    Yeah sure you can start up a few threads but to really dominate a forum and attempt to keep out discussions you do not like you need to do more.

    First thing is to come into threads and bring up a tangent discussion to change the subject of a thread. No need to see if anyone wants to discuss the tangent demand thst the people interested in the original discussion talk about yours.

    Tangent discussions are normal but to be dominant you must continue to demand your topic be discussed as if you started the thread.

    Next technique is to make accusations and question the people directly. Continue to ask questions and demand that your question be answered. If questions are asked of you, deflect them and continue to ask more questions than must be answered. This is key, you must only ask questions and never answer them. The person asking the question is dominant over the person who is answering.

    Remember your purpose is to have fun dominating the forum so do not allow others to have conversations.

    It is something I have seen at RHP since I joined. It is the exact same people doing it.

    You are a recovering forum dominator. You are not the worst offender. There are two who are much worse.

    LOL...Ok, that is really taking your time. Are you saying someone has dominated the forums for 10 years?

    eladar,

    Have you considered that maybe not many participate in the forums so it appears they are dominating them? NOTE: As you said always the same posters! 😉

    Look at the thumbs down I receive not that many participate between the thumbs down and up. I think many just sit back with their popcorn and watch the show. 😉

    Someone running across the grass naked at Wimbledon can dominate the moment.

    The point of this thread is ..... ???
