How authors select topics for raising new threads in the forum section?In the forum section of ISC, we see many new threads raised on day to day basis. Many authors raise more than one thread also almost on daily basis though few others are very selective and raise a new thread only once in a while. It prompted me to think about as to from where the authors get idea to select a topic for raising a new thread.
As far as I could notice selecting a theme from a news item / current affairs topic currently being broadcasted in the media like television, internet resources, print media etc. appears to be the main source of inspiration. However, perhaps few authors get inspired by the threads raised in the forum section of ISC by other authors also.
What are your observations in this regard?
