    How often do you make threads?

    Yeah, that's right it's a thread about making threads.
    I'm interested in general statistics behind this, I want to see what's your ratio of overall posts to started threads.
    You get this number by dividing Overall posts/Started threads. You can see your number of threads by going in the right top corner and clicking my profile. There you click on 'view recent started threads'.

    Mine is almost 6/1 aka, my every 6th post was starting a thread.

    I have started 0 threads.

    I think you'll find that almost everyone will have atleast 16 posts per thread started.

    Same situation here. Not sure if it is I have nothing to talk about, or no wish to share my opinion with others in terms of a new thread. Either way, just feel there is no need for me to start threads, so I don't.

    Heh. I suppose there is that, but even those with as few as I have have at least started one, maybe two.

    Let's see...

    2068 posts, 5 threads = 413,6 posts for every thread I've started.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    Take a look for yourself. It's a single thread I made back when I first started Minecraft, and become crazy obsessed with it for a short while. Didn't see a similar thread to it on the forums, so made the thread for some fun.

    For fun, go look up Jaylock and Salandrin and figure out their post count:thread started ratio.

    These ratios are too low across the board... Not going to be very helpful except for the few mass thread starters.

    Mine: 11,192:3 => 3,730 posts per thread.

    Pretty ambitious numbers in the poll, I'd be willing to bet 90% of the forumgoers belong in the 16+ category.

    Show off =p

    Anyways, I've started 0 threads. I'd divide by zero but I hear bad things happen when you do that.

    I've had a few accounts over the years that are long forgotten but can honestly say I've never started one and don't really plan to.

    8 threads started, 1681 posts(counting this one) So... ~201 posts for each thread I've started.

    I've not started a single thread myself. Not sure should I be ashamed of myself or proud. The poll has no option for 0!

    But one of those three threads you started was legendary and worth 1000!

    That is true! I guess that puts me at 11 posts per thread then

    My total post count... I'd say roughly 2% of them be threads that I've started...
