  • it means they're bumping the post up to the first page/ top of the list of posts.

  • Posts end up sliding down away from the top of the page if there are no replies. So people "bump" them to the top by adding a reply.

  • Hi Honiepye,

    When you view a group's forum, posts are listed in the order of when the last reply was added.

    When someone posts "bump" in a reply to a post, they are bringing the whole thread to the top of the group so more people will see it.
