Have you been back to visit some of your old posts? When I checked on yours, those were the only two I saw that had zero responses.
I usually read the board just by surfing on the main forum list. So, if a thread is up as the most recently posted thread in a forum, I see it on the list. Sometimes I will click if the topic is interesting. ( So maybe that means "write compelling thread titles."
But it also means that if someone posts another thread in the forum, then that thread will show up on the main page, and people who read the board the way I do won't know your thread is around in the other forums. One thing you can do, if a thread has been up a while with no response, is to post a reply to it-- that brings it back to the top of the forum and will cause it to display again on the main page
. A lot of times you'll see "bump" or "BTT" (which stands for back to top)-- that's what is happening, people "bumping" their threads up to the top of a forum.
I will say that I do usually go into the General Stamping Talk forum to look at the list of topics, so you might have better luck just posting in there
. I think that it might be the one that gets the most traffic. That one and the swap and sales forums are the ones I view most often, but for sure swaps and sales aren't the right homes.
And sometimes what happens is that you'll post something, and it won't get any replies right away, but later someone will be browsing around in the forum, find it, reply to it, and "revive" it. So don't give up on your threads!
(PS: I don't have any tips for the die cuts, or I'd have helped with those!)
