    Intersting Observation

    Posted a technical problem on the Mechanics Forum. In 30 minutes I had maybe 10 views and one responce. A Lance Armstrong Yellow bracelet thread is posted and in 2 minutes had 20 views and multiple posts. Just an interesting observation nothing really more.

    You shoulda posted the tech question here. You'd have got more responses and almost all of them equally useless.

    That's because it was a technical question. Not everyone is qualified to answer. If you have an opinion post anybody with fingers can reply.

    And even then, a lot of people aren't qualified to have an opinion...

    maybe your technical question should have had a Lance reference in it

    The first response was in ten minutes and was most likely, based on the info given, the correct answer. Most of the mechanic guys do not weigh in just reiterate the same answer.

    ... and in Foo there are NO correct answers.

    Just a gathering of blathering, lackluster, cerebrialy challenged malcontents pontificating with grandiose verbosity.

    Thats why they invented spoiler topics
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
    "Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
    So many sayings, so little sig space.

    Stacey once pointed out that typically, threads get about one reply for every ten views. The OP's observations aren't that strange in that regard.

    As for how quickly those views/posts come, well, some subforums are much more active than others. And certain topics are sure-fire ways to get lots of views.
