    What is your best thread, and what is your worst thread? A little confusing, let me explain a bit more...

    What is your best thread? This means a thread you've started that has the most posts in it.

    What is your worst thread? This means a thread you've started that has the least posts in it.

    Here's my best thread (so far)
    • Get Rid of That King! (with a total of 51 replies so far).

    Here're my worst threads (so far)
    • Fran Brill's Commercial
    • Now That the Eds are more popular than in 1999...
    • Playing With Dolls
    • What do you think of Demi Moore's plastic surgery?
    • "The Seesaw Girl and Me: A Memoir" by Dick York
    • The original Sesame Street set
    • A Couple of things ironic about today's episode...
    • Pictures
    • "Tut, Tut Telly-Telly Tut"
    • Some Play With Me Sesame Questions
    • Could someone give me this...
    all with the total of 0 replies. Some of these mind you go all the way back to 2003, when I joined.

    Now then, what are you best threads, and worst threads?

    D'snowth; you an' me could be called the Thread Killas! The best thread I ever started was "Lot's of MP3s, Wanna' trade?" my worst threads are personal defeats; almost all my fan art threads, sadly; barely anyone commented on them. :cry:

    Sorry to double post, but I just looked and this is the only thread I started that got no replies:
    Jim Mentioned In Lucas' New Book
    I thought it was interesting.

    Oh this is easy. I've started a whole two threads. So my best would be my fanfic, "Destination: Home." My worst would be the other one. I think it was something like "Really Bad Night". Don't recall exactly, it was basically me venting, good to ignore.

    My favorite thread started by moi has to be a tie between Moppet Family, and Swaehb.

    The worst...hm....would have to think a little more. But maybe one of those ones I start, asking, "Why has Beau no voice no more" and no one can ever answer that questian....
  10. Princeton

    Princeton Guest

    Can't think of any "worst", but here's some of my favs:

    -Muppets Tonight Characters (my very first one)
    -When Dave Retires(one of my newer ones)
    -Favorite Number Songs(my most popular CSS thread)
    -Here's My Sob Story(used to be ashamed of this one, but y'all really helped me)
    -Favorite Avenue Q Songs
    -Pet Peeves 2004(very necessary, I thought; we need to get "celebrity circuit" issues off our chests)
    -Changes in Mokey's personality(the unsung hero of this thread was clearly Boober_Gorg, he gave a flawless analysis of Mokey from various episodes)
  11. That Announcer

    That Announcer Well-Known Member

    My best thread so far is "How's the weather where you are?". Second is "The Weekly Survey".

    My worst is "On The Buses", over in General Discussion. TWO replies- and one was mine, telling Phillip to wipe it!

    Maybe, oh well, at least I'm treated well here. BTW, I think your fanart is very cool, it's just that Fan Fics and Fan Art is one of the forums here I rarely go to.

    Update for me! Now, my best thread is: Boy, is this forum dead today or what?, with a total of 55 replies.

    Well I just checked the list of threads I've started. Out of 26 threads all have received at least one reply except for one, so that's pretty neat. So that one that got no responses would be my worst thread so far. And it kind of surprises me that it flopped so bad. It's called "Talking about the muppets outside of this site." Since we're all such big muppet fans I was curious if anyone else like me ever talks about them outside of this site, such as with friends, family, or at school or work. Maybe I just posted it at a bad time and then it soon got lost in the shuffle (cuz sometimes I've noticed a particular thread will get no responses but then if someone a long time later revives it [or the person who started the thread itself adds to it later] then suddenly an avalanche of posts pour in.
    And the best thread so far is "Cookie Monster 'eating healthier' in the news". Just a modest 22 replies, but a big 836 total views. The "wisdom teeth" one comes in second with 19 replies. That was nice to get that many, just as it's nice to see any threads regarding health, concerns, etc. generate quick and frequent posts. Shows the friendly and caring muppet spirit here!
    By the way, D'Snowth, I'm proud to have revived the "Green Acres" thread you started last year and turn it into a pretty active one (though you and I account for 26 of the 32 posts! heh heh heh )!

    Another correction. "Boy, is this forum dead today or what?" now has a total of 62 replies. That's most replies I ever gotten for one thread.

    Matt's Greatest Hits...or failures. whatever.

    Unfortunately, my favorite thread was wiped out when the site purged the old games section, so, here are a few of "Matt's Greatest Hits." Or...failures. First, the failures, as they are much, much better (and by 'better,' I really mean 'lamer.' :zany: Lamer IS a word, right? Oh well, let's all take a trip down memory lane, or at least the 15 people that are still on this site that were here when I posted all of these. ;)

    In this thread, I tried to begin a discussion on the Boglins rubber monster puppets from circa...1988ish that really didn't go anywhere...

    Why I stopped posting at night when I tend to be out of it.
    I so totally thought I saw a commercial for Kermit.

    Why doesn't anyone make Fraggle Rock MIDI or at least tabs?
    I've been wanting to learn how to play this song for years.

    Here are a few that actually went somewhere...

    My MC essay
    From back in the day when I kept the forum open when I wasn't even at the computer...:o

    TV shows that annoy people
    Hard to believe a thread I started actually caught on. ...for a while...

    Muppet Babies plushes
    Phil actually made this one a sticky for a while.

    My collection thread
    I seriously still get PMs and emails asking for stuff off this list, despite the fact that I hadn't been on the board in nearly a year.

    Hey check it out! It's the birth of T.K.O.!

    I'll update too though, but before I do, it's always great to see JediX!

    Okay; so here's the greatest hits of yer' ol' buddy Vic Romano:
    Lots Of MP3s, Wanna' Trade?
    A whopping 779 replies, but an amazing 15,776 views!!!
    Muppet Questions You Were Afraid To Ask
    Originally this thread went about two pages deep, but recently I revived it ballooning it to 113 replies!
    Muppet Reality Plot Taped Last Summer
    My first and only ever Sticky!
    Vic Romano's Weekly Creative Muppet Visuals
    Updating it once a week helps, but regardless, this (my most proudest thread) is doing very well so far. 102 replies, but 1,268 views!
    Online Muppet Story Books
    Also a work in progress, but a thread that has even gained popularity over at Tough Pigs!

    Honorable Mentions
    Show Me Your World
    A fan favorite and a good way to get a look at what some MC members look like in real life.
    Didja' Ever Get The Feeling You Were Being Watched?
    It got to four pages discussing how many guests vistit MC.
    Check Out My Muppet Comic
    Granted it only went to three pages, BUT it actually got it's own thread over at Tough Pigs (I was tipped of by someone here who pointed this out to me). So all you cats at TP, thanks for the look!

    Big Defeats and Failures
    • My first fan art at MC The Anime Muppets, Tributes and My Muppet Sketch Book barely got any posts, but the absolute worst with one reply was my fan art Spider Gonzo. That was depressing! :rolleyes:
    • But out of the 47 threads I've made, Jim Mentioned In Lucas' New Book was the only one to get ZERO replies. That always kinda' surprised me.

    My best thread is OOPS at 31 replies.

    My worst thread is "You might be an insane author if..." in Friends and Family, but that doesn't really count because I posted it in the wrong place and told people not to reply. So really my worst thread is Good Times! Good Times! at 5 replies.
