Bumping Threads
The practice of posting to a pre-existing forum thread for the sole purpose of bringing it back to the top of the forums is called "bumping" an activity typically frowned upon. While you can surely reply to your own thread when you have something of note to add, posting words such as *bump* or “Is someone going to response to this?” is of little use to anyone and considered an act of “bumping.” Moderators consider "excessive" bumping the same as spamming, and violators will be subject to the same sanctions as spammers.
