I'd recommend you move these back to the general synthesizer forum. I realise you might feel these should be sidelined because they can be repetitive but actually, there are not that many shootouts inadvertently repeated and I suggest you are not doing such important comparisons justice - virtually nobody is reading or contributing to them simply because nobody thinks to come to this forum.
I don't know what 'lousy viewing figures' you're talking about, threads in here get around the same number of views over time as ones in General. Looking at the figures for the first few threads of comparable size in the two forums, Shootouts actually has a higher view:reply ratio.
There is a reason vs. threads are put in a separate forum, and you hit the nail on the head when you said:

So basically, people are looking at the threads but they're not posting on them because they don't have anything to add, they haven't used the two synths and so can't compare them, they don't find the conversation interesting or some other reason. Vs topics aren't going back in general, that's just how it is.
