What are the most commented threads on Airliners.net? (2020)

Sun Jun 28, 2020 1:02 am

Personally, I believe the reuters rumor 757plus and 767x was popular, but I know there are more. Can include the very early ones, made in '96 or so............ Intrested in hearing feedback

If I had to guess, it would be the original 9/11 thread.

I don’t think so, the number of folks at airliners was a lot smaller back then.

My guess would be the 737 MAX grounding. Especially if you where to include the Ethiopian crash that was the final straw leading to the grounding.

As for subjects in general: can’t beat US politics.

Almost certainly some of the most frequent topics of multiple threads, along with "Why Doesn't Boeing Restart The 757 Line/Introduce A Re-Engined 757/757Max/etc.?", but I thought the OP meant single threads with the most comments.

Any thread discussing an airliner crash is bound to generate an extraordinary number of comments. Infuriatingly after the fourth page or so in most of those comments will be someone proudly announcing that they haven't read anything but the title of the thread followed by that person asking a question that has already been asked AND answered multiple times in previous posts within the thread.

The conveyor belt thread has to be right up there with the most replies to a post but 9/11 and 737Max has to be up there as well.

Non-Aviation did exist back then and it had a much more rowdy, non-PC, not "Sanitized For Your Protection" feel to it at that time so threads about romantic problems were not unheard of then.

Yep, page after page after page of people doggedly refusing to accept or even understand that the wheels on the landing gear of aircraft are not powered and play no active role in an aircraft achieving takeoff velocity.

Conveyor belt take-off had 955 replies. Later a version was made for landings, but that only had 77 replies.
Same as with the 9/11 threads, the number of posts were unprecendented back then, but by today's standards don't really stand out. As I explained earlier, there where a lot fewer people on the site.
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=747177&start=950
viewtopic.php?t=758031&start=50

For reference, the United 2020 thread now on the first page of civil_aviation has 2.330 posts.
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1437915

The 737MAX grounding:
2019Q1 had 6.477 posts. viewtopic.php?t=1417545
2019Q2 had 3.769 posts. viewtopic.php?t=1421471
2019Q3 had 4.381 posts. viewtopic.php?t=1426007
2019Q4 had 5.650 posts. viewtopic.php?t=1432067
JAN2020 had 1.741 posts viewtopic.php?t=1437867
FEB2020 had 709 posts. viewtopic.php?t=1440181
MAR2020 had 464 posts. viewtopic.php?t=1442115
2020Q2 has 554 posts viewtopic.php?t=1445841

So that's already 23.745 and that's without the threads about ET302. Neither does it include probably a few hundred other threads that where closed so that everything could be thrown into big massive completely unmanageble monster-thread (in case you wondered, I am not a fan of those)

Actually regarding the 737MAX threads its higher than that, with deleted posts included its 26,421 posts for all grounding threads. Then add in the Ethiopian crash thread (6500 posts) and Lion Air around another (3500 posts or thereabouts). Add in all the other threads it will be over 40,000 posts

The Australian Aviation Thread had 1100 posts in April alone, a new record for that thread

All threads relating to Qantas Project Sunrise have been well over 4000 posts

OP mentioned 757neo/max/plus/x/supermegaflugzeug so I thought it was topic based.

Individual thread wise I'd say MH370 holds that title. Before the revamp that thread had over 20 pages worth of replies and that was back when threads were capped to 250 replies per page.

So we all need a system to avoid reading tens of thousands of threads.
Opening Posts of an interesting topic should be read
The next dozen or so posts usually have new and significant information
Longer posts often have important detailed information
Certain posters usually weigh in with good information
If two or three posters are having an argument usually it can be skipped over
Writers of longer posts which are nonsense either need to be skipped over, or added to foe list
For really long threads, read the last new page every few days
Not all posts need to be read, just scrolled over

Adding 'stickies' was a good move. Another that would be good for really long threads would be two or three generally trusted posters who differ to do a short summary of what is known, what happened, common misunderstandings of what happened. They would not need to agree, but delineate the likely knowns/unknowns. This could be a sticky.

And now that we're a day away from MAX having its certification test flight, we're down to a couple posts a day, lol.

I notice that an "accepted consensus" forms, posts drop away.

Now that consensus is that Boeing and FAA dropped the ball, no one really cares much about how/when it flies again.

Now that consensus is the PIA pilots were totally undisciplined in every phase of the approach and crashed a perfectly good airplane, few care to know more, even that Pakistan itself is saying that something like 40% of the pilots in the country have fraudulently obtained licenses.

I think that mostly comes down to the monster-threads.

I did not know the MAX was a day away from a test flight. I suppose I could have found out had I bothered to keep up with the current monster thread. But when a thread is 100s of posts long and MOST of it is repetitive dribble, I ain't gonna follow that thread. It's not fair for me to speak on behalf of others, but I would guess the same applies to a lot of people.

If someone where to start a thread saying the MAX will fly tomorrow, I guarantee you that thread will get a lot of posts.

The 'Brexit' series threads are likely to have the most numbers of posts in recent years in the non-av category.

If someone where to start a thread saying the MAX will fly tomorrow, I guarantee you that thread will get a lot of posts filled with repetitive dribble having nothing to do with the test flights. Most of it would be rehashing all the various statements about Boeing, MAX, MCAS, pilot skills, crashes, etc already made, unless of course there was some really unexpected outcome of the test flights.

It's kind of the way undisciplined conversation goes. People want to contribute, but don't really have much to add on the subject of the thread, so the tread drifts off topic. Like I'm doing right now in the middle of the 'most commented threads' thread, lol.
