What are your thread numbers like? Do threads you make usually become successful?
How long do you wait?
If you are looking for 200 replies within 5 minutes, that's really only possible on /b/ or maybe /v/ or /sp/, maybe even /pol/ during a happening. My point is that you can still have a quality thread even if it gets 1 reply every 12 hours.
I guess that's the real problem, that the threads don't get replied to not necessarily because they are bad, it's just they get slid off page 10 too quickly by other threads, including bait threads.
