I'm in a stupid number of groups on ravelry. I'll see something that catches my eye, join, lurk for a bit, do a random post, but that's about it. I've been back and forth a lot, but I came to the conclusion that I just like it better here.

I'm in 6 groups, 2 are local, 2 are EZ, 1 charity, and the KH group. I don't participate in any of them really. I prefer the forums here.

As for why people have so many? I think it's one of those things where you click join w/o thinking or you don't want to lose it because there might be something there you want to see later.

Beth your link is incorrect.

I'm in 3 groups: KH, Polyglots (that's what i am) and Knitting Russian Style, which has some amazing knitters as members and i get lots of inspiration from there and we can also discuss our knitting heritage.

I'm in alot, too many to keep up with. But then, I'm an information junkie and I need them. I rarely post but I most always read.

I'm in 10 groups at the moment, including KH. I joined the Yarnographers group hoping I could learn some photography tips and the Tour de France KAL group because I've never participated in a KAL and I LOVE the Tour.

Others are just for fun, and I don't participate heavily in any of them although I do check in regularly.

When I first got on Ravelry and looked through all the groups it was overwhelming! I saw a lot of them based on TV shows I watch(ed) and other topics I was interested in, but I didn't join because I didn't think I would really participate much.

It also depends on my mood at the time; if I'm feeling sociable and a little bit outgoing I'll join a group. I like the buttons, too!

Should I admit that I'm in an insane number of groups? I actually do it more to "collect" the "stamps" I participate in few of them. Just more of an expression of my interests than anything else. Off-hand I know that I'm in groups for homeschoolers, SCA Fiber arts, Obama supporters, a few other historic knitting groups, a few local ones, autism, glbt, bread baking, tea drinkers, and a bunch I can't think of right now.

I'm in 20 groups. I try to keep the number right around there and if I join a new group, I'll leave one that I'm not active in (which is most of them). Of the 20 groups I'm in, I read posts in about 8 of them, and actually post in about 3 or 4.

I don't think I'll ever really care for how the forums are set up on Ravelry. Guess I'm too spoiled for a real forum like KH.

See, that's why we love you mods - one of you catches something - somebody fixes it! Thanks Silver! - you probably saved me an hour and much cursing - some things that were so easy on my pc just aren't on my mac.
