Sometimes I come to a thread that is already commented by other users and it's already filled up to page 3 and more. I put my two cents and then I go onwards.

That thread, like any other threads, would be piled down as new threads are being made and popular ones getting bumped to the top. Then, one day, it'll resurface. And, I'll be like, "this thread looks familiar. Did I already post in here?"

Sometimes I just stop myself on posting. Because if I make a new post and backtrack to find my old post in the same thread they might not be the same idea/intent. Then, I'll be like, "damn, is that what I was thinking in the beginning? Man, I sound like a hypocrite/idiot/not funny/redundant."

You know what I'm sayin.'

yeah, but I also chalk it up to being in either a particular mood, or just knowing my general feeling of being unable to express myself succinctly and precisely.

Post and forget.

my brain usually always senses it once I go to a thread topic that I posted in before.
but I think I feel that way whenever I play forum games....
I sometimes end up at the same thread while going through the list = ^ = ;;;

Yeah I always comeback to the threads I post on. Especially in the forum games haha

it's quite amusing. On a really long thread, I type my reply in the box. then on another tab, I go back to check if I already posted... and sometimes my past reply totally contradicted my current reply... like saying I like blue instead of green etc. it's like... "awkward..." I suppose some of my thoughts are not consistent, it depends on how I feel in that particular moment in time, and will change over time.

or for e.g., the question, are you happy being single... on a good day I would say yes. but 30 days later... i'll be like... no am not happy. lol. so it contradicts.

But I guess it makes for good comedy and to show that am a total hypocrite lol.

________

On a "normal" forum, they have a marker that tells you whether you already posted or not. CR is the only forum I've been to that doesn't have that marker lol... I get so confused about which thread I've already posted in.

If it's a really short thread, I might remember posting in it. If it's long, there's a really slim chance I'll go back to it and remember that I posted already.

I will bookmark forum posts I've commented on. I occasionally will go back to them. If the topic dies down or after some time I might delete the bookmark. I also bookmark the discussions for some manga/anime whether or not I post there, particularly the anime not on CR since I just go to the comments for those. I keep my bookmarks pretty organized too.

But I don't keep track of my specific posts. I always bookmark whatever was the last page I read, which is often the current page, and forget if I posted 10 or so pages ago.

no, not really. I even get surprised when I get a notification about one of my posts.
