Someone will usually answer even if it is only to say "sorry, I have no clue why this or that is happening".
Actually, bumping is against site rules.

It may seem like a silly question that doesn't deserve an answer but usually the person asking the question is in real need if help/advise. Usually I find myself trying to answer their questions instead of someone more experienced.
Whenever I "pass" on a thread, it's because it's a question that should be googled rather than asked. These are simple questions, like "Is my pH too high?" or such, answers that have been answered many times in many places. The AA collective should not be a replacement for personal research with google, but rather a supplement to it.

Really? How odd. I did not know that. I understand it can get out of hand. Just file everything I said in the circular electron bin. Not the first time and wont be the last.

This is straight from the rules:


"Posts should be well formatted. Use paragraphs, punctuation, and capital letters appropriately. Excessive use of Netspeak/LOLspeak (internet slang) and texting shortcuts (b4, str8, etc) is not permitted. Posts with violations may be edited or deleted without notification.

The language of this forum is English. If you are not a native English speaker, do your best. We are glad to have you as a member and will be supportive and polite.
"

OK, so you can only post a question one time.
And if the first 5 people to see it cant answer it, and it gets flooded by new posts to the next page and no one else see's it, you cant bump it in hopes that others will see it.

You certainly have a right to post your opinion... but try to keep your opinion civil, mature, and on topic please.

"Participants may not post or bump threads to pad post counts or to keep a thread active. Bumping is posting useless information, posting one-liners or other 'content-free' posts to deliberately keep a thread hot."

To me that means you can't bump in order to increase your post count or try to keep a thread active for no reason
. But iff you can't find your answer any other way and you really need help and if your topic has fallen off of the first page, I don't see why you couldn't bump it just once. I'm not a moderator here, but I think that in some cases bumping would be acceptable.
