Although I'm only 0-19 on my latest thread over in the Basic Writing Questions area, I was wondering how close I am to the record.

Here's the place to list some of your worst threads as far as board responses. Who knows, maybe one of them will finally catch on.

(Wouldn't it be ironic if this thread went unanswered as well)?

I seem to be better at killing threads than starting dead ones...

It seems to be all in the title. SK put puppies and kittens and BOOBS into my rather ordinary thread title, and suddenly it had more than one response...

I dont pay attention to stats like that. But until Vixey revived my old thread about My hypothetical book signing, that didn't garner even ONE response for 3 years.

Oh, I found this one (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=97156) where I'm 0 for 34 on.

(Now the post is meaningless because google view got rid of the scene. It was a pic of an actual drug deal going down that was caught by the GoogleView camera.)

That brings to mind the question of the greatest distance between one post and another on a given thread. In my experience, once a thread leaves the first page of the New Post area, it's pretty much gone for good.

I wonder if this is sort of your signature post.

Just an attempt at humor.

Office Party usually has new posts on the first two pages, but in other forums, that's true enough.
