You are doing yourself a disservice by "bumping" your topic at all. By doing this, it shows your thread having been replied to and most of our staff will then ignore it. Post once and wait for help like everyone else.

I see what you mean, "Bump Topic" button would indeed stop people from bumping their posts by posting another reply to it;; it would still show 0 replies. But if you bump it, it would still be bad as most of the staff look for topic's in earlier pages than 1 (for old topics). It would be as bad as double-posting/bumping with a reply is :blink:

Hardly no one checks the posting date when looking for topics, if it's on Page 1, it must be new -- if you'd bump it with such a button, people would have to check them everytime and it would slow things down a bit, at least it would for me since I'm not good at judging timezones (I live in Finland).

Just thought to reply (even though ScHwErV was faster -- and right).

Besides, no fear of going unnoticed; remember the Waiting Room :whistling:
