    I love reading Trip Reports. It's how I cope nowadays. I know as soon as my frickin job winds down I'm making a bee-line for mecca!

    What is your favorite Forum Topic in VMB? The one you always go to first when logging on? I actually have several and I religiously go through them in this order:

    Downtown Hotels and Casinos

    Restaurants/Buffets

    Off Strip Properties

    Casino Gaming

    Trip Reports

    Misc. Chat

    Then I peruse all the other forums, in no particular order.

    How about you? Do you have a particular Forum(s) favorite? How do you navigate VMB? Where do you go to when you need to cope in between Vegas Trips?

    :faint:

    I always check out the new folks first / then for new info on Strip Hotels / next is the Trip Reports and the misc. LV info. When I have time, I will go into others but those are my 1st stops. This is such a great board with so much info to offer.....wish everyone who ever visits LV would take advantage.....sure wish I had found it before my 1st trip!!

    I NEVER go to specific forums or subforums.

    At the top of the main page is a clickable link that says 'New Posts'. Each time you visit VMB it will pull up every thread/topic that has a new post or reply since your last visit. This saves time as you will only see the topics that are active & trending. Click it when you first logon each visit to the site. No more missed topics or discussions. :beer: :peace:

    Exactly what I do... I usually don't even have a clue what forum I'm in... along with not even having a clue of what I'm talking about! :wave:

    Casino gaming is my favorite but I spend time reading quite a few others also. New Posts is a great place to start.

    Usually I can check only one and it will be Casino Gaming.

    When I have time to sit down and go through then I usually hit up only about 5-6 other sections.
    Would love the Trip Reports more if people include more pictures and video.

    When I signed up for the board several years ago, the board came up during a search of hotel discounts. I used to go to Vegas about twice every three years, stayed at least a portion of the trip at my regular comped hotels (Harrah's in the 1990s due to my local play & Stardust through the closing). in 2008, my comps were dry but we wanted to head back to Vegas.

    Since I came here, I've been to Vegas upwards of 4-6 times a year (manly due to earning many free flight vouchers and using miles) for the next few years. I'm down to 1-2 trips a year at this point, and sometimes I branch out beyond Vegas within the trip, but still look forward to trips.

    I click new posts and click the threads which interest me. If this wasn't an option and I was forced to click forums separately to find new posts, I would rank them as follows:

    Favorite: Trip Reports.
    Second Tier: Casino Development, Downtown Casinos, Off-Strip Casinos, Strip Casinos.
    Third Tier: Comps, LV for the Frugal, Poker Room.

    I'm aware of the New Posts option but I still prefer to click on the forums separately.

    I guess it's just the way I'm wired, lol! :beer::thumbsup:
