Pretty simple...how often do you fire up UA?

It would be if the answer was simple. It depends on where I am, what else I'm doing, and whether someone has a question. I may not touch it for a couple of months, then play a dozen or more games in a row.

So I compromised with "Every Other Week".
Some days it just doesn't pay to gnaw through the straps.

I'm the every day guy, though not so much when doing art conversions or the UANL. I still consider that FRUA though. I did 57 days in November and December.

I try to get at least a little bit done on a mod each day, although I occassionally take a day or two off.  So, I voted everyday.  Often, I'll only have it working for a minute or two to import a new pic or something and just check to see how it looks.

I settled for "Only whenever a new module comes out", as I'm usually curious about new modules, but I admit this hasn't been very true during the last year. I got too distracted by other stuff, both good and bad (and also including lots of other games) and now I fear I'm a few new modules behind. I also haven't really tried to design something myself for a long time, lately I've been more of a player than a designer, if at all. But I haven't completely given up any ambitions yet. I guess I'm still more likely to release a new UA (or DC?) design than an enjoyable NWN module or AGS adventure, and anyway, even though I have been neglecting them, I can't see myself ever losing my love for any of these four creative tools and their communities.  :)
