I realized the other day that I hadn't started any threads recently -- since March actually -- so I thought I'd float this one out there for another early demise. :)

This is my 47th thread.

I've only started 5 (including this one) in 2007.
I started 21 in 2006
and 21 in 2005.

(I guess I need to start 16 more this year to keep up the "21" trend).

The thread most visited: "What makes for a great fantasy" (2,728 views)

The thread most posted: "PC Language & Disrespectful Words" (141 responses)

I've killed 12 of my own threads.

A large number of my earlier threads were kindly asked not to be duplicated (Love Battles - LOL...Jenna was the ultimate queen).

All in all, not impressive stats...but that's okay. :)

So....what's your thread stats?

Take care all -

Hehe how's that for advertising.


37 threads started, the most responses 108 on my dirty confessions thread. :)

57. My biggest response (400-something) was "post the first three sentences of your WIP."

How do you determine how many threads you've started?

Forty. And a couple are rather embarrassing. Maybe I should flounce.

How do you determine how many threads you've started?

Go to your own profile. Click on 'see all threads started by...' and the number will show on the right-hand side of your screen, beside all the page numbers (assuming your thread list stretches to more than one page).

Also found it under Search->Advanced Search->Find Threads by User.

64 threads started, with the most active being "Horse Sense" with 347 replies and 9,146 views.

Note: I don't think this is counting all threads started under password protected forums like SYW.

A mere 14.


How do you determine how many threads you've started?Look at your user profile. It has a link to "find all thread started by..."

And then there's that one birthday thread... that one was a corker, KTC. It should count for at least two. Maybe four.

I've done 129... most of 'em in auctions. Longest, most viewed was the auction where we sold Mac's avatar: 300 posts, over 7100 views. Cha-ching!

500 currently listed, but i think that's what it maxes out at.

i'm guess that the one with 8,655 replies is the most. not going to spend the time to look.

Only 67. That's funny, I would have thought it was more. Delusions of grandeur.

Lol! My hottest thread only generated 300 replies. I don't even want to know how many of them are by me. I think I'm just gonna go be quiet now...

I've started 55 threads.

My best was "My new pet peeve..." in the Romance/Women's Fiction Forum, with 216 replies and 3,431 visits. :)

The worst? "Dispatches from the Edge by Anderson Cooper" in the Book Club Forum. 0 replies and 80 views. You guys really should read it...it's a fantastic book! :D

Ha ha! Now THAT is funny!

That Kevin is sure hyper this week. Too much caffeine, too much sugar.

Shh, don't tell Kevin.

Seriously, I have started more than 500, with the most successful one being the House of Love with almost 40,000 replies. I'm proud.

I have started very few, but am increasingly perturbed by the number that I seem to stop.. dead. Ah well.

I may not have started many threads but I was the inspiration for a popular thread..."Royalty for a Week". Over 10,000 posts, over 101,000 replies--all because of my cancelled Love Battles. Jenna started it after the Battles ended. <sigh>

A few of you commented about the numbers - either surprised by the low or high amount of threads you've started. Honestly, I was surprised too by my number. I knew I hadn't started any in a while, but I didn't realize it had been 5 months since my last one and that in the last 2 1/2 years, I'd only started 47.

I should quit wasting time and get back to writing. The kids are asleep and I'm still awake (mostly) so I really, really, really should be writing....

Let's see...92 threads started!

My most replied to thread only had 49 replies, though, so I'm not very impressive.

Twenty-four. I thought it was a lot less.

Oh yeah Kevin, you've started some real quality threads.

Look! You can see my nosehairs!

I'm high as a kite today! Wheeee!

There's a fish stalking me!

Those would make some interesting titles for novels....

Yes, you're right!

I bet people would buy them just based on the titles.

"I just gotta find out what's so interesting about that guy's nose hairs."

"Someone is being stalked by a fish? Weird. Gotta read that one."

"Someone is being stalked by a fish? Weird. Gotta read that one."

I can just imagine the jacket cover for the 'nose hair' book....

;)

Of course, some might think the 'There's A Fish Stalking Me' book is a rip-off of Jaws...talk about the original stalking fish!...but that's okay.

So..there you go, KTC, four book titles/ideas for you. You're welcome. :)

So...while checking on how many threads you've started, have you come across any old ones you've considered resurrecting?

My most-replied to threads were 3-word-posts in the Writing Exercises and Prompts section, but I don't know if those count.

Aside from those, the most popular one was Equal Time for Women: Who's Your Hunk of Choice? Followed closely by Will You Be Watching? (the President's address to the nation)

And no, I like to come up with different ones. For variety.

187 threads, but 96 of them were poems up for Crit or body of work threads for other poets.

I resurrected an old "Who's your favorite character" that was originally dumped in TIO two years ago...it should be moved out of there eventually (that should make KTC happy - lol)
