I would like people to comment my stuff. But if everyone just ask others to read their stuff but do not get involved in commenting, than this club will be useless.
Maybe you should keep a list of members who want to be active members of the club.
If we discuss the content of peoples newsposts in the thread instead of leaving a comment, there wouldn't be a huge lack of people to respond. When a random person comes into the thread to try and get exposure for their newspost, they'll likely see a conversation about a user post that might intrigue them and get them involved in responding.
I'm gonna throw out the rules I've got in mind after thinking about it for a while, and you guys let me know what you think. Requesters have to put a paragraph or two description, link to the specific newspost, and a pic is optional. That way passerby can get a feel for what they are talking about without having to go to their user page. A lot of people would want to come to this thread just to post their link and then not come back. This way, there is conversation going on in the thread that they will see and be more likely to join in instead of just leaving.
When leaving your "comment," do a reply and quote to the specific newspost you're responding to. Then type out whatever you wanted to say. You don't have to leave a comment on the newspost, but you can. Then the people who want comments would check the thread often to see if anyone was making conversation about their newspost. While they were doing that, they would likely see a different conversation going on that they could talk about too.
I think it'd be the best way. It'd be cool because a lot of newsposts are going to be about serious things, and it would definitely make for some really deep conversations in the thread. Shit, if we keep it cleaned up, this thread might be one of the most mature ones on newgrounds. What do you guys think?
