Forums With only Old Content
« on: June 24, 2016, 05:02:02 PM »
I've been working Postloop and lately I've been noticing that some of the forums don't have new content.  I have to search hard for something to comment on because of the lack of new threads.  It's frustrating because I feel bad just posting new threads just to talk about something new.  But I also don't like commenting twice or more on the same thread unless I can add something new to it.  Have you guys had the same problem.

Yes, I usually leave those forums for a few days and then go back. Sadly, there are only so many new threads you can start, and when a topic is rehashed, you wonder whether to repeat what you wrote in an earlier post.

If I can't add to the forum I won't, because it's not worth it as some owners will just rate badly.

I tend to find the same thing, particularly with forums that have been on there for a while. It seems as if the longer a forum is on there for the longer it seems to take for new content to post on to appear. I've also noticed that my new threads are simply getting deleted on some of those as well and I'm told to post on old threads, but I've already posted on pretty much everything on the site, so I end up giving up with some of them. Which is a shame because I enjoy posting on them.

I have also encountered such forums, about two. What surprises me is that when you start a new thread, you find other members commenting on it and you wonder why they don't start new threads. I think the administrators or the mods don't enhance this policy and the contributors are not into it. Starting a new thread requires more mental input than replying to old threads. Another problem with these forums is that most of the older threads which you can reply to are closed or do not get credited.

What forums are you talking about? I noticed that on the bbq forum, but that's offline right now. Either cases we can always start new threads...
