So I've noticed that for some here, the threads they make get lots of attention and replies and for others, not much or sadly, none at all. I know one reason is some here are suffering more than others, in more danger of hurting themselves, etc, so they need the extra attention and support from here. But could another reason also be popularity? That the ones that get more responses to their threads have been here longer, have more friends here, go to the chat room frequently and everyone knows them, etc? In case I make a thread and I feel it doesn't get enough replies, is it polite to bump it up? There's just so many people on this forum, some people will stand out and others will just be a little ignored fish in a very big ocean. I feel that some people will fall through the cracks, but its also my fault for not being assertive enough here, for being very quiet and withdrawn here and in real life.
