    How come when I post a topic, I only get one or two responses and it never ends up on the message board when we get our daily or every other day updates? Other people's topic end up on the main board and mine gets buried in the other topics. I have posted several topics and haven't ever seen them on the main page. Is it a timing issue or does someone decide what is deemed worthy of the other posting page? Just wondering?

    My guess would be that it depends on how many posts are made on the topic, or it could be how many views. I am sure a moderator will come along and tell us. You could pm one of the moderators and ask if noone has the answer.

    Hmmm... I dont know. Dont take it personally Ive posted several times too and mine never show either (on the newsletter) no biggie. As far as just getting a couple of responses, Im not sure what could be going on there. Feel free to PM me anytime if you have a question :) Im not a pro, but if I can I will most certainly help you :):) take care!

    The reason I'm wondering is because yesterday's posting had some pictures that also showed up in todays message board. Many of these topics or show and tell pictures have 14-18 pages of responses. It's weird.

    Maybe some subjects are just more interesting than others.

    Not sure, was wondering the same thing...

    but I looked at my topics and look at views and posting, getting a lot of views and not posting, so I'm sure it has to do with who all comments! But that's just my opinon..I'm fairly new to this board too!

    Only the most active topics show up on that newsletter. I don't think I have had one there either.
    There is no discrimination or favorites. Though a lot of the folkes on here have made a lot of friends so their topics may get visited more.

    Main Page??? always go to Unread topics and then to check on one's that I have answered I will check read topics.

    I agree with Jim's Gem...I also think it has to do with the sheer volume of postings this board gets....I "check in" pretty much daily and I still miss heaps and if I keep spending an hour or so a day here, I'm never going to be able to finish my quilts. Don't forget we are international...so not everyone's up and about at the same times. You may not always get comments, but check out views....some people are shy, maybe can't be online much, or just can't keep up with "watched topics".

    I always go to Unread topics and then check my inbox for watched topics. I don't think Main is any more special than any other area...In fact if you look at the view rate on Pictures - you would find it gets a bigger hit rate.
    Quilters are very visual/tactile people!

    Anyway, there's my five cents worth (even with your currency today I believe). Keep posting and happy quilting.
