what does it mean in a post - bump?
It brings the post up to the top, basically so it doesn't get buried or wind up a couple of pages back.
how you do that?
type "bump" in the reply section, hit submit reply
ok - but i still don't understand this bump thing. i guess that why i live in cat corner tennessee we little slow on catching on.
Jeff, if a post does not get answered or is placed here at a fast moving time of day, it can be out of sight within a very short amount of time. New posts go to the top of the stack, therefore placing the word or action 'bump' brings the post back up to the top.
For example, if you placed a post at 10:00 am and it did not get any answer by 5:00 in the afternoon, it would be near the bottom or on its way to page two, because the newer posts were stacked over it. Adding the bump just brings it back to the top of the stack, its a common thing here and as long as it does not get abused it will continue to be available.
Every time a new post is added, an older post slips down to page two, a lot of readers do not go to page two, therefore every time something is added to the top, it must release something at the bottom for there to be room for the new post. Most pages are set to handle 20 posts, so when the 21st comes in the last one goes to being archived on page two, and eventually page 3, ect.
Well dang Fla Gal.. I thought it was just a cute way of saying "jump in line" or "bump the others down!"
bumpity bumpity bump.. up the list we jump!
ha ha ha
Best laugh all day, Morrison corner!
