This is mine.
It ground to a halt after two comments (one of which came from me)
Let's see yours.
Perhaps that's your problem. If you'd said Brian Cox people would've been all over it like a rash.
He's the motorcycle lad they focused from TT3D.
So, yeah... a top lad. Guy Martin > Brian Cox
theres a valid reason for that though.
i didnt quite know what to make of it
otherwise i'd have been on board innit
I still maintain this is a laughable advert.
~ Another Great Thread... from GeOff! ~
boom. successful thread. get out and stay out.
It had the potential to be a provocative and sublime discussion but no... it was ignored.
Could've been on my way to a maiden double hundred with that thread. Boundless appeal.
that you can't add to the threads. We need to leave them as snapshots of failure.
To be honest I only remember being nearly in tears at my desk that an animal as lordly as Sgt. Stubby got given such short shrift but I'm finding a whole lot of them that were equally as unpopular. Stupid dogs
wasnt there something about putins dog scarring clare short or something?
I think it is a good series.
It would have been poetic or something.
Mine was the first thread I started, which had word for word the same title as a thread that had been posted a couple of days previously that I hadn't seen. Good start that.
But reveling in your own failure is just too tempting to resist.
so when I do they're usually gold and get hundreds of replies. However I was most disappointed this did have more legs:
I mean, I started a thread about analogue to digital converters that received more replies. I suppose these days if I started that thread there'd be at least be an extra 'Jay Z's Laugh' reply.
Half of the responses to anything I make are posts calling me a dick or slagging off my footwear
I'm sure I've started really boring threads on the music board asking things like "is there a Festive 50 this year?" but that is a specific question that could be answered quickly so I wasn't expecting a great number of replies.
I had great things in mind for that thread: other celebrities faces that you hate, a subthread on how bad Run, Fatboy, Run was. I suppose it was my own fault for not actually posting again in but that's for losers like thewarn who artificially boost the popularity of their threads by constantly replying to them.
but I've definitely had some zero reply parody threads.
cos mine suck. especially the one and only relationship thread where i said it wasn't a case of needing to man the fuck up and then guntrip told me to man the fuck up and everyone agreed.
It's like brusma telling you you're boring.
those were dark days
i remember when i first started posting here a mod pulled up a list of the top ten 'thread killers' (last people to post in the thread) and i was no 1.
take your pick
but my annual 'The yyyy John Peel Festive 50 Nostalgia Thread's are probably my least successful because, even though they do get a few replies, I always put loads of effor in to them and always imagine I'll get hundreds.
This one recently bombed.
I just can't believe it.
It always leads to heartache.
You watch, no-one else will reply here now.
it was my first thread.
thankfully the girls entertained me.
I still want the tefal toast n egg.
10 replies is a smash. I would be very, very happy with that.
To be honest it confused me so much that I decided to do some work instead.
People failed my threads
specifically the world series of poker. nobody cares
