    doesnt matter where the hell the thread started as long as two or more people get into a spat somewhere along the way (more common in d and d or h and r) or if it's in GC as long as two or more poepl start flirting with eachother... :rolleyes:

    I think you have to appeal to as many people as possible. In the subscriber forums there are a few very popular threads, one with over 15,000 replies! Which just happens to be the moaning thread, were everyone can complain.

    I seem to make quite popular threads. Just say something a bit random which most people will feel the need to comment on, I guess.

    Leave to simmer for a week
    Garnish with smilies
