1 Bump

What does bump mean in group posts?

I am relatively new to this site. I have been reading lots of posts. Most of the things I have figured out on my own. But what does bump mean when someone replies to you with it.  Can't figure it out.

  • It puts the post back to the top of the list without saying anything. You literally bump the post to the top.

  • Some times it is just a game that is played to get the most bumps or activity for a post and the group. Other times it is to show that a post in a group needs more attention. You may not be able to contribute but if you think others can you can bump it and it will be more likely to get attention because it will then show up higher in the posts shown as being active.
