child boards, local boards, etc.), read to see what senior and current users discussed.
Next, they will write for some purposes:
- Creating a topic to ask for help (a)
- Creating a post to discuss (b)
- Applying to join campaigns (c)
- Creating a post to spam, or hunt for bounties  (I don't recommend this step, LOL).
The cycle between reading and writing repeat (due to it is a cycle, LOL) for every user, regardless of spammers.

For (a):
Before creating a new topic to ask for help, please use Google search or Forum search with key words to find available topics or posts on your issues.

For (b):
Before composing a post to discuss, please spend several minutes to deeply think that what you will write is worthy and constructive or not. If your ideas don't contribute nothing, due to it is boring or already given above by others. Stop at this.

For (c):
Before applying to join campaigns, users have to read first, at least read the titles, and payment rates. If bounty hunters say that they don't read titles and payment rates, they are liars. They likely ignore rules, or something else, but they will do read titles and pay-rates.


In a summary, it is not a matter that users like which one, reading or writing.
They have to read first, before start writing.

I think more important than spending time reading forum posts is to spending time reading information elsewhere.

Go read books, newspapers, Twitter comments of influent and knowledge people

snip-

Well, that is a very organized statement.
Read first before writing, that is right. For me, it takes a few minutes to read in a single topic because there are some topics that already answered by the previous replies. It will cause redundant if you didn't read the previous reply.

I like to go there in meta, scam discussion, and reputation, watching and learning some dramas.
Reading news and updates will probably give you more knowledge to do the writing and posting.

Well, am in a bounty campaign and that requires me to reach a minimum requirement weekly, but I love reading knowledge shared by others and also following relevant arguments. I sometimes surpass the bounty requirements so I can say I also love sharing when necessary.

I enjoy both making and reading posts on here. There's very few places elsewhere on the internet with more knowledge on Altcoin and Bitcoin mining than on this very forum, and though I do not post on the Bitcoin mining parts of this forum anymore, this forum helps keep me up-to-date with the most recent miners and other speculation related to mining. Crypto's always growing and expanding in new ways, and you're going to fall behind if you do not read. I find Reddit's better for other non-mining-related information most of the time.

Both reading and writing are very important in the forum, one needs to write for others to have something to read and learn from, and the knowledge gained could be applied in some other form and presented as a post. They both function together, majority would say they prefer reading but I prefer actively contributing to the forum and being helpful to other where I can.

I spend almost 3 hours a day just reading comments on people's posts and also new threads being created on this forum. I also have to go back to my previous posts to see if someone posted a reply or question on something that I posted, to give prompt reply to their question or comment.

Some people might think that this is a tedious task, but when you like what you doing, you never get frustrated with the task at hand. It also helps that you getting a small reward for your effort in the form of the signature campaign payments.  Wink

In my opinion "reading" is the most important part of this forum and I just love to read.  Wink

<...>
If merit is somehow correlated to topic interest, there are a couple of ways to get a glimpse at the most merited threads and browse them based on the amount of merits the threads have received:

a)   Use @LoyceV’s thread to see the most merited topic: Most merited topics (SUM of OP + posts) (UPDATED!).

b)   Use the Merit Dashboard, by selecting the "Rankings" Tab. The Tab contains a table with the most merited threads ("Top Merited Thread Ranking"), whose names can be clicked to go to the thread itself. You can also filter the ranking by date range (to delimit the threads to awarded merits in a certain timeframe) or board (by using the subsection filter i.e. for a setting it to a Local board or Bitcoin Discussion).

There are not many users have habits to do backwards reading like you, but it is good.
And, I agreed with you at this, as I raised same point above that:
Users have to read first, before they start writing.
No matter how they read, solely forwards reading, or combinations of forwards and backwards reading, they have to read first, before they can write.
There is no option for all, no exception.

Well, I like both things, but I prefer reading. Every day I spend 2-3 hours on Bitcointalk. Same like @Kakmakr I also trying to follow topics where I have posted recently. There are several reasons why I prefer reading instead of writing. I don't see any reasons to post if I don't have good knowledge about certain subject. There are so many members who have better knowledge about crypto in general than me and they can make more professional, informative answer to question. I'd rather just read their posts and trying to educate myself.
Another reason - Bitcointalk is very active forum and usually when I visit certain topic question to OP question was already answered, so I don't see any reasons to repeat what was already said.
Another thing - sometimes I'm having problems to express myself, and it's not about language skills. I'm not writer neither in English, neither in my first language and I'm not good at communication. Most of people can write same stuff in better style than I do.
And another aspect. For example it's interesting to read stuff in Meta or Reputation sections, but personally, I prefer to stay aside from all drama there.
On the other hand, posting is also very important for me. Damn it - I have made over 5100 on Bitcointalk in total! But I must admit that some of these posts probably can't be considered as quality posts, especially these which I made in my first years on Bitcointalk. Now I'm trying to focus on quality, but usually quality posts requires some time. And unfortunately I don't have enough time, so sometimes I can't reply in some topics just because I don't have enough time.
Well, it's long post, sorry if it was boring to read Cheesy. But today I have some free time and this subject is interesting for me.

Gathering knowledge is always a better idea than start posting early. Yeah obviously we are really blessed to have so many genious person on our community. If a newbie follow their creative threads and ideas then its probably going to help them to enrich their own knowledge vault.

I always prefer to develop myself by reading other posts from many sections of the bitcointalk. Honestly I believe that everyone should earn proper information and knowledge before posting something. As an example if you open a thread and readers don't feel it necessary or found nothing interesting then your thread got no value IMO. Its nothing but a waste of time.

Basically some users think that if they make so many post they will get merit. I am completely disagree with that because I think getting merit doesn't depend on making a big number of posts. Anyone will be happy to give you merits if you are able to make quality posts.

I absolutely agree with you. People should focus on quality, not on quantity. By making one quality post you have higher chance to get Merit than by making 10 generic posts. But it's not all about merit. More posts means bigger payment from signature campaign/bounty. As long as we have signature campaigns on Bitcointalk, there will be lot of such kind of people who came here just for money, and they aren't interested in crypto and self-development at all.
