Now, I do agree with you on those type of threads. If every other post is from the creator, then you can tell that they could be bumping

I see what you mean now, Zooz, when you say those type of post/threads annoy you.

Oh, I see what you mean!

Yes, I think that's annoying also.

sorry zooz but I think it is great for people to thanks other members who have helped them or even just posted...maybe they are post bumping but I thank people and I don't do it for the posts....I don't even know how many posts I have, not even an around number

I recently started thanking everyone because so many have thanked me. It made me feel good that the poster acknowledged my contribution.
And, sometimes threads get lost in the crowd, so why wouldn't we want to bump it up. Especially if you really want some opinions. That's why we made the thread.
I wouldn't keep bumping it up, but once shouldn't hurt.

Hi muzicfreak I really do agree that we should thank people who post on our threads! Reading everyone's comments on this thread helped me realize that what I meant is when the owner of a thread posts "Does anyone else want to comment on this?" or simply continues to thank posters on every other post wthout being personal. I like it when a thank you is followed by a few personalized words, I guess!

To me, this is the same as bumping your post by typing "Bump!"

If you want to thank someone for posting, you should give them a rep point or post on their profile.

Am I alone in this line of thinking?
I agree and disagree. I agree because if a person is just doing that for there thread to be first or if there just saying "Thanks" for post count then it is kinda Bumping.

I disagree because if your not saying "Thanks" for the reasons above then it's not really bumping.

I don't mind the posts thanking people for commenting, but I am bothered by the anyone else posts. When every third or fourth post in the thread is "anyone else" or "would anyone else like to comment", or "does anyone else have anything to add" that is exactly the same as bumping and in my opinion those posts should be deleted.
