    Please see the BYC foum rules .

    6. No Spam. Spamming is posting the same thing several times. "Bumping" (posting to move a thread up on the forum list) and cross-posting (posting the same thread in several forums) are examples of spam.

    Please stop bumping your posts.​

    Seriously... Miss Prissy is right. Stop that. Unless it is an emergency and you have waited a bit for help.

    * What is the acceptable "BUMP" time frame?? I usually try to wait about 3 hours (minimum) unless the emergency is bad. . .

    It's so busy around here sometimes your post just gets lost before anyone has a chance to answer. That's why it's great to go to the unanswered posts and help where you can [​IMG]

    I try to answer the unanswered posts I know a little about, at least get the ball rolling. If peeps bump posts they don't show up under unanswered posts [​IMG]

    when you go to your thread, and just say anything, to make it go to the top of the thread index.,, in the "recent posts" or to the top of the "area" your the area your thread is at.now go to index and see how this will be at the top of "recent" , then hit refresh every minute and watch it disappear,,, if noone bumps it lol [​IMG][​IMG]
