Hey, is it just me or do different sorts of threads come in waves? Like, those quizzes… When I first came here they were being posted left and right, and now I never see them except in the game section. There have been multiple political waves. There was that comparison of the sexes phase, and now there seems to be a “Bath” phase. Do you take baths with your pets? Do you take baths with your siblings? Do you take baths or showers? Who here on Crunchy Roll do you want to take a bath with?

I think it’s kind of funny, but I was wondering if anyone else has paid so much attention to it…

The quizzes were moved to the games section, that's why you're only seeing them there.

I don't notice 'fads' like you suggested but i do notice little 'fads' throughout the day. At the roughly same times and days in a week the same sort of threads appear. For example at midday Saturday alot of 'Vs' a slightly spammy threads tend to appear ^-^. I think that is just because of different timezones, who's free and how bored people are ^-^
As for the fads you're talking about; then i think that is similar to 'reality' in that we have changing fashions and topics of discussion.

Lately i have noticed an 'anti-fad' fad- as stupid as it sounds! We have threads about 'Lame threads', 'Bad first posts' and this one ^-^

(Oh and Lokita is correct- there are actually alot of complaints lately about so many Quizes taking over the games section!)

It's natural that there are "movements" in the way people make threads. Socio/political climates will move people to raise the issues, and sometimes even silly events like the "bath threads" will spark curiosity and creativity in the minds of some people. It's completely natural.

i guess people get inspired when they read a particular topic.....like they see a different perspective that could be raised into an issue so they make a thread....
