I really don't want this to seem like a rant, but rather a legitimate question to which I seek an answer. I won't post an example in the OP for now
because I don't want to point fingers or blame anyone, but this is something that has piqued my interest, so here it is.
Why is it that someone can post a thread about a video or piece of news and receive little to no replies, only for someone else to open a new thread
days or months later and receive an overwhelming response from the community and even make the front page? I don't want to just blame it on "not
using the search function" but rather would like to know how this sort of phenomena occurs. Is it how one writes the title of the thread and how much
it grabs another users attention?
Again, I don't want to seem like this is a flame post, but perhaps I am a tad jealous that some threads I post don't get noticed and are only a page
long only for the exact same topic or video to be covered again and the receive 60 plus flags? How does this happen? (I mean this in an honest way, as
in is there an explanation for this phenomenon?) I know I'm not the only victim of this, so I don't want this to be a pity party.
So ATS, can someone explain this phenomenon?
