i see quite a lot of postings on here where people just say "bump". what does that mean? or is it really obvious and should i know already?

I have asked the same question in the past and was told that if you have posted a query and had no reply for a while just go to "reply to this subject" and put bump in the text.
This takes it back to the top of the pile again, otherwise it just gets lost down the line.

Ruskle.

Standard forum speak; it "bumps" threads that have dropped off the radar. As such, it's normally used only when a thread has dropped down 2 or 3 pages or has been unanswered for a few days. Refresh and ^ are variations of it.

At the top of the page where it shows " Search Forum", type in the word Bump and you will see many previous threads re this which I hope will explain all.

Some use the word bump some use < it all serves the same purpose moving the posting up the line if theres been no answer for a while.

Another good one is "bookmarked". This means if you want to keep the info on a certain thread then just post the above and you can access the information under "your postings" rather than trawling the threads or using the "search postings" box on the top right.
