      I'm not sure exactly what you men; I see lots of good discussions going on here at any given time. Could you maybe be a little more specific?

      maybe my posts are not interesting enough supernova because i am not getting much of a feedback on my posts, it feels like people just read the post but they dont bother to reply .

      It seems that based on your join date, most of the members who have been here for a few months, or even years now are probably not engaged in on-topic discussions simply because to them, it's rehashed questions over and over.

      I'm assuming this because of:

      http://www.dreamviews.com/search.php?searchid=2083724

      Occasionally, you might see a member help newcomers, but other than that, they probably go inactive for a few weeks, or join the torture chamber we call DV Chat (the IRC), or just go to off-topic sections, or just quit the forums altogether.

      Some people are just not interested in reading things they already have a general knowledge of in the first place. It's not a bad thing, you'll realize it sooner or later if you're here for a few months.

      There's all sorts of things to consider like when people arrive based on workloads in real life and all that, but that's just my insight on it.

      Usually 20-50 people will read it before someone comments on it. No one knows everything about everything, so just because they read it that doesn't mean they have an answer or anything to add to it. And as stupid as it might sound, use capital letters and stuff. People will take you more seriously.

      I'm fairly new here myself, but my guess is that this forum isn't exactly brand new. The community members that have been here a while have most likely exhausted their interest in discussing on-topic discussions. Unfortunately for newer people with genuine on-topic questions it gives us fewer brains to pick. But in my short experience so far, the people that are answering on-topic threads have been very friendly, accommodating, and helpful.

      I hope you have better luck in the future

      Yeah, I have to agree with the others. I'm trying to be more active on the forum and more helpful. I tend to go through phases where I'll come back to the on-topic forums and go through and help people for a few weeks. But after a while, I tire out and find sanctuary in the madness that is #DV irc.
