Watching your new topic fall away due to inactivity
Only time I’ve been annoyed was when I posted pics of a prototype full sus fat bike from Intense (I don’t even like the bloody things), no one showed any interest and it disappeared without a post. Several weeks later, someone else posted about it and loads of people were all over it like flies. The temptation to post a link to my previous lonely ‘single’ thread was strong, but like a man, I let it go. 🙂Posted 2 years agometalheartSubscriber
It’s not without a little trepidation I reply to this as not only do a large percentage of my threads disappear without a single ****ing reply but me replying to thread is usually a que for the tumble weeds to descend….
However one small recompense is I was able to sneak in a tattoo thread the other week without any of the usual mayhem ensuing (and my question answered to boot!)

I thought this thread would get the geeks of STW going ooh.

It is when you are a thread killer that gets me down.
You post something insightful, or witty, and nobody replies after it.
Or when you are just too far ahead of your time. That’s my personal curse. Post a thread about something no one’s heard of, but you know in a years time there’ll be a hugely successful thread about it.
And where will the “already a thread bout it, try using search“ pedants be then? Nowhere. They won’t help.Posted 2 years agoBruceWeeMember
I think it’s worse when you get one response and it’s something along the lines of
Despite the fact that your post was only two lines long I haven’t actually read what you wrote. However, I did scan it and picked up on a couple of words I recognised so here are my thoughts on those words even though that’s not what you asked.
You then reply saying “Thanks but that’s not actually what I asked.” and then your thread disappears never to be seen again.Posted 2 years agowwaswasSubscriber
What’s the etiquette on starting new ones but not spamming?
No more than once in 24 hours.
For ever if necessary…
