People “bump” a thread to move it to the top of list of threads (because the threads are organized from most recent comment to least recent comment). More people see the thread if it is in the top half of the first page, so after it gets buried people “bump” it up to try to get more responses.

It means, you’re *bumping* your thread up so people don’t miss it. Sometimes they go to the bottom of the page really fast without any responses. *bumping* is just adding a post to send it back to the top of the page.

They are “bumping” their thread to the top of the list so more people will see it and hopefully respond

it’s usually just to add a comment to a thread you started if it’s not getting many replies. You can “bump” your thread so that people see more comments under it and therefore are more motivated to go check it out. does that make sense?

I always picture the poster physically bumping their thread with their hip when I read this. I am weird.
