Crown of the week threads

After the threads are crowned no one looks at them as every one moves on to other threads. Was that the purpose or is that a side effect?

Re: Crown of the week threads

I think the topics which win the crown already have so much content that members have exhausted all that they have to say. Hence I hardly see any more contribution after that point.

Same with breaking news. For 90% of the breaking news stories there is hardly any response.

Just 20 eChans participated in giving women a good time; that should have attracted more don't you think?

why don't you say it explicitly that you wanted echans to help break some pornstar's record...I think the record is about two orders of magnitude, that is O(100), by some lady in Texas....if I am not mistaken some body at GM or here even posted video link circa 2000-2001

I don't think so. Almost all the threads which would have otherwise ended up in the archives, doubled the views and participation once placed in COTW forum. Thread starter loses interest in his or her own thread is an entirely different issue. We do not honor thread starter. COTW is an appreciation of thread and the topic. Thread starter gets to keep the Crown is merely a co-incidence, cannot be helped.

You drunk or something? threads that are more popular in views and participation are typically chosen as COTW....I doubt COTW threads would have ended up in archives unless there was a concerted effort to relegate it to archives by some conspiring echans

Haath kangan ko arsi kya ... your thread entered COTW forum with less than 110 posts and 1100 views. Let's wait for the weekend for our confirmation. Thread starter loses interest is beyond our control. Some threads have gone to COTW forum with less than 200 views, ended the run with 500+.

Forget my thread....look at RaniRaja's What's Up thread.....a fine example of perpetual thread that does not need COTW

COTW only augments viewership of already popular threads.....but if a thread has 2 posts and 50 views its not going to make it to 20 posts and 500 views in most cases

Re: Crown of the week threads

The original premise of the COTW was and should, I think remain, Gabbar's choice. Unless that point is kept paramount, we will next have discussions on whether a particular thread deserved the crown or not. I am sure everyone has his / her own list for COTW every week. If a thread is given the crown, it shouldn't matter how many views/ replies etc it has. The crown simply means that the admin likes that particular thread enough to honor. Simble.

Lot of oxygen in morning air because you see its like this ... trees inhale some bad gas during the day and exhale "good for brain" kind of good gas in the night and early morning. He just returned from early morning walk. Let's wait and see how many minutes this "good gas" works before brain goes stale.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Let's not even use the word "honor" otherwise we may have someone questioning whether a particular thread is good enough to deserve the honor.

More simply, the crown thread is one that the admin likes and wants to see on the front page for another week.

Yaar, even in the "crown for which thread" thread I have consistently said that we should not discuss this.

Not bored or anything, had a few heavy days and nights at work..

Why do you have to refer to yourself in third person ? Try keeping your legs crossed

The purpose of this thread is not to judge the COTW threads.

The threads were crowned Saturday evening and there is no activity since Sunday AM and it is already late Tuesday. Many ki some COTW threads lose steam right after crowning which is sad.

I would very much like echans to keep discussing these threads as much as they discuss the new ones.

The woman and hindutva threads should attract more than 20 participants considering there are so many active echans. I do not know why they are holding back.

That is what I am trying to find out.

One observation cited is that the thread starter loses interest, which may be true.

Please point out any other factors you have observed, and how to overcome these, to get more echan involvement in crowned threads.

The threads have already been discussed. There may be more interesting topics on board, so members move on. The thread starter has already made his points and replied to the members' posts.
