What does "bump" mean?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by dudemeister, Feb 3, 2003.

  1. I've seen it in quite a lot of posts but never really understood what it means (in that context).

    *puts on Helmet Of Sarcasm Resistance*
  2. Bring a topic that you like up to the top again.

    Cover up obsenities and porn if you're not a mod.

    Freebie post, kinda like putting a sock in your drawers (or TP in the bra)

    When you post on a thread, it goes to the top of the list of threads. So by posting on a thread, you bump it to the top - thus drawing people's attention back to it.

    it doesn't get rid of it perse, but if there are pornographic(or otherwise insulting) troll threads in OT and there are 2 trolls and 6 Tb'ers bumping threads like mad, then it pushes the trolls threads out of sight faster than they can react.

    Hee hee, this is kind of fun -- sort of like one of those big beachballs that gets bounced around by the audience at big concerts.

    I wonder how long we can keep it up.
