bump?

new to this online forum thing..

what does "bump" mean?
or BTT?
why is a reply made with nothing but a "bump" in it. does it bring it to the top of the list?

Yeah, threads with the most recent posts get "bumped" to the top.

BTT means Back To the Top, same as bump. Some folks want a post to be at the top of the index page so that it's more likely to be seen, so they'll just type "bump" or "BTT" and nothing else in a reply, moving that thread up. You'll see this frequently in For Sale forums, although it's generally considered bad form to bump your own thread more than 1-2 times a day.

Peronsally dont think you should bump stuff more than once a day. On top of that, I say one should wait until it's off the first page.
