1 Bump

Why do some mom's not support the system of bumping on CM? Do you??

I just saw someone posting this on a question asking for you to bump if you like something. They responded that they liked it but that they do not support the system of bumping on CM. I was wondering how many of you feel this way and why?

  • Because for two years there were no bumps, vote ups, vote downs, or points here on the answers section. I am not saying that I don't like the change, but I sometimes will forget about the bumps and everything unless I see a question and think "wow, this is a great question".

  • I don't mind bumping a question I think is good (or crazy for that matter) but I don't like being told to bump their question and rarely will I bump if they demand it.

  • I think the questions to "Bump" as an answer are taking over the boards. I don't think they're a lagit question and shouldn't be allowed. They're taking over the real questions and it's annoying.

  • There is a designated section for bump-request type questions. If the question isn't in that section, don't expect people to be happy about it taking up space in a normal section.

  • Why bump? I'm not sure of the benefit of it. What's it all about?

  • When im up here its something to always do. I use the little scale, i call it and call it my homework when i have nothing else to do. So therefore for if it ask me to bump 10 today then i try to do that. Its all fun to me and sometimes you can really help people with these questions that maybe you want to answer but dont really know how. So I BUMP!

  • I usually forget that I can vote up or bump questions. I don't usually bump the bump if you like this questions, but I have bumped questions i DON'T know the asnwer to that I feel need an answer.

  • They need a stickectomy?

    Bumping is good to get questions and posts that need more visibility out there. Where it gets sticky is that people want the awards that with it in the answer section. Begging for bumps, like begging for credit should be posted only in the CFC section IMO.

  • I only bump a question if I think it deserves a response but I don't have an answer to give them.
