What was/is all the "bumping" stuff going on in CafeMom?

I am totally oblivious to what all the bumping obsession is/was all about recently. I thought I'd ask out of sheer curiosity.

  • Lol, well, I saw tons of bumping posts in Newcomers Club and just didnt get what it was all about.

    I am very involved in my groups so I dont get into random conversations in the big public groups .... but Im very curious!

  • I don't know for sure but i think its because of the whole earn credits level up thing... you get points for bumping so many questions a day

  • ^^^^ doesn't get the question!
    The bumping posts are a way to increase activity and page views in the group. Also the more replies a post gets the more often it will appear in the popular posts list under the groups tab. It could also affect how high up a group appears on the active and conversation lists. Seriously it's just a cry for attention.

  • Liansmommie, thanks for the elaborative answer. I had a hunch that this is what it was all about (I'm in the CM Discussion Group with you) and I remember a lot of debate and controversy regarding those topics.

  • It bumps a post to the top of the pile so it will get more answers.

  • Hotmama, thats not what I was talking about. I know what "regular" bumping is, of course.

    Im referring to what the answer above yours explains, about these big bumping contests everyone was having.

  • what type of member you are. depends on how many replies youve made... if you look at everyones response, they have a "gold member" or a "ruby member" or "bronze member"
