You do not create good threads. They just happen. It does not matter how long you have been here, you can still make some duds when it comes to threads. Occasionally a new person comes around who creates something legendary like ORLF!!!@123

Not unless n0e looses them in another "archival"

Luck, one needs not. Understanding and input, young Buboy2008 needs. Legendary threads do, like Pethegreat said, just happen. But they can't just happen to any thread. Before you make a new thread, if you want or expect it to become legendary, you must make sure that you provide enough input and questions to the other readers, so that their interest is sparked, hopefully enough to start some sort of discussion (be it a heated debate, ridiculous bantering, or just common tom-foolery).

I wouldn't call myself a veteran but there is no real way of creating a good thread, the only logical way I could think of is just making a topic which is the hype of the time.

That'll work for a little while, but it'll die when the next big hype thread is made.

Thank you Sir Homer, I'll keep that in mind. And by the way, you really does sound like Master Yoda. Just kidding.

Go to the spam forums and come up with a very good thread, it's the easiest place to get a thread that will get people posting in it.

Post count doesn't count for anything in regard to whether a thread is successfull or not. I started my Ask-A-Wiener thread when I had under 500 posts, and it's still going on today. Even that was a copy of an idea of another thread, though I didn't know it at the time.
