    What is the "key" to making a great thread?
    Advice and inspiration would be appreciated.

    About the same way the movies work. Sex and violence subjects seem to work well. Slagging off Thailand is a sure winner. Oh and the blockbusters are always ones that criticize merika!

    Start up a slagging match. Not a bad enough one to get moved to MKP, but enough to get people a bit passionate...

    Yep, you need it.

    Try not posting one/two line inane questions and work from there.

    But to answer you're question you first need to decide what a great thread is. It could be a wonderful travel or building thread with pictures and the chance to learn through others' real life experiences, or it could be CMN muttering on about teenage TV shows.

    a good blow by blow account of a disastrous relationship is always popular.

    eg Scampy and Sandra, NickA and a block of wood etc

    I tried my best with a Cornish Pasty thread but it just didn't capture the imagination of TD members

    How do you define a good thread? Quantity before quality?

    i just unwrapped an interesting gold wrapped sweety , popped it in my mouth and realised it was a Knorr stock cube after I bit into it. Then i spat it out again in disgust. There will be interrogations tomorrow to find out who sabotaged the sweet bowl in the fridge.

    i thought you may find this faintly amusing but decided it didn't deserve its own thread. Excuse me for a minute while I brush my teeth.

    Smear a TV or Ajarn mod, that seems to work well.

    The Title is important, even with crap content it will pull off - have a look at CMN's drivel.

    Nice picture threads attract greens, but not many responses.

    Scampy would definately have used this as the basis for a century thread.

    I like the fact that my linux thread is well into it's second century and i didn't even open it.

    way to go mods, great split.

    A great thread would be one where I couldn't possibly add any of my usual dribble
