Can someone explain to me what all the 'bumping' means? I keep seeing it in different posts but am clueless and now, I am curious
post #2 of 14
I think it's to push the topic to the top of the posts so more people see it.

Ghys - People use bump to keep a thread nearer to the top, so that more people see it!

The reason why we bump is that it keeps the thread nearer to the top so others can see it. We can't make every thread a "sticky" or important so that its permanently stuck, so this is our alternative. Hope that helps.

Okay.....I thought it was some kind of game and I wanted tp play too! So, if I'm getting this right, you just type the word in and a moderator takes care of it??

Actually- any word will bump a post to the top- that is one of the things I like about these forums- if you post on something 25 days ago then the board program takes the post off where it was buried and brings it to the top- until someone posts something else and then that post goes first.

Us Mods just like the word Bump.....so we bump subjects that are important at the moment.

Okay....I am done with my "duh" moment! I get it now. As soon as you reply to a post it brings it to the top.

Thanks guys!

Not laughing at you, Gyslaine, just laughing because...I don't know...it feels good....:LOL: No really, I would not have known what it meant either if I didn't already know.

Debby, laugh away... I still am. I had such a weird day yesterday. :LOL: No matter what we were taking about at the office, I had to come out with some kind of 'funny' reply that made people stop and say "What did you just say?" I think my co-workers are still laughing too!

For more laugh at me moments:

My boss asked me to book 2 condominiums at Mont Tremblant in Quebec. He is taking all the supervisors and myself out for a management party. It's an overnight trip. We're planning on having a day of shopping and a night of partying/relaxing. Anyways.....Mont Tremblant is one of the most popular Ski resorts in Quebec. I have not been there yet but apparently it's beautiful there. So, the story goes like this: My boss: "Make sure you ask them to book condominums that are in walking distance of the mountain". Me: "Oh...there's a mountain there???" How's that for a 'duh' moment in life? My hubby said to make sure i don't tell anyone this story. Guess he's embarrased! :LOL:

:LOL: That IS funny!!!! I guess you thought that when people were skiing they were just going to be pulled behind trucks!!! :laughing: :laughing2

Don't feel bad....I have had some really bad "duh" moments...I can't think of any right now, but trust me on this, there have been some doozies!!! :laughing:

Ghys, just blame it on being sick. See, that's how I know that I am really getting sick because I just get really dumb.

(That's me, getting sick!)

Ahem....I think I feel another cold coming. Saddly, it is, alas, the truth. It seems I may be relapsing from my last little bout. But the good news is: I can use it as an excuse. Right??? (pssst, thanks Heidi!)

Funny part about the mountain thing is that I completely forgot about the fact that it is a ski resort. My mind was focused on the room rentals and the fun we'd have, and the shopping.... why let a mountain get in the way of all of that????
