To anyone

When I scroll down the forum sections, I usually have two things I look at: One: is the title interesting? and two: are there replies? The second for the reason a topic that looks interesting doesn't always have to be interesting, but if a lot of people are replying to it, there must be going on something (as in: it's interesting ).

But sometimes you enter a page and you find a short thread (about something) and a whole lot of 'bumps', usually posted by the creater of the topic.

Just writing:

And nothing more.

I am just asking, isn't that like spamming? Because I think it's just useless, only trying to keep your topic high on the forum. But I believe truly interesting threads boom themselvses high up the forums, so... Isn't it just spamming than?

I have done bump spamming a lot, but I stopped a couple months ago. Some people need to stop as well.

That was officially the best burn I have ever heard. Kinda gives you a perspective on how many burns I've heard.

What I like to do to bump my posts is to post something related to the forum/previous comments and sometimes I read posts then wait 24 hours then reply, to bump the post, just some ideas to help people

Feel free to report it. You're not liable as a member to be a perfect reporter, just report anything you feel is questionable, and a moderator can review it.

On a personal note, I believe bumping to an extent isn't very classy. There are ways to bump a thread without just blatantly spamming it.

Bumping is an acronym, it isn't spamming, it means Boost Up My Post, it's generally used to get things such as servers, skin shops, questions, etc. noticed in case the Op posted at like 6 in the morning. Although it is used on other things such as conversations normally there is a limit on how many times the Op can bump, mainly one time a day. Bumping isn't spamming.
