Ok I'm still new to this all, and maybe this question will just make me sound old, but what does it mean when someone posts bump? or bump up to the top? It seems like a waste of a post, but maybe it just seems that way to me because i have no idea what it means. Thanks in advance for responses!
Oh and also why do i have a smiley face after the word webkinz, and some people have a question mark, and others don't have either?? What does it mean??

Whenever a new post is put on a thread...it gets bumped to the top of the page..so if someone is still waiting for people to respond , they might bump their topic back up to the top so it is the first one
the smiley faces and question marks after the word webkinz has to do with how many posts you have. it starts out as lil kinz, then goes to webkinz with a question mark, then a smiley. your stars increase under that as you post too. eventually webkinz changes to gifted after you've been here 2 weeks, had 50 posts and agree to the rules. you can find out more by clicking on the FAQ under the hippos feet above.

When they "Bump" it.. they are getting it to go to the front page so People can see it!
For Bumping- Since there are a lot of people and topics, some topics get pushed to the second+ page. Noone sees it so the person who started the thread posts on it to make it go back to the first topic posted. They can say whatever they want to bump it back up, but if you have nothing to say, they say BUMP because that is what they are doing.
For the smiley- Well when you start out you are a lil kinz. Then (well this is what I think) it has a question mark after a few more posts because you don't have that, that many yet. And you aren't as fammiliar with the forum, that is why it has a "?". But after a few more posts you see ": )" because you are more familliar with the forum. But this is all a guess lol. Then after you have at least 50 posts, and have been a member for two weeks and agree to the rules, you become gifted. I, right now still "Webkinz : )" because I am waiting on being gifted.
