What does Bump mean in a thread? Serious question. Thanks in advance for any non-snarky answers.

Thanks in advance for any non-snarky answers.

It means the poster just took a bump of some drug, like K or meth, and you should too.

by Anonymousreply 110/15/2020

It simply a way of indicating a poster is bumping a thread to the top of the page.

by Anonymousreply 210/15/2020

To bump a thread means to literally bump it up to the front main page.

Mostly if it’s a quiet thread, it gives it a reply to move it up to the head of the line or queue.

"Bump" means you want to read & be entertained by other posters but can't add anything, yourself, to a discussion.

by Anonymousreply 510/15/2020

"Means to literally bump it up"

No it doesn't. This is a misuse of "literally" and doesn't really answer OP's question.

by Anonymousreply 610/15/2020

It means the walls of his fartbox have been lined with cocaine and bump is the mating call for someone to come over and enjoy the bounty.

“Bump” means the poster wants more discussion of the topic, but has nothing interesting to say.

It means the Poster found The Hustle to be too complicated, Rose.

It means the thread sucks, no on is responding to it an the OP is trying to get it noticed again.

Good question. It means that the framus intersects with the ramastan approximately at the paternoster.

Sometimes it means Madonna. Other times Janet. Never Gaga. Unless it's Gaga Gaga, you know.

OP here. Thanks to all who posted useful answers. Much appreciated. As for the snarky responses, it's a pity that none were funny. Had expected more from Bootsy-Gumdrop, more's the pity.

Another thing it does, is it puts the thread in the list the bumper sees, as threads he’s contributed to, so that he won’t miss seeing responses to it.

R21 as opposed to, just clicking the eye, to watch the thread, whenever you want to, which works just as well, as posting in the thread, but I guess, to each, his own.

Booty Bumping involves mixing drugs—usually meth or cocaine—with water and squirting it into one's anus..

Or so I have heard from some individuals familiar with the matter

As I myself would never indulge in such low-class conduct...

I mean, you haven't heard anything about me doing this, have you?

Because it is a shameful, disgusting LIE!

by Anonymousreply 2610/16/2020

I bump threads so that they will be in my watched threads.

But some fat, old, hideous trolls bump 2015 threads to fuck up the board. OP should not do that or he will get blocked and banned.

by Anonymousreply 2710/16/2020

I've always wondered how stupid you have to be to not be able to figure out what 'bump' means all on your own.

I mean, all you have to do is observe. It's fucking obvious.

by Anonymousreply 2810/16/2020

"BUMP" = "BUMP UP MY POST"

It's a recursive definition

by Anonymousreply 2910/16/2020

Mostly it's done by the creators of threads desperately trying to keep them active, or trolls.

You are a selfish asshole. Use the "eye" icon at the top of the thread for this, dickwad.

In general, it's bad forum etiquette to "bump" old or non active threads. That's not exclusive to this site, but rather any forum. On here, some people just shamelessly type "bump". But on other forums I visit, like ones for Excel questions, they'll excoriate you for doing something like that.

Actually, it's not always bad forum etiquette. I participate in a food forum that has lots of good info on old threads. If it's the exact same (or very, very similar) subject matter, it's considered good form to add to the old thread rather than creating a new thread. When posters do start a new thread on something that already has a thread, a moderator will merge the threads. E.g., "Home-Made Falafel."

R35. That's all a WW will do from your side (grey out the WW button). But the person who posted the comment should receive a notification (above the little bell icon in the upper right corner). It's also supposed to help prevent posts from being greyed out or deleted, but I can't confirm that.

It is truly refreshing to know that there at least a few DLers who will take the time to answer a serious question and not resort to snark and/or an ad hominem attack. Hats off to you, R45 and R2, R3, R15, R21, R29, R37, and R40.

Some subjects are still informative even if they’re old, inactive threads, bumped back to life. People also complain about others creating a new thread when an old one exists. Seems like there is no pleasing people.

The moo cow threads get pay-walled after 50 replies, it seems, so, that is why a new moo thread is started before the previous one gets to 600. There is always someone who asks why a new moo thread is created when the old one is still active, and it’s because these cows don’t have the cash to buy a subscription, so a new thread allows everyone on the farm to post. .

by Anonymousreply 5010/17/2020

It means the poster is masturbating furiously to the content of the thread and gets further pleasure by the exposure of others knowing it.

No?

The disapproval of someone who doesn’t know what a bump is in a forum thread — it WOUNDS.

It's the disappointment that someone is so lazy or unobservant that they can't figure out what 'bump' means simply by inspection.

It's not rocket science. It takes very little thought to figure it out. Are people so used to not actually engaging their brains and working things out for themselves? They expect it all to just be handed to them?

by Anonymousreply 5410/17/2020

R27 is too fucking stupid to figure out how to correctly add a thread to her threadwatcher without putting graffiti in the comments.

OP, 1) Welcome back from your coma; none of us missed you and 2) Seriously?

Does one have to part of an elite group for the bump to actually work its magic? I think I tried it once and nothing happened.

Exactly. Actually, it’s a shame there isn’t a piece of internet-based software that people can use to input questions and obtain links to websites that may provide answers.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
