Well, I had a huge project going about the posting habits of the Flood. Then I decided to stop (I had a ton of research) since none of my experiments could really be considered that valid because of all the variables. Then I realized that I could post one test. The results are interesting! [i]Excerpt from “The Posts Theory” by Douglas Brown[/i] [b]Member Popularity[/b] These tests will see if people post based on the thread maker’s popularity. Both threads are nearly identical, posted at around the same time by different users. [url=http://bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=7435154] Thread 1 By Douglas Brown (Not Popular) [/url] The thread seems solid enough, and I tried to make it very open to discussion and debate. I even posted it in the afternoon when there is the greatest number of people. It received zero posts before dying. (how can you die if you never live?) [url=http://bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=7505644] Thread 2 by Halifax (Very Popular)[/url] The same basic thread as above. I changed a few sentences (No more than 3-4) and Halifax added his own title and lead-in line. It received 17 posts before dieing. Please don’t think I’m whining, I’d use another less popular person if I wasn’t afraid of offending them. If you’d like to see any more research, just ask. I have some things I’ve gathered just from observing the forums for while, a survey, a list of theories, and that’s as far as I got before realizing that neutral members don’t exist.
