What is a BUMP post in the Community Forum?


You will occasionally find a bump post in some of the threads in the forum.

Some people think of this as an acronym for Bring Up My Post where the creator of a thread wishes to gain further attention to their own unanswered question in a busy forum.

Very often here on KickassTorrents we seek to keep some threads that are of importance or interest to new site members near the top of a Community Section or so they appear in the Latest Forum Threads list in the right hand side panel. Even if those threads are not needed at that time, people will hopefully recall the thread title later on.

Any bump post will be removed when it is superseded by a new post in that thread.

To avoid any rep-abuse confusion, when a Bump post is removed the person that posted it loses one rep-point. This is to deter situations where the reasons for bumping a thread might be just to gain rep-points.

Some threads might never be bumped as they are already pinned near the top of a Community Section or may be bumped on a monthly, daily or more frequent basis or with new information depending on the thread.

2016.01.08 Update:
1. From here on only the original poster of a pinned thread will bump it. The pin is there for a reason so let's look at that as a permanent bump.
2. Every other unpinned Thread can be bumped only once every 12 hours.

it is only allowed bump a thread after 12 hours of inactivity

many user is continuously bumping threads too frequently and they don't really care to delete previous bump posts.

Sure, I can add the emphasis (and in fact, I just did), but I can't make people follow it. Another thing to enforce and reason for scolding ... think. (You are right, of course.)
