Bring Up My Post.

People post a message saying 'BUMP' if the sole purpose of posting is to get that topic higher up on the list of topics, which is sorted by the most-recent post in it. It's essentially a way to attract attention to a topic, when their question isn't answered yet or problem hasn't been addressed, or sometimes just because they think not enough people have had the opportunity to respond yet.

Tip: don't overuse BUMPs.

Overbumping is a no no.

Usually it's ok to Bump once the thread reaches the second or third page on the forum listing. Not the second or third page in your thread..
