When you are on the forum and you make a thread do you read through all the replies? I have to say that generally I do read through all of them. Unless one of my topics goes through the roof popular. Which never happens. :(
What about you guys?
Indeed. What's the point of making a thread if you don't read what people reply? I will admit to skipping over some walls of text if the person is just being a douche or trying to derail the topic, but yes I read them all.
What's fun is to go back to old threads you had made and see people bumped it months after you had made it and started more discussion. Or having your thread be linked to as the source for a fix for some game work around like a thread I made about Skyrim mods not working over here. Look at all of those views! I have had several threads like that over the years, one even became news on a few websites, but that is the most recent one. Always makes ya feel proud.
If I make a thread, I definitely read through every comment in it, even if it has 261 comments or more.
This and I read all my comments. I try to reply to all of them but sometimes it isn't necessary. Like what I did to FluxWaveZ, feel free to not reply.
I do but the only problem is you have to go back and look yourself to see if anyones replied and I feel like some lonely stalker constantly having to check back to the thread, it would be nice if you got a message in your inbox every time someone responded to your thread, whether they @ replied you or not.
I don't post enough in general, but when I do I tend to post things that avoid any sort of confrontation, which considering 90% of internet posting tends to be based around arguing, doesn't get me a ton of replies.
When I do a get a reply, I'll read them all, certainly.

I always read and keep my inbox clean. As far as I can remember, I always respond when it's a question.
Same here, except for when I'm done discussing the topic I made, then I may skim through it, but I won't reply to it all or any of it. I like to try to respond to everyone though 'cause I know if you post your opinion and get no responses it feels kind of pointless, even if you may forget about it soon after. If the thread is old, I won't go back to it, and I'll be surprised if it gets bumped.
In general, yes. However I will stop for some specific ones that get out of hand (i.e. sometimes responses can be overly negative and if it goes on for a long time then I will get annoyed and I will decide for myself to stop reading; since I am stupid enough to let this stuff get to me and I can even stress myself out about the idea that I have either offended or annoyed someone - but this rarely happens and I never reply to someone annoyed so this will never become a big deal and if I continue reading it or not won't matter since I have a strict rule not to reply anyway so no one will know if I am reading or not).
