I've found that if you post an engaging topic, for example asking about a broad topic, you tend to get more replies than if you post about a smaller topic. For example, your post here is relating to an extremely specific topic of proofreading, which may be used very rarely by the forum users. Posting a topic that promotes discussion will usually bring replies, while those that are considered uninteresting will quickly die out.
Or, you can be like some users and make a completely indecipherable post that requires me to reply with a translation.

And who are you, the proud lord said, that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat, that's all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red, a lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord, as long and sharp as yours.
And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall, and not a soul to hear.
