Most Threads seem to have more people viewing them then actually posting comments .

So are you a poster or a viewer ?

If you tend to view threads more , Is there something that stops you joining in the topic ?

I tend to post a fair bit like you Kenny but also sometimes I just have a read and move on. If there's a war-of-words underway I'll try to avoid that and step in to try and quell things... otherwise I won't post if I don't know enough on the subject.

So I'm probably 75% post, 25% view. What about you?

Outside of American Football I'm pretty much just a viewer, there's always going to be more views than posts because you have to view the page twice to post on it once.

Viewer I think. I prefer reading to talking most of the time.

Bit of both really sometimes there's stuff I don't know enough to offer opinion or not show a huge interest in.

Ratio of views to posts varies quite widely between different posts.... sometime it's 10:1

But it can be much bigger differential - for instance 13 posts to 670+ views on the off topic thread of what's the most interesting thing about you. But that could be due to 606v2 members being inherently modest (or perhaps accurate Whistle) about how fascinating they are to other people...

Does the viewing number not get automatically blown on a thread because you revisit a thread?

Example, you post a comment, and go back 7 times to read posts until you have something to say again.

So you may have contributed 2 or 3 posts on a thread, but went back 20 times to read comments?

Without having done any great research I would suggest that a ratio of about 10 views for every post is probably about a "par" score for participation.

As the number of posts would suggest i post alot , but do tend to stick to certain threads unless of course i have an opinion on something then i will add to another thread.

Another great thing about this site is the General Discussion/Off Topic section. You can't help but love the fact that one minute you are agreeing with a Man Utd fan in the football section, the next minute you are bickering with another poster over why you think 9/11 was an inside job, the minute after that you are ranking an 80's classic film and a minute after the minute after (!) you are co-writing a world class limerick. I highly doubt that life can get better!

I think I swing both ways Laugh I do read a lot of things but don't comment - either because i don't want to get involved or I just think it's not my place to comment. I do also comment on a few things too.

A view to a post. Or 2 posts per view.

Depending how you look at it.

Too many viewers and not enough posting is my observation. Threads need posts to get things moving.

1:10 is about right for a board moving at a decent pace. From what I've seen a lot of threads here are more like 1:30. What are people afraid of?

I do my bit redressing the imbalance by posting when I don't really have a clue what I'm on about.
