As many of you already know, a thread/topic is "bumped" to the top of active threads to keep it from getting lost and to make sure it remains seen. This is usually done by making a new post on a thread, typically with something as simple as a smilie, sticker, or just the word "bump". Here on the forum we users have an additional bumping option not available in the facebook group. I will post 5 examples
of this feature using multiple screenshots.First and foremost, this can only be done on threads where:
Case A. You are the Original Poster (or creator) of the thread (regardless of who made the last post).
Case B. You have the last post made in a thread (your own thread or someone else's).This CANNOT be done:
If the thread was not created by you and you do not have the last post madeRules to bumping:
1. You must be the Original Poster (creator) of the thread ~OR~
have the last post made in a thread
2. The bump option will not be available until 1 hour after the last post was made
3. Bumping cannot be used more than once per post - once you use the bump option the next bump must be an actual post (which the new post can then be bumped once the proper time elapses)If there are any other rules or restrictions they will be revealed as the forum becomes more active, one can only find out so much with the forum as it currently is. Also, there may be a way to decrease the time from when a post is made and when it can be bumped, as there are other forums which use this same template and have shorter time lapses.Examples:
*Click to jump to that example*Example 1 - Time LapseExample 2 - Both Cases A and B - Can BumpExample 3 - Case AExample 4 - Case BExample 5 - Both Cases A and B - Cannot Bump
*On example images where it says "Last bumped by..." this is available for anyone to see at the bottom of a bumped post. It disappears once a new post is made.
