I may be the only one who does not know how to 'bump'  a topic to the beginning of the line. I am aware that you can only do it once every day....can someone explain it to me?    Thanks in advance.

All it is is posting a reply to your original post.  Go to your post/thread and the "post a reply" field is at the bottom of the page.  You can put whatever you want as the reply - some just say "bump", others get more creative.

ETA: you don't need to enter a subject, just put something in the text box.

You can type a response or just the word "bump" and hit Submit Reply. Or in some browsers, just hit the Submit Reply button without anything in the box. The new reply will "bump" it to the top of the forum.

Why to bump?    Unless running a deal in the Book Bazaar, I can't think of a real reason to bump.
