Default Ugh... Bumping...

We all want to get our thread to the top of a list, but bumping to get it up there? Come on. Yes, I'm guilty of it too, but it's getting out of hand. There are dozens of threads, in all of the forums that have a bunch of posts sayng "bump!" "Bumpers!!" and other things like that.

Truth is, it's annoying. I don't like going to a shop and seeing "Won't anyone order?" With like fifty million question marks. If you stop that, and just tell people about your shop, you're more likely to get a response.

Like I said though, I'm guilty too. We all want our shop, story, or anything to be at the top. Only one can be at the top though, if you're not, it doesn't make your shop bad, just undiscovered. There are so many tallented people on WI. It's hard to go see them all.

I'm ranting now, but before I submit this thread I just want to give people some ways to get their threads more noticed.

- You can tell friends about it. If you see that someone is looking around for an avvie, suggest your, or another shop for them. It'll help.
- Make something for a friend. For example, if you're on a chat thread, say "Hey! Look what I made!" If people seem interested, you can give them your shop links.
- Put links in your siggy. Okay, this one may seem realy popular, but I look through peoples siggies and click on their stories.

This is a big one:
VISIT OTHER PEOPLES THREADS TOO.
Don't just sit there and wait for people to come to your threads. Notice the ammount of posts that others have. A thread has zero posts? Check it out! They're probably doing the same thing you are. You can make someone's day by giving them their first post.

Do something nice for someone else too.

Good point. We all bump threads, but we never want to bump excessively and become "weird" or "desperate" on WI's term. Just do as Cow says, people, and you won't have to be the desperate Bumper.

I wouldn't know this, I'm not allowed into the GE. However, you can go see examples in the Creative Writing. There are consistant posts saying "Doesn't anyone want to read it?"

I'm not trying to shoot you down, that's the last thing I want to do, I'm just saying that it's in other threads besides the GE.

I didn't know that bumping wasn't allowed outside of the GE. Thanks for saying that.

Thanks for the information, I've heard the term bumping, but didn't really know what it is. No one will have a problem with me doing it, because I don't know how
