    Depends on which subforum they're posted in - threads in areas like Chat may get more views, but less replies if it's something really specific than it'd get if it was posted in the right place.

    Also, every new reply bumps the thread to the top of the 'latest discussions' widget, so more people will see the active one, leading to more activity.

    No doubt there's a lot more to it than that, but they're definitely two big factors. :yes:
