When I first tried Ubuntu, and first found the forums, I would come here to search for answers to specific questions, and to hunt for solutions to issues that I was having.

Now, I like to look over the entire forum from time to time, and see what other people are discussing, resolving, creating and whatnot. Quite often, I will see things brought to light that I never thought of myself. This has led to me trying several new things, and having quite a good time doing it.

Anyone else that harvests the forums for new ideas? Or am I the only freeloader here 8-[

I do this all the time. I search the how-to's and game sections to find new things to try.

Absolutely !! In fact I sucribe the "Absolute Beginners Talk" daily digest and have an RSS live bookmark to the forums on my toolbar. I find it a great learning tool, to read things which I know little or nothing about, for future reference .

I browse on occasion. Always something new interesting that I didn't know.

Most of my time here is simply "browsing". I usually wander thru several different forums or simply search the more recent postings.

Though I tend to look for new things to try but I often find solutions to problems I didn't realise existed and others I thought minor enough to ignore.

Occasionally I find an opportunity to use my limited knowledge to help someone else but usually all I can offer is encouragement and guidance to narow their search for answers.

with me, it's more like wandering into something rather than actual harvesting.

Yup. I like tinkering with my system in my free time, and this forum is a good way to 'harvest' as you so eloquently put it.
