    When you get on the site, what threads do you usually look at or hover over? For me I feel like I have the terrible habit to only view the most recent threads at the top and never venture further down the page. Am I the only one that does this?

    No, that's typical with gaming communities.

    I'll probably add a hot threads widget to the right side bar just to open up options

    Yeah I agree, but I was referring to this site specifically. Do you think it is because of the separation between the most recent threads and the others? Or something else?

    Well, I think it also has a lot to do with the users in this community. Most of the people here play different games; so game specific topics usually don't receive that much attention, especially if it's a game that works more on a co-op level. Also, you have to take into account that we have a lot of children / teens with-in the community and mature and or topics relating to such content will also split the views / activity of that thread significantly. With that being said most of the HOT topics on the forums are ones that everyone can relate too. Such as Song Of The Day, Interesting Video Of The Day, etc.

    That's just one issue, you also have people that don't want to go digging around in the forums looking for an interesting topic which leads most people to put their primary focus on the recent threads box.

    HALS well-said! I agree 100%. I'd like to point out that A.D.D.-like personalities exist more and more every day, so having commitment to a forum for gaming is hard for a lot of youngsters. Every now and then, you meet an old soul. Those are the people I want to notice more.

    HALS, I don't know about you but I love the mature threads and such, but I do get the point of the younger side of the community not appreciating nor participating in said threads.

    Otherwise, I usually just check the active topics, and then just leave the site open to run ads.

    The ads don't work like that unfortunately. It counts about 3 view per IP a day, if 3 ads are viewed in that day. Clicks are worth more as well.

    Be right back, driving to every library in the state to view the webpage 3 times.
