I want a livery to come in IF and with their their recent blog post stating that a few liverys will be introduced. I wanted to know if bumping helps in that matter and where do you draw the line between bumping and spamming?
A few questions I had are:
Does bumping inconvenience the community?
How often are you permitted to bump( every day, hour, week, 2 days etc,.)
Is editing a post a form of bumping?
Does bumping help in making that feature to be implemented?
if you are curious these are the ouverys I am talking about.
Bumping doesn’t have a huge inconvenience in my mind. There is no “permitted” time, but I wouldn’t do it crazy. One a month is usually good. In terms of editing, I believe it might bump if you do the original post. Otherwise, no. People bump features constantly if they become lost in more popular topics (again, maybe once a month)
Depends. Basically, when you edit a post (eg. the pencil icon shows up) yes, the post will be bumped. The pencil icon will only show up in senarios in where some “major” edit is made. If you are just fixing a typo, then it won’t bump. However, if you’re editing a typo after [set time by admin of the community] (usually about 12-24 hours) then anything will be marked as an “edit,” even if it’s just a typo. But if you’re adding a link, or doing anything that adds to the topic rather than editing, then it will bump it regardless of the time after posting.
So basically: pencil=bump
No pencil (small edits before set admin time)=no bump
I don’t really see it as an inconvenience. In most cases, bumping does more good for that particular topic. When bumping, people could continue that topic’s discussion after a long time of absence. It could also cause other users to become interested in that topic, and users may consider joining in on the discussion.
Tbh, it depends. I think it has to do with the intentions of the user. If they want to grab other’s attention, they may respond with content giving further insight into the topic. Users might also respond with something simple such as an image or a simple reply. Then again, anything could bump an old topic. Wether that be a simple phrase such as “I’m just bumping” or more information about that topic.
However, these may be wrong. Someone may correct me if anything I said is not true. :)
