1. What do you use the forums most for? Entertainment and socialization. I get bored, I visit forums. There's some hope I'll eventually find likeminded people. Also I just like to write my opinions on various matters.
2. Does the forums service a personal need or want? If so, what exactly. A need for socialization. I take inspiration from people I talk to sometimes. It motivates me and gives me new ideas for things to do. I learn new things now and then. Occasionally I'll visit specialized forums if I need to read specific information or opinions.
3. Do you plan or have you met anyone in real life that you met on the forums, If so how did it turn out? Well I haven't met anyone from PerC, but I've met a couple of people from online before and it went just fine, I'm not against meeting internet people but I am picky and will expect to be good friends with them first. I'm not into casual group meetups.
