  • A button for "Bump"(bump this thread button )

    Well I was thinking that this feature would make it easier to bump threads,specially area51 threads.What I'm saying is,instead of typing "Bump Bump" as a reply and bumping a threads,having some sort of button which will add the reply automatically would be nice,specially for those who are having many giveaways.That's my idea :)

      This has already been suggested before, good try though.

            Too bad that it was denied. Could have been a good addition to the site. Maybe it was way too muck work.

              I think its a good idea but JustJenna makes a good point Here:
              How hard is it to type bump?

              We aren't going to do anything that lowers the number of posts in the Area 51 forum, that is counter-intuitive to being found by crawlers. Post count is imperative to a forum's rank on Google.

              Denied.

              Because it's useless and it's detrimental to the forum. That is why.

                That's like saying "how hard is it to type 'thanks' or 'nice thread'? We shouldn't be reducing the post count so there's no need for a 'like this post' button"

                    Well what I'm saying is to bump a thread, we have to have a post with more than 10 letters,imagine about someone who's having like 10 GA threads,another few in VIP section bumping all those 10+ threads with posts of more than 10 letters,waiting 10 seconds after each reply?This bump button will automatically add the reply without a time consuming.

                    I think like button is there to prevent unnecessary spam.

                      That's what I'm saying. Posting "bump" is just as unnecessary as saying thanks.

                        Bumping is a different thing than posting "hey nice GA".Only the OP is allowed to bump his own GA/Request threads to show that threads are updated and active.

                          I don't mean it's unnecessary to do it, I mean it's unnecessary for it to be a separate post instead of a button that updates the thread, similar to the like button.

                            Well I was talking about a button which applies the reply automatically.Like the Intro approving button.

                              I think it's b/c bumping serves a purpose since it moves the post to the top and is necessary to keep a GA active. Saying "nice post" doesn't really contribute. They both contribute to the post count of the forum but bumping does enough of that already and serves another purpose as well.

                              I'd like to be able to collapse bump posts but i don't think that's possible
