    Bumping Threads

    Does BU have a rule with regards to bumping threads. Some of the other Boards I frequent ask you not to bump a thread that has had no response in 30 days or more. Does BU have a similar rule?

    Thanks,

    Re: Bumping Threads

    I find that if a topic hasnt had a reply it needs to be bump by a reply just to show
    that it is still there and can be active..

    okay lets say that i post some images of a set and dont have the full set of images and someone
    comes along and says great post nice images but another person comes along and see's the topic
    and has the full set of images there more likely to share the full set.

    This seems to go very well at my site and works with members I have also notice that it works at
    other sites as well. I'm all for the bumping a topic at least 60 days old which is two months..

    Thumbnails only stay clickable for a while, because the imagehosts are not supporting them any more after a non-active period of time.
    Try to use our [search] before posting a set of pics to see if they are not posted yet.
    If you make an error, there is no harm done and we'll have a look at the same pictures again.
    Just because I rock doesn't mean I'm made of stone.
