    *bump*

    I've noticed in some of people's post the word "bump". Can anyone tell me what it means?? Thanks!

    It's just moving a post back up to the top, Cfuh, so people can see it. Things move quite quickly around here, as you know, so sometimes things need to be "bumped" back up so others can see them.

    Hope this explanation helps!

    If a thread gets burried on the third or fourth page, sometimes not everyone will see it. In order to make sure everyone has the opportunity to see something, a thread author will bump the thread up so it shows up higher in the list. Most often by posting *bump* just to register a new reply. Hope that helps!
