You could, in all fairness, be more conservative with your bumps. You're allowed two. How about not making one for at least a few days, or even a week?

What constitutes a bump though? If I reply to somebodies question (or to thank them etc), does that count as a bump?

A bump is a post which doesn't add anything extra to the thread. Answering a question is OK. Thanking someone is OK. But, if these are being used to bring threads to the top too much then they will be considered as bumps too.

It's a bit of common sense. You shouldn't be posting straight after yourself either. There should be someone else's post in between at least. Again, common sense prevails.

most feel a bump is when they actually post "bump", a bump basically is anything considered to just get your post back to the top of the board

So is it judged manually by the mods then? I was under the impression it was an automated process - i.e. everytime you posted in your own thread, that was considered a bump...?

It's all done on a case by case basis by the moderators.

Ah right, thank you for the info!
