  • ~*Honestly*~... I do feel bad that normal things get little to no attention while "Drama" posts usually by Anon people get tons??? Makes no sense... as for being like high school, many have yet to out grow that... hahaha... seen people in RL that still act like they were in grade school

  • Nope. The only time I really worry about replies is when I actually need advice on something with my son or a recipe or something, lol.

  • I have noticed that some screen names get more feed back then others....but sometimes it has to do with the wording of the question..anyway to answer the question I do feel bad because I have been there and needing real answers and when nobody replies it feels like nobody is interested

  • I try not to take any of it personally. It could just be that some people are interested in different things that I am, and sometimes I think it depends what time of day I post a question--or if it's a subject that could fit in a couple different categories, maybe it would have had more replies in another section.

    I have noticed that when I post something that's positive or implies we all have a lot of similarities, those questions get very few replies. If I post a question about something controversial or a topic that typically divides people, I often get pages and pages of answers from all different perspectives and people debating points with each other. People like--or at least are more likely to respond to drama. Very few seem to like the positive, feel good posts. Oh well. LOL

  • Different categories see more traffic at different times of day. Some only see a lot of people on weekends. The only time I've seen a single question stay empty in an otherwise busy section, it's either not real clear or it's a duplicate of another question that's on the same page.
