Exclamation I know that bumping isn't allowed, but what about this?

Ok so awhile ago no one was posting on my thread so I wrote "post post post!" A staff member came and said not to do that because its like bumping.
Bumping stands for bump up my post, if you didnt know that anf it brimgs your thread to the top.

I have learned my lesson and i promise not to do this again. But I've seen lots of other people putting "anyone else wanna post?" , "any one else" , "please post" , "and bump bump bump" and no staff members are telling them to stop. So if you do this, please dont because its against the rules and its not fair for people who follow the rules and dont bump up their threads

i understand. the staff can't catch all of it. i have done that also. so even though it doesn't sound fair, the staff are working hard to help everyone follow the rules.

You bring up a good point. If your thread isn't getting posts for awhile, wait for it to close, and then you can get a staff member to bring it up to the top for you. If you want more traffic, you could always advertise it in your Signature (no where else, as this is against the rules then), and you could notice a significant increase of posters, and views. Sometimes it just helps to have a more intriguing title, or more appealing pictures, fonts, and other skills. Please don't bump though, even though it may be sneaky, as it is very rude to othervmembers in that section.

Hey there!
Its pretty much the same as bumping, but not all mods and admins catch it. (They cant be everywheres )
So what you do is you wat for t to close, if nobody else posts. Then you can flag it and a staff member will reopen it. As Danielle said, if you would like more traffic, put it in your siggy

Yes, bumping is only allowed in the Gift Exchange
So if no one is posting on your thread after awhile, then you can just flag it to close it, and if you ever want to re-open it again, you can flag it again to open it. And when you do open it, I'm sure you could post "Re-opened!" because it would be really far at the bottom, but I'm not sure about that one.

If your thread is informative on a particular subject, you can always add more new information on the same subject. This will bring your thread up to the top without being considered bumping, since you are adding knowledge.
