I said this earlier in the Post:
|Zero Replies section also lets me know what topics people are not interesting to Members, so that the Bots or I do not start more of them.|
1 - I try to check zero replies every two days.
2 - I usually replay to one or two when I check them. just what grabs my attention...as fleeting as it is.
3 - I found the zero replies in the first week.
When I first started, I never ventured into the Zero Replies page. I think one day, (after being a member for about two months) I accidentally clicked on it and I was amazed to see so many new topics. I may go through each one, depending on my mood or sometimes, I may search for a thread to provide a response but not on a regular basis. Overall, I usually go for the "HOT" topics button rather than the Zero Replies. So to be honest, I hardly ever check the Zero replies button.
I would think that the zero replies is an indicator of the attractiveness of the topic to the community. I know that when I create a topic and do not receive any replies, it is disappointing and tends to temper my future introduction of similar topics. So it is a useful tool for me in measuring what the community determines is constructive, if you will.
I was just looking at Zero Replies and we are up to 313 pages! We need to get that down everyone. Please visit there and respond to the many interesting unanswered Topics you find there. Thanks!
I look at it every now and then but a lot of the topics there I have no clue about let alone be able to answer or reply to some of them. Especially the ones about a certain culture and the many threads that it includes.
That's the fun thing about INTERNATIONAL Discussions. You can search out the answer and try and tackle it. Granted that there are some Topics I would not know where to start with either, but making the attempt by looking for quotes, sources, definitions etc might earn you some Charm and respect from peers for the extra effort. Speaking collectively for all and not just you.
