  • It is not bad to bump a question. It is a good thing to get bumped that way hopefully more people see it. The more bumps the better, imo.

  • Bumps move questions up to the top of a couple of different lists, adds them to the links below the questions and to the banner links above the questions, occasionally. It just gives them more exposure so that maybe more people will answer them. plus the bumper and the bumpee get points and activity towardsawards.

  • People bump your questions when they don't have an answer for you but feel your question deserves an answer so they bump it to the top of the pile.
