Which is why I've never flagged a post for bumping. BUT, a rule is a rule, and as such should not be broken. It's one thing when people don't know it's against the rules, but plenty of people know and just disregard it. It's disrespectful. Somebody created this site and somebody pays real money to run this site. Every time you post a BUMP post you are disrespecting that person. Those posts take up space and that space is costing someone REAL money. I'd say if you're the person paying the bill, then bumping probably seems like a little bigger deal.

I agree. I would not want to pay a lot of extra money for something that isn't worth anything. Please, listen to those who tell you this rule. They know what they're talking about.

I am part of the 'Everybody' and i most certainly do not bump threads. There are a lot of people who don't bump threads. When I have a reasonable amount of time pass, I have closed the thread. I don't know if we can still do that, though.

Default Re: Bumping.

If you think you had a legitimate post, with real issues which have been overlooked, is it then realistic to simply add a new reply, asking for more help? It would accomplish the same thing (bringing the post up to the top.)

I'm not a bumper, but on other forums have been known to add a reply to bring the post back up for consideration. Especially on a very busy site like this one, if I stupidly posted at an off-hour when no one was around.

Just looking for guidance...

Default Re: Bumping.

I have to say I am sorry for bumping the book chat threads and the recipe thread
I had no idea this was against the rules
I am truly sorry I will not do it again
I will post a recipe instead of bumping the thread
take care and have a wonderful day

Hugs Angel
