 Bumping

This is becoming very annoying in the forums. I can understand bumping a thread like in the corn snake forum. They have a thread for the snakes and setups and if it moves to the bottom then someone will bump it up.

That doesnít bother me but what does is when people make a thread and 10 minutes later they hit bump, most of the time they donít even give it a few hours before they are hitting bump two or three times.

It is bad in the leopard gecko forum and I am sure itís the same in other places but what is so hard about understanding that not everyone sits in front of a computer 24/7 refreshing the forum page for new posts? Have some patience

I doubt there is anything that can be done but it would be nice if people would stop bumping so much. I donít think we need to have the word blocked or anything but if Doug could make one thread for all the forums about it that would be nice.

 Bumping

I agree for the same reasons above, plus it is a complete waste of resources. There will be a reminder of forum etiquette and basic rules that will be put in place in the area where we type. Hopefully this will elminate some of the bumping.

Thanks

 Bumping

BUMP...........Just kidding. I really donít mind seeing this Iíd rather see a bump or two rather than read several posts about the exact same thing. Which seems to happen a million times more often than bumping a thread. What Iím talking about is the same question asked repeatedly by different members when all thatís needed is to scroll down a few posts to get the answers they are searching for. But this as well is just the nature of the beast no sense in making a mountain out of a mole hill. Just lift your feet a bit higher.
