Since 2012, no replies to any of these posts. Is there any point in me posting further info on this forum? Assuming that the level of comments is an indication of the lack of interest, just exactly what is it people on this forum want to see?

If it's an interesting read, there is no need for a reply. It looks like your posts are of interest to a lot of viewers, irrespective of responses. I come here to read & be informed rather than write.

You seem to have had an awful lot of people reading your posts. I've not been on in a while, but I've never had any problems getting a response if I've asked a direct question about anything.

I am one of the ones who read your posts and left no comment. In my defense I thought they were for Info posts and assumed yo didn't want a discussion

Fascinating stuff but also bear in mind that C18th is a fairly small part of the reenactment scene in the UK and trekking in particular is rare (legally and logistically tricky for a start) so not many folk can join in with your discussion other than to appreciate nice equipment and the information you present.

The other factor is that forums have been pretty quiet for the last five years in general and you often frame your posts as statements that don't require an answer.

I get can't load plug in with your media, left a few general comments on some of your threads that may be relevant? Different period for I have the advantage that you can find a relevant century easily, downside is not everyone is passing through the same century or looking at all the different fori,

With a 1,000 views on each post they are being widely read.

It is not uncommon for people not to comment on posts like these. Don't know why it is just a thing. But the view count is very good and says the posts are worthwhile.

Presumably because, though the article may be interesting, people don't have any specific question or comment to make and threads where the comments are simply thumbs-up emojis, "+1", "nice" or similar are not really very useful. Github recently introduced the equivalent of a Facebook "like" button in order to discourage such threads.

I note that the XDA forums do something similar with a "thanks" button, the post then showing some text along the bottom such as "#{number} people thanked #{author} for this useful post". If this board can support it then that might be worth introducing.
