How to make threads on UG

Views: 130
Comments: 5

I noticed some discussion on my threads on UG, and it basically said "His threads suck and they still get a ton of replies."

Well, here's why.

First, why do I make threads: I log on to UG, and none of the discussions particularly interest me. So I make one that does. End of story.

Now, why do they tend to often exceed 100 replies or more? Because I usually consider these things:

- The thread promotes discussion and banter between users.

- The thread is about a topic users would actually be interested in.

- I also make sure my OP doesn't have any typos or unintended sexual innuendo for the thread to get derailed.

- Sometimes I make a thread where UGers can talk about their feels. I had one that was really successful where we shared stories of times we made dumbasses of ourselves with girls we like.

Basically after considering that stuff, I make the thread. Sometimes I make threads that have nothing to do with any of that, and usually I'm making it for a personal reason and it doesn't exceed more than a few replies.

I still think you're one of the best thread starters in the pit

i think one of the main reasons yr threads always garner 100+ replies is because they're madcap threads. i like most of yrs but i find the whole madcap cliche to be amusing.

I guess, but at this point I feel like I read more criticism about my threads than praise.

On another note, I've noticed the people who dislike my threads the most are people who make a lot of threads themselves.

I dislike your threads, and I certainly don't make many threads other than birthday threads. Actually, I kind of hate all the hate on your threads because I was the first one to actually start hating on your threads like almost a year and a half ago. Everyone was all like "why are you hating on his threads" but then now those people are hating on your threads as well.
