    I've seen it on here several times now, what does "Bump" mean?

    I think it means that someone is adding to a Recent Topic, so that it gets to the top of the list again, before it drops off the bottom of the list. (You can still find a topic in the search listing)

    Your right. When a topic gets Bumped it gets to the top of the page again so that more people cn comment on it.

    Admin has heard of (or been to - not sure which) boards at which bumping eventually caused serioius problems. so many people were bumping their favorite topics that it effectively shut out new topics. that's why bumping is so strongly discouraged here. we want everybody to have a fair chance to "see and be seen".

    Admin the Ape Man. hmmmm ... has a certain "ring to it". i sure am glad my name ain't Jane. (and NO! it isn't Cheetah, either!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

    There would be a way around this, all you have to do is write a short sentence that might be relavant to the subject. That would be more legit, wouldn't it? Of course, it shouldn't be misused, as then the whole thing could get bogged down, and I can see Admin's problem.

    Yes, K3n, that's exactly what I had in mind, but I think you should leave his carrots alone, he might get cross.

    Bump means to Bump it up to the top so others can read it again.
