Bumping Threads

Don't Bump Threads
A bad habit often seen on message boards is that people post messages with irrelevant content to existing threads for the sole purpose of refreshing threads so that the discussion appears current or is being kept near the top of the list of recent topics. This causes other posts to "scroll off" faster, and is widely considered an annoyance. The so-called "bumping" also triggers other forum users to constantly refresh their own threads as well, and sooner than later, the quality of the forum would suffer. For this reason, "bumping" is not welcome and may result in threads to be locked. Multiple responses to a thread are welcome, as long as they contribute constructively to the topic at hand.

'Bumping' your thread more than once per twenty-four hours will result in a loss of your posting privileges for a period of time. Please consider this your only warning.
