Default Bumping.

Bumping

Bumping is actually not allowed outside of the Gift Exchange, so please no more of that. It is also considered Fluff posts. And if you have to Do something to make the post longer like *makepostlonger* or *!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*, it is a Fluff post, also. so Please no more Bumping.

Thank You.

Default Re: Bumping.

I've asked numerous people on numerous threads to please stop bumping and been totally disregarded. I've also been told that it isn't against the rules (I know it is). People don't seem to take the rules seriously and I hate to flag a post over bumping, but maybe that's what's needed. If a mod happens by here, please let us know if we should be flagging bumping posts.

I am not yet a gift trainee, but have applied and am greatly looking forward to it. I have seen posts that say "bump". This is probably a really stupid question, but indulge me please. What does "bump" mean and what is bumping?

Thanks.

When people say Bump, they are trying to bring their or someone else's thread up to the top of the page, so that it will be looked at by more people!

Yeah! It's really sad how many people bump outside of the GE. Hope this thread can clear up the problem :]

Yeah, it is against the rules, but I'm not sure it's THAT big of a deal... There are other things out there that should be getting more attention than just Bumping...

Bump is when people say BUMP meaning Bump Up My Post. Which is what gets the post identified"fluff." I said BUMP because someone told me to and I didn't know what it was. Now I do and I'm not anymore!!

Bump means
Bring
Up
My
Post

What it does is re-circulates the post, bringing it to the top of the page for people to see again. Starts the activity all over. It is definitely considered a big No-no because it interferes with other posts that are non-fluff.

Waffleghetti, you have been here as long as I have, you know that rudeness is rudeness, no matter whether it is spamming, fluff or bumping. They don't show any productivity and it is unfair when others work so hard for the 50 posts to apply for Gift Trainee without using these tactics.
