Mmmm, not sure - my guess is that a thread's title is probably the most important thing.
I posted a thread yesterday which was a general query on America's attitude towards folk music.
I called it 'Joan Baez on America' as it was a quote from her that raised my curiosity. There were only a few replies. At a guess, had I called it 'America's attitude toward folk' or something similar, I'd have had lots...
However, I don't think this forum is about getting lots of replies to a message, it's about getting answers to things that puzzle you, chatting about folkie stuff and making friends
