21 Bumps


Why do people only bump the questions that ask for it? I have asked some pretty good questions, I think, and have minimal bumps. But, when someone just out right asks for them, they get like 10. I don't think that is what cafemom had in mind when they created this...

  • I bump questions that I think I worth a bump, when people ask for bumps it's for fun, trying to get credits but Cafemom did create a "crazy for credits" category so we all just play along I guess.

  • I know how it feels, but it's really more the time of day you ask questions, too, right after midnight is a good time to get bumps, and late afternoon early evening.

  • I'm not on here a lot, just when the little ones are napping or playing. So I haven't noticed who does and doesn't get bumps...

    I give bumps when It's just a really good question and or it's a FUN sporadic question that I like.

  • I only bump good questions, well what i believe are good questions, really funny ones, what I feel is worth a bump. I don't bump people because they ask. :)

  • not get on here after midnight. I was on here last night and was so disappointed. People are asking questions for one person to answer..i couldnt go to sleep and thought i would get on here and they were just playing around with each other on here and totally ignoring everyone who had serious questions..loading up the questions with studpid crap.

  • I haven't been on here in ages, so I have no idea what's going on with the bumps and the questions... So I just answer whatever question I feel like answering, and leave it at that, heh.
