I do this sometimes but only if I have an answer.  But I do try harder on those posts to come up with an answer.

I’ve done it many times and then when I don’t get any responses after mine I consider myself to be the thread killer 🙁

Yeah.  I notice a lot of threads with newer people sometimes get ignored (maybe not intentionally or maliciously).  So I try to give some support or ideas.  I feel badly when people have to bump their threads.  I try to start threads when I know when a lot of bees are online.  That’s usually between 9 am-1pm or 5pm-9pm.

I’m a sucker for a lonely little thread.  I sometimes stay away from the ones with tons of posts if I don’t want to read them all because I hate just saying whatever 10 people before me have also said.

@SapphireSun:  Yeah.  I sometimes get lazy and don’t want to read it and usually those are the threads that end up with people arguing and it’ll just rile me up.

missbitsnpieces – post it now as there seem to be plenty of people on here.

Where i’ve been the first to contribute and I don’t know much about the topic of the thread I start off saying I may be of no help etc. I felt a little lonely when I posted pics of me when i’d found my dress, There were plenty of people on here, so I just presumed they either didn’t want to comment on a dress thread or didn’t think I looked that great.

@CatyLady: I think posts like that are difficult.  There’s really no options to post other than “whoo hoo!”, and I sometimes get nervous that people are going to be like… why did she bother posting just to be like “looks great, good for you!”

@Prewitt: I know what you mean. My very first post was when I had picked up my dress and I only got a few comments.  Although later I realized it was because I posted it later at night (I had to go two hours to get the dress so I didn’t get home until later and couldn’t wait to post it Smile).

@mandb122:

I think me being in the UK doesn’t help either because of the time difference. Two hours – did you try on some but go back to one you’d found on the internet? Actually i’ll have a look at your posts and see if I can see it.

As a newbee, I appreciate the helpful comments on the smaller threads, so thanks 🙂  And I think the post time does have a lot to do with it. I’ve noticed that some threads seem take off because of the amount of people online when the post goes to the board.

Actually I did.  I found one on the internet I absolutely loved.  I went to a few dress shops nearby and I was bored everywhere I went.  So I found the dress two hours away and drove up that day and didn’t want to take it off.  That store also gave us a quicker ship date with the same price so we ordered it there (in all fairness though it’s only 30-40 minutes from my mom’s house and his parent’s house so it wasn’t really out of the way – we just made a day of going to see our families).

Thats really cute of you! I don’t think I do, I just write on whatever I have something to say too, but maybe I will from now on! 😛

Oh I do it all the time especially when there are 0 replies. I feel so bad and even if I can help or answer the question I bump the thread up.
