Default What makes a popular thread, and one the mods will leave in place

What makes a popular thread, that will be posted in alot ?


1, Make sure your thread is not too simmilar to other threads.
If they are too simmilar people will divide their posts between the two, lowering responces, and if we have too many similar ones, the forum has too many threads, and no one can find the subject they want to post in.
In addition, a member might simply think, I have already posted on that subject.
Mods will eventualy merge the 2 simmilar threads anyway, so you would no longer be the thread starter.

2, Make sure the title of the thread is a catchy and discriptive one.
For example, if your making a thread about whos the strongest in fate stay night.
Titles like 'whos the strongest' or 'who would you choose' or any random one will have less views.
This is because its confusing. That means people who would like to post on that subject, dont see it in forums and it cant be found in a surch.
So be precice in naming. I.E Whose the strongest Fate stay night character.

3, add small pictures.
For example, in our example thread 'Whose the strongest Fate stay night character' I would add some pictures of the characters with names.
This helps those who like the anime, but may be new to it.
Infact even a person who knows little of the subject can then post.


4, Make the thread starter post interesting and atractive.
Advertisers do it to get out attention, it works.
Some changes in colour/font. Even larger fonts for titles.
All thiese things not only make it more atractive, but also accessable to more people. If the main title and key points are in larger print, its less to read, and therfore easier to understand and so post.

5, keep the thread short and to the point.
Having as much of the question in the title helps alot.
Many threads fail because the title or first post does not explain clearly whats the question. Or because the first post covers too many questions.
These threads go off topic fast, then the next person finds it hard to continue the conversation, and doesnt post.
The truth is people dont usualy like reading long thread intros.
We also have peole here of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

6, Dont just copy a thread word for word from another site.
Its boring, and lowers our google rating, and therfore the value of the siteso mods will merge or edit it.

7, You can advertise your new thread on pages or fan groups.
This can help, but dont overspam people. Just a few friends/ fans.

8, Post in your thread yourself.
This helps it get on new posts.
Many members surf new posts and post in things that seem interesting that come up in new posts.

9, remove your signiture from the first post.
Sometimes its good to remove your signiture as I have done in the example below.
It can make a long intro post in a thread seem longer. {people do get bored scroling}
If you have text in your sig, it will confuse some people as to whats the thread text, and whats the sig text.
There is also a posibility a member could be mixed up about whats your sig pic and which are the thread starter pics.

10, use tags, and relivant tags.
Thes help it show up in a surch when a member is looking for your topic to post in.

11, get famous :P
Bit of a joke but theres some truth in it.
If your known for a certen kind of thread or post, or even well know from posting alot.
People will be more likely to look at your threads when they see who made it.
So get around the forums with posts, and get known.

12. Ask more open questions.
If a thread just says 'whats your faviourate animal' for example.
It will soon become a spam game thread.
e.g. first post 'cats'. next post. 'Dogs'..... etc.
It will then end up being moved to spam post games.
To avoid this, expand the question so you get more than a one or two word answer.
In this example to, whats your faviourate animal, and why?



------------------------------------------------------------


How to ensure mods keep your thread.
{new forum guidence, to be added}
Quote:
Making Threads.

Feel free to make any thread you want that fits in this forum.

We will try to keep your thread forever.
BUT, threads may be merged, or archived, once the initial conversation is over for the following reasons.
1, if the new thread is similar to or not different enough to existing threads.
2, duplicate material lowers the value of the site alot.
So if you just copy wiki when you make a thread, it will have to be removed.
3, if the thread or subject is not up to standard, or quality.

We may instead, edit the title or the first post,so that a search will work,or people can understand the question properly or clearly.

You wont loose points, and will be left usually to finish the discussion, before the thread is merged or archived. {except if the whole thread is an exact copy from the internet, where it will have to be deleted to protect the site.}

So feel free to make any new threads, and start any new discussions you want.
If you want to make a thread that will be here forever,
it needs to be different to existing threads, so check first, and needs to be of good quality

Default Re: What makes a popular thread, and one the mods will leave in place

{example - you dont even have to know about dbz to post in this one}

Which androids are your favourites?

Which do you hate the most?
What do you dislike or like about them?

Post here to talk about the androids of DB/Z/GT.

You can make a new android comment, or just join in the discussion if you like.

Here are a few examples to help us remember them all:


...Android 8................ Android 16.............. Android 20.................Perfect cell.......

A member asked, I thought it would be a good idea to make a thread and answer once

If anyone has any other tips, feel free to add them.

It's a good point to post this the anime forum is higher up the google search nowadays because of the selection of threads...

i remember when i first joined i searched "anime forum uk" and it was on the 2nd or 3rd page but now it's 5th place on the 1st page which is brilliant
