    Reply/view 50+ thread ratios - significant?

    Some longer-standing 50+ threads run a very high reply/view ratio, while others have much lower ratios. Is there any significance to this? If so, what?



    For example:

    Sticky: 50+ Racing/training for racing Thread

    Replies: 687
    Views: 7,658

    ratio - 1:11


    Sticky: Special Thread For 50+yo Bicyclists

    Replies: 1,118
    Views: 81,353

    ratio: 1:72


    did you ride today

    Replies: 5,180
    Views: 103,040

    Ratio: 1:20


    Did you exercise today? (other than biking)


    Replies: 122
    Views: 914

    ratio 1:7.5


    If you can answer this, would you kindly explain to me the meaning of life?

    So, the ultimate ratio would be

    1:42 ?

    How many gear inches would that be?

    The meaning of life depends on the topic.

    Some like to read. Some like to type. Some even enjoy doing both.

    Lots of people are on the path to become 50+ but are to chicken to admit it. The rest of us don't have a choice as we've arrived.

    It means that different threads have different read/write ratios. As to the meaning of life, only humans maintain the fantasy that it has to have meaning.

    I tend to reply more frequently to threads w/ short reply lists than to those which have been beaten into the ground. This would affect my personal view/reply ratio.

    A whole new area of research. The zen of personal view/reply ratios.
