Just a way of putting your thread at the top of the forum.

It means that people want the thread to go back to the top of the list (Or in other words renew it)

Bring up my posting to the top of the page so as to keep it current.

This does the same one character on the Keyboard, then Post Response. Does that read better? no I have not been on the bottle

equally usefull is that it puts the thread into "Your Postings", usually where there is less traffic, so you can keep a better eye on it.

Also useful if you want to refer to the solution later, some times I just put > and post response so that it goes into 'My postings'

As more people POST threads with their problems, your thread moves down the Helproom page.

If you open the thread and post any sort of reply it is put back at the top of the page.

Someone may not have a useful answer but bumps the thread to the top of the page to keep it on page 1 of the helproom.

If you answer a thread then that thread becomes one of the links in "My postings" making it easier to find it at a later date.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
