Default Notice: Bumping of threads not allowed!

(FYI) IM NOT A MODERATOR, BUT I WAS TOLD THIS BY A MODERATOR

Just a notice to all......Bumping of threads are not allowed. Earlier, I recieved a PM (Private message) from GINGERLY.....Here it is.........

please remember...Bumping of threads is ONLY
allowed in the Gift Exchange area.

I then asked her what bumping was..I obviously did not know...

Bumping your thread up to the top by posting things like, bump this up. Anybody there? etc etc

BUMP means Bring Up My Post. The Gift Exchange needs it to keep their threads moving and having people see their merchandise.
When you BUMP a thread it brings it forward to the Top of the forum again. If there are important announcements, a silly BUMPed thread will take over and the get the exposure that the announcement should have gotten. If you wait a while for your thread to be seen, the late nighters come along and post on them. I have seen people leave their threads alone for a couple of days without BUMP-ing and it will have 11 or more posts on it. It doesn't need to move that quickly or be seen so immediately as announcements or guides or someone who REALLY needs help!
BUMP-ing on other's threads is a HUGE no-no. It is just rude and inconsiderate. There are better ways to improve your chance of good exposure.
A well thought out and written post gets plenty of attention. Don't use 'text' or 'Chat' speak. Be thorough and helpful if it is a guide.
I hope this helps you to understand BUMP better

By the way, AnthonysMommy...Gingerly would never use that emoticon in a PM to someone she is 'gently guiding' about forum rules. She always, always use and says 'Please.' She is the kindest moderator (In my opinion) and never means to scare anyone

Officially... BUMP stands for Bring Up My Post.
You're correct, it is only allowed in the Gift Exchange.

'Fake' bumping isn't allowed either. For example.. if your thread is on the 2nd page and not visible to users right away, making a post that says 'Anyone there?' is also against the rules. You basically bumped your post, but without using the actual word.

I was joking. When she first posted, the quote from Gingerly didn't show up. The smily on her thread was right after where she put "here's what she said." You obviously didn't see it then.
