    I'm apologize for sounding/typing stupid, but what does "bump" and "YMMV" mean. I see them all the time on the forums, and can't figure them out.

    bump means for the thread to be bumped back up to the top of the page, from another page once its dropped off, at least thats what i take from it.
  3. If a post has been inactive and has not received any replies, you can "bump" it to the front screen and that way it will be noticed again.

    "Bump" is used to get the thread back to the top of the forum. It's usually used when a newbie asks an obscure or arcane question, has waited 5 minutes, and no one has responded.

    "YMMV" means "Your mileage may vary." This is used when an old salt knows he/she has a weak argument, but is not in the mood to engage in a full-on flame war.

    What does "plz" mean?


    Munji's on track... YMMV means I'm right but if you want to continue to be wrong, no problem.
