I've been taking more notice of the counts lately....and would like some of you lurkers out there to post a response to this question.
What is it about a thread that makes you want to visit it frequently, thereby increasing the Views count?

And for those of you that fall in the Replies side, what is it about a thread that makes you post a response in the first instance? Why is it that some threads have a higher view:reply ratio than others and why is it that some threads just seem to go ballistic in the popularity stakes?
  • Do you take note of a catchy or not catchy thread name?
  • Do you take note of the Dis-name, if it is someone you know or not?
  • Do you open the thread and check the content before deciding to stick with it?
  • Does pictures or photos help?

Please come out of the woodwork to help with this straw poll!


My answer is ALL of the above and things close to my heart any animal threads I open and most I reply to Even started my own which is doing very well re-horse owners

I will be the voice of dissention (sp?). When I am a lurker, I only view the post once, unless I am somehow duped by a title change into viewing it a second time. After I read a sufficient amount, I decide whether or not to subscribe. If I choose not to subscribe, I don't come back, unless duped as described above.

  • Do you take note of a catchy or not catchy thread name?
A catchy thread name is like a pretty girl, once you dig deep you may or may not find any substance! I only read PTR's for people with whom I have followed a successful and fun TR, in fact your last PTR was the first I'd ever read. I could tell in your planning the LB section of your journey that you sounded like fun so I joined in. For a TR, DR or other thread, I read a little and if everyone sounds trendy, too young, waaaaaay to focused on their kids or just dull, well see above!

Quote:
  • Do you take note of the Dis-name, if it is someone you know or not?
As I am "getting to know" more DISers, I do take this into account. There are some people who I am learning are slightly annoying and I avoid them. On the DVC section there is a guy DVCMike who does GREAT pictoral TRs and has the most awesome pictures, I look out for his name a lot.

Quote:
  • Do you open the thread and check the content before deciding to stick with it?
I guess this is what I described in my first answer, also I read all the way through it before subbing unless it's a really good DR, I don't want to find out on page 7 that a bunch of lame people keep commenting back and forth ad nauseum.

Quote:
  • Does pictures or photos help?
Pictures are a must for a DR, no point if there is no food porn. I think photos along the way are a draw, but only if they help make the point of what you're trying to say, posting pictures of your dog because he's cute on your TR, makes me not want to click over to it as often and I'll just read the email links. And no Dana I don't mean you, the therapy dog is cute, I mean when every day there is yet another picture of your dog....

How's them answers?

That's me! I've had the original name and a change of name already. I hope to have a third change soon

After I read a sufficient amount, I decide whether or not to subscribe. If I choose not to subscribe, I don't come back, unless duped as described above.

For a TR, DR or other thread, I read a little and if everyone sounds trendy, too young, waaaaaay to focused on their kids or just dull, well see above!

I'm not quite sure how to take this...I'd like to think that, aside from sounding fun, I'm STILL trendy, young, focussed on my kid but definitely NOT dull!

As I am "getting to know" more DISers, I do take this into account. There are some people who I am learning are slightly annoying and I avoid them. On the DVC section there is a guy DVCMike who does GREAT pictoral TRs and has the most awesome pictures, I look out for his name a lot.

I'll have to keep an eye out for DVCMike...

I guess this is what I described in my first answer, also I read all the way through it before subbing unless it's a really good DR, I don't want to find out on page 7 that a bunch of lame people keep commenting back and forth ad nauseum.

Anyone else out there wanna play?? Happy for anyone to post a response....

More Shots....

Whilst still waiting for the United or united decision, here are a number of other shots that I love to partake in....as promised!

Double espresso or short black, with extra crema....



As opposed to....

Long Black (a double espresso with extra water)




And being decadent....

Cafe Macchiato. An espresso stained with a drop of milk (caldo or hot)




All of which are perfect to drink with Tira Misu, the perfect Pick Me Up!

You know, I've never actually had tira misu? I've heard it's good. Same with creme brulee.

I'm not a big fish eater, actually. I did try salmon when I was in Alaska and I just didn't like it. Maybe it was the way it was prepared, I don't know, but it made me feel kinda sick after

I plan on trying new things this trip, but with baby steps
