So very many READERS yet so very few CONTRIBUTORS on the boards (33)

My diagnosis : there's a hell of a lot of voyeuristic perverts out there?

C'mon in ... make yourselves heard !

eg There's one thread I just glanced at almost 1200 views, only 71 posts and many of those are the same people posting and replying more than once !

p.s.s If you get ribbed a bit don;t fret ... just have a laugh about it and craic on !

yay yay yay peace peace peace beer

The view counter counts number of views, not number of viewers. So if you have a dialogue in a thread, you'll be count as a view every time you click on it to answer.

Then there are tread titles that don't give clear insight into the subject of the tread and people click on it to find out what it is about. Upon reading the OP they might decide that they are not interested to participate.

There are undoubtably many valid points of view regarding your statements. In my particular case, when my participation is not respected or validated (not necessarily agreed with, though), and most assuredly hammered with mean or nasty rhetoric, I split. I think that’s also the case with many others. So you may see far more “views” than responses. Generally, people don’t like being “battered”, and that occurs rather frequently, I’m afraid. I mean, do you patronize shops and cafes where the staff is rude and hateful? Personally, I don’t see negativity (here) as whimsical, funny, or even thought-provoking in any way, because even if there were something to glean from it, its wrecked by the rotten debris around it. Haven’t got time...

I've noticed the more popular threads get around a 10% response to views ratio.
But, like someone mentioned, the number of views doesn't represent the amount of individuall people watching the thread.
Also, many might not be members and are unable to respond.

But yes, a lot of lurking going on.

uh oh

There are so many babies chucking their toys out of their prams on this site I don't bother to post that often at all especially the political ones where there are some nasty people people who think the person they like is god and the other person is the devil.

Also 10% posts per topic is good going as another forum I am on is about 1/2% per topic.

Hello rohann, I don't quite get it either as it was explained in detail a few reasons that people do not care to join in or post...Sad, I know...and me signing in only to find my two threads have been Deleted (I Guess) because of a couple of people showing low quality posts to them that were totally a couple of Sickos. doh mumbling

It is a shame that so many interesting topics that are put on threads here; where we all can learn, comment, and so forth. Many just come to sabotage a topic, get some laughs on their own ground.
When things get interesting that's when they come; it seems these people do not have any other thing to do. Years ago it was much better.
So the community here in CS should be open, more respectful of other's opinions. If it is not of your interest move on. Don't shed your evil ways here to make someone else uncomfortable.
