    I was browsing through the forum and went to the section for Introduction (curiosity) and found many new users introducing themselves with 0 replies.

    There’s also a couple that gets flooded during busy hours on BHW where many of us miss.

    Not everyone will agree with me and that’s fine.

    What if we have a section for ghost threads with 0 replies and when someone finally respond to it, it gets removed from the ghost thread?

    The purpose of having the most recent posts on top is to ensure that engaging, popular content remains at the forefront. By highlighting content that has no engagement, we detract from the entire idea of urging discussion based on the content people are wanting to engage with. The posts on this forum don't move that fast. Things that have zero replies typically have zero replies because they aren't engaging.

    If you want my opinion, I think the Introductions section should be removed. It's a den of self promotion, post count inflation, and new member questions that can be answered in the Newbie section (https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/hey-to-everyone.1136647/). While it's great to have a warm welcome, that area is spam central.
