I wear a mix of cloth and disposables. In the cloth line, its mostly AIO and pocket or pull-on cloth diapers. I have a few contours and pre-folds too.

The Angry Diaper-Poll Nerd in me is trying to restrain himself, but can't help bemoaning that this poll is trying to do too many things at once, and so is going to paint a pretty murky picture. Plus, "yes" and "no" are non-answers with respect to the questions being asked, although I think I get the intent. Anyway...

I wear diapers only a few times a week. When I do wear, I mostly wear cloth diapers. When I wear cloth diapers, I mostly wear prefolds, pinned, with pull-on covers. I have lately dabbled into AIOs, but don't see them ever becoming my first choice. I just happened to stumble upon a cute one.

Cloth prefolds. If I am off sometimes 24/7. If I am working when I get home till I get up in the morning. Some days never.... just too much other stuff to get done.

I wear flat gauze diapers mostly 24/7. For overnight I add a baby prefold inside for extra absorbency. I wear pull-on plastic pants at night and snap-side ones during the day. I have several disposables but I save them for trips away from home and vacation.

I probably wear cloth 95% of the time, but I might only wear once to two times a week. I've worn a little more this week.

I wear cloth at night because I am a bed wetter. However, I use pull-on style (training pants type) cloth diapers--not listed on your poll. I like the pull-on because they are easier to put on and I don't have to deal with using pins. I use 2 or 3 pair depending on how much absorbancy I think I will need.

I have worn pull-on training pants in the past but the occasional bm accident makes them inconvenient and not practical when they need to be changed. Pin-on diapers work great for me.

I wear diapers 24/7 due to bladder and bowel incontinence. My primary daytime diaper is Seni super plus. My primary nighttime diaper is either Dry 24/7 or Seni Quatro depending on the time of year. Dry 24/7 in the winter because they retain heat. Seni Quatro in the summer because the breath and stay cooler in the summer.

A contour gauze diaper for me with a doubler combined with a terry towel for overnight absorbency along with one of several different types of pullon vinyl pants. Has anyone else tried using liquid handsoap with Aloe Vera for washing your plastic pants? It seems like it significantly extends their usefulness and doesn't have the detrimental effects that some other cleansers can have.

Never tried washing them with liquid hand soap. Always use extra delicate cycle of washing machine and small amount of regular detergent. Pants seem to last a long time and come out clean.--I put them in the dryer for 10 minutes with some towels.

I wear cloth flat gauze, probably 75% of the time to bed. Sometimes with a baby diaper as a stuffer, sometimes not. Always with pull-on style plastic pants.

Most people over soap plastic pants. 1 drop of a mild soap and some baking soda in the wash water and air-dry them. I've only lost pairs to worn-out elastics or a tear/snag.

I have a whole lot of prefolds of various vintage. Some are bought from places like CTDC and AngelFluff, but most of them my wife made after I cornered the local market in birdseye diaper fabric. I also have a handful of pocket diapers that I use for change of pace.

I use them occasionally when I feel like it. I really need to buy a few more.

I have a bunch of flat diapers I was using only these for a while but they were starting to get holes in them I switched back to disposable diapers for the most part and every aio and pocket diaper I have tried have leaked

I used to wear birdseye cotton prefolds every nigh. They needed to be extra thick to work with my side sleeping though. That thickness ended up causing too much hip pain so I had to go back to disposables. Thankfully I found betterdry works good enough to not leak most nights.

I'm starting to become a bit of a modern cloth fanatic, nothing terribly fancy just Chinese pocket nappies and shaped microfiber boosters.
Only have enough nappies so far to last about 2 days, but I can see me ordering more as new prints and styles come onto the market.
