    It's when you post on your (or someone else's) post to bring it to the top of the page....

    Hope this helps,

    Bump.

    Sorry couldn't restrain myself. I'd say there's etiquette in when you bump your posts as well. If this was my original post, I would not be bumping after a couple hours. Maybe a week or a month if you're still looking for response. It's more common in 'For Sale' or WTB posts as some forum users may not regularly come here.

    keep in mind that:

    1 - Rapid bumping your own listing without adjusting the price and continuing to get NO response from others could suggest that your asking price is NOT of interest to others and continuing the delusional behavior may lead to insanity

    2 - Randomly bumping everything you see, like and or friends posts (over bumping) may lead to Blindness or the growth of hair on your palms....

    Chuck, correct me if I am wrong, but this forum only allows five bumps before closing a "for sale" thread?
