Bumping: making a new post solely to bring it up to the top of the thread listing and push down legitimate discussions.
- In Before the Lock: Posting “I.B.T.L” or something offensive just before we lock a thread doesn’t add to the discussion and isn’t welcome.
- Quote for Truth: (QFT) This applies when you quote someone you agree with, but also doesn’t contribute anything to the discussion. Try to add something relevant or add a “Kudos” to their post.
- Poll Threads: Polls can be a good way to jumpstart a constructive discussion, but poll threads that don’t encourage any kind of discussion will be edited, locked or deleted.
You yourself just bumped an 8 YEALR OLD Thread!!
Do as I say not as I do?
As a former Poster of the Week, and author of the current Thread of the Week, I will take this suggestion into consideration.
My deliberations have been made and I have come to a conclusion on the suggestion regarding FiveFourteen and "Poster of the Week".
