I'm sorry this thread isn't comic related and I hope it doesn't get locked or anything! Dx

I just had a question for the forums.

To all the moderators and/or experienced people on the vine I just wanted your opinion...

What do you think is the best time of day/week for me to post a new thread if I want it to get the most views/comments?

Because when I make a new thread I am always worried no one sees it and it just gets lost within the giant sea of the forums lol

So what time of day... and what day of the week... is the best time to make a new thread so the most people see and comment on it?

Should I always just wait until the weekends to make a new thread so the most people see it? What do you think? :)

If this is against the rules because it's not comic related I'm really sorry again! xc I didn't know how else to ask but it's to help all my future legit threads! :D

There are always a very large amount of people on the vine at any time, so they definitely see the threads you make regardless of what day it is. It just depends on what the thread is based around, and if it catches the interest of the viners who see it.

It's got to have a good title, first.

@ifdcruledtheworld: If you don't mind my asking... what do you think constitutes a good title? Do you think I need short titles because they get to the point more than longer titles and stuff?

Sorry if you're busy and can't answer I understand lol but thanks for posting! :)

@piratekingoda

You must get all the information in as short a text as possible. And try to make it sound interesting.

In my opinion, if you want people to participate in your thread, you must present an idea that gives room to different opinions. Originality is also a must.

So:

1.) Must find an original idea for a thread

2.) It must be fun, interesting and that enhances interactivity

3.) Find a title that resumes your idea in a fun, interesting way

4.) Once you have all this, you can tag people that you know have interests similiar to the thread you have created. Per example, if your thread is about Batman, you can find the Bat experts in the vine looking around in other Batman threads. You can also look for Bat-heaters, so to create some healthy rivalry.

Note: you must not abuse of the tag tool, since you don't want to spam users with many threads.

5.) And then, you can bump your thread after a few days no one posts in it, so to bring it up in the list.

Personally I think that the evening is a better time to post, for more people seem to be active after work and the such. But it's only my impression and I have never really paid much attention to that.

So, good luck!

Tag me on your next thread and I promise to post at least a couple of times to help you get it rolling.

No problem.

Also, one last tip. Except when it's a direct conversation that requires a fast answer, you should try to take a day or so to comment on your own thread.

Think this: When someone posts in your thread, your thread goes up in the list, and more people will see it. If you wait to the next day to post, it is probable that your thread will be down the list again, and with your answer you will make it go up again, so it is probable it will get more views.

Anyway, this trick won't make your thread a big success, but hey, why not, right?

@buckwheat: omg no way!!!!! Hahahaha that's what I was always thinking too!! :D

Lol it's so funny that you say that... now that I hear it from someone else then it's gotta be true hahaha!!! xP You're right it's definitely worth a shot! :)

That's one of the reasons why I reply to all of my comments... it is my way of bumping it lol but of course the other reason is I just like having conversation with people x3

But seriously thank you again man you've been crazy awesome I definitely have to follow you! Idk why I haven't yet! lol cx

I may not be a mod, but I've been on the vine a long time, I think I can help you out.

I generally avoid posting new threads on the weekends. I find that the traffic on comic vine is very low then.

On the weekdays, I usually post around 3-5, that's when I normally get the most responses.

Mondays-Fridays from 3-5 is when my posts do the best.

This^ pretty much nails it.

Things kinda seem to fall off at about 2-3 AM & starts picking up again at about 7-8 AM but yeah weekends & the early morning aren't really an opportune time to post. The early morning in Minnesota US.

@piratekingoda: By the way, sorry to be a jerk in your other thread. Just trying to spice things up so to get people debating.
