I don't usually have questions since there are such good go to advice on how to use PBS but... isn't there always a but.  Can someone help me I see in discussion forums (Bazaar) that people are able to BUMP their topic back to the top (some way)  How do you do it?  After years of trading I have accumulated lots of credits and want to sell in Bazaar but can't figure out how to put my post after a few days back on page one.  Can any one help me I do use the computer but somethings remain a mystery.  Thanks to anyone that can help.

All you have to do is "post a reply" to your own thread.  Some forums have rules about how often you are allowed to bump your thread.

There are rules to the Bazaar forum, Here. They're in a 'sticky', always at the top.

What you're looking for is...

(2) Members may "bump" in this forum a maximum of twice a day (bumping = posting a new post in a topic for the purpose of keeping the topic on the "front page" of the forum topic list). Adding a new post with new information is not considered bumping. If you edit your original post to update information there, this will not "bump" the topic. Note that topics asking for credit loans may be bumped once only and never again after that. Adding a new post that is not really necessary may, under some circumstances, be considered 'bumping'.  Read more about this in this Help doc.

A key point from what Cindy posted is that you have to post a new reply to "bump" your topic, editing a previous post won't move your topic.
