How to get heaps of responses on your thread?

Post by Cuchu » Fri, 18 May 2007 5:35 pm

Am curious, some threads would not have at all or very few responses, but some threads would go on and on for pages even.
So what do you think what has to be there in the thread(s) to get heaps of responses?
To get the dialogue going, that is.

1. Use an avatar which has a bit of cleavage in it.

2. Employ phrases with mild innuendo that suggest you are female, young, free and possibly up for a bit.

3. Put up a post on American imperialism and hope that SMS "bites".

1/ put up a thread about how stupid locals are
2/ put up a thread about how arrogant ex pats are
3/ put up a thread about how over paid your maid is

put up a thread that includes all of the above. Your first hurdle is getting it past the "wind up" spotters

Good luck

Tip no. 4

Do not let your thread drop off the 1st page of the subject list - like this 1 had before I posted this reply.

Rich and his cleavage again! I thought the discussion about cleavages should be limited to one of the threads in the forum. I guess if one has a cleavage like Rich which spills over...

Well, when you get to my age, you have to put the goods on show! But perhaps you're right, time to buy a pair of Harvest Festival trousers.

Harvest Festival? Of course, time to thank heavens that all is safely gathered in.
