    Re: What does "bump" mean in the sales forum?

    bumping is simply adding another post so that the entire thread gets put at the top of the activity list. The threads with the most recent posts are shown first and so bumping keeps it "alive." You will also commonly see "ttt" meaning "to the top" as another form of bumping.

    It's also common courtesy to refrain from bumping too often, once every day or two. Otherwise it is usually considered rude.

    Omega Seamaster Professional 2531.80
    NOMOS Ludwig
    Stowa Marine Automatic
    Cartier Basculante, Santos Carree
    Frederique Constant Classics Big Date / Dual Time, Classics Automatic in Gold (for the Lady)
    Longines Spirit Chronograph

    The rules say one bump per 12 hours, unless a major addition is made to the original post.
    Cheers,

    Thanks. Confusing to say the least. I get it now.
