Hi,

Thank you for your note.

BUMP means Bring Up My Post! 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. The posts on the group are in order of when the last reply was added.

Let us know if you have any other questions! We are always happy to help.

For some reason spell check, copy/paste - the right click box wont even pop up -, insert links and adding photos will randomly not work when I try to reply to a post. Is there a specific computer setting that could be causing this? It doesn't happen all the time.

What are friend requests? I keep getting them, but don't understand them so I haven't accepted.

Hi,

Friend requests are members asking to be a friend. They will be able to see your posts and photos and share there information with you. They can see what is on your profile and you can see what is on theirs.

Members send friend requests to get to know each other better.

Let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help!
