Topic Bumping...
« on: May 18, 2011, 02:12:19 PM »
I'm really unsure about this. I want to recreate some activity on a few boards but the topics I had in mind were already made and have been inactive for more than 50 days or so. Is it alright if I do bump them or is it best if I go make a new thread?

I know, I sounds like a total newbie when asking this. But I just want to be 100% sure since I'm active again.

You can bump an inactive topic if you have really useful information directly related to it that will spark renewed interest in the subject.  Obviously, I don't want to see topics getting bumped everywhere without good reasons.  If you find that what you want to post is a bit of a stretch compared to the original subject, then start a new topic.  Hope that helps!

Ana, why is it that in literally every post you have made lately, you have crossed something out? :blink:

Yes, you have answered my question. Thanks, Patrick! I'll definitely keep that in mind.
