No, some people post at off times and might bump a thread in case someone on later in the day/week might have a response. I usually only see it if people are genuinely looking for help.

It doesn’t bother me so much.

Nope, doesn’t bother me one bit! Sometimes threads get lost in the shuffle. I’d hate for someone to not get the help they need just because they’re afraid to “bump” their own post. Just seems silly to have rules like that.

I think there’s a line. I have bumped my own posts before, as well as those of other users, in order to catch a different set of bees. But I agree that it’s kindof pointless to keep bumping highly specific, highly vague, or other posts that just aren’t very… commentable.

I think on the bee it is perfectly acceptable because threads move down so quickly on the main list.

@simplifiedbride:  I agree. 

It rarely annoys me. Usually, if I do get annoyed, it wasn’t just the bump to blame, but there is something else off about the post.

The only time it bothers me is if someone bumped their thread within an hour of their original post. That drives me nuts!

I bump things when I would like a question somoene else has asked and want to see an answer too. I also wouldn’t be opposed to bumping my own question if I needed an answer. The only forum etiquitte I’ve ever been aware of is no trolling/flaming.

I would rather have someone bump their post, for lack of response, than to duplicate post.

The only time it bothers me is when people do it like 20 minutes later and sound annoyed when they do.

It doesn’t bother me at all. If you post in the middle of the night when nobody else sees it, refresh it in the morning.

No, sometimes threads just get lost in the shuffle. Better for the OP to bump her own thread than to feel discouraged thinking her problem or question has gone ignored because it hasn’t gotten any responses yet.
