Making a good thread  Reply with quote  

I'm curious about what people feel makes a thread "good," and what the OP can do, if anything, to help with that. What I mean by a "good" thread is one that goes on for several pages, with people posting on-topic with sizable (two paragraphs or more) posts articulating their stance on the issue. It seems to happen the most with situations where the posters can easily have two or more different opinions on the matter, but where it's not so contentious that things get out of hand right away.

I think the "limited alcoholic drinks" etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=97455.0 thread has been pretty good, for example--a little heated now and then, but with people going out of their way to say that they appreciate debating with other people and that they respect differing opinions. And the arguments there have been so good for all sides that I honestly don't know which "side" I'm on.

Does anyone else have other examples of "good" threads? What do you think makes a thread "good"? Do you think the tone of OP influences the thread development? What should the OP do, or not do, to encourage a "good" thread?
