Bump or ^ messages as replies - what are they???

I must be getting old,
When the Forum editor or somebody else makes a point or comment, other members often write 'BUMP' as a reply.
What does that mean?
or the reply is '^' or similar......

Helps keep the post at the top of the forum list
doesnt mean nothing in itself.Every post made to a thread puts that thread back at the top.

Some people do it so the thread appears in My Postings, so that they can track it.

Don't know answer + don't ask question = don't know answer.

No question is too basic on this forum.
