DiSers who are good at running (not ruining) a thread once they've started it


#1

Big fan of how @Antpocalypsenow runs his threads. The mints thread is a masterpiece.

Also a fan of how @ma0sm gives a like to pretty much every reply in a thread he creates. @xylo does something similar.

@witches’ enthusiasm is always a winner.

Any others?

What a kindly thing to say. Much appreciated.


#3

oh wow thank you!

i mean i also tend to keep threads going by becoming a pretending-to-be-the-victim antagonist sometimes but its fine because i’m precious

pls teach me to be better at this
usually turn my computer off after starting a thread


#5

Yeah I’d actually forgotten I’d started this thread until I got the notifications


#6

What distances are we talking here?


#7

100+ replies


#8

actually, at least 50. or 30 on the music board


#9

would you say you’re going to put more effort into running this thread than you normally would?


#10

Outlook not good


#11

So far it’s a corker.


#12

I was hoping for some other people to maybe nominate DiSers who run a good thread. It’s not really happened yet though. I have confidence that we might get somewhere once the preamble is out of the way.


#13

Old @whatserface is good at it. I like how @thingy runs theirs too.


#14

Not… playing … Devil’s Advocate…?


#15

jacqueslebicsuit used to be good at it back on old dis


#16

He’s still knocking around as @Meatsqueak isn’t he?


#17

oh right. hi jacques


#18

aha there’s a subtle nuance. one gets you banned. one gets you 300 replies.

I, ADVOCATE?


#19

Mostly just after really specific scraps


#20

I feel I’m quite good at keeping a thread going but only if it’s a chance for me to be difficult and argue something ridiculous to the death.
