I don't expect people to be IC'ing 24/7, but I do want the thread t be active, because unfortunately, Matt, gone are the 'good old days' when there's banter and idle chit chat in the threads. That doesn't happen any more, and hasn't happened for a ling time. You have phases, sure, but I don't see you instigating this so called 'banter' in the thread. If you want it to return then shouldn't you be contributing to it yourself?
I'm all for the discussion threads of feds being a good mix of IC work and general chit chat about the fed or whatever, but that barely doesn't happen any more.
Bottom line is, that the discussion thread of EWNCW has been more active than it's been for a long ass time since this thread went up, and as long as that is the case, with the people involved showing interest, then I'm happy
The make or break of your character(s) is the promos you submit to the shows. But, IC work/how active you are in the thread is also taken into account when we're discussing who to push and what not, because the guys talking in the thread are clearly the guys with more interest in the fed.
