Thread bumping
    #27005792 - 10/27/20 09:06 AM (1 month, 6 days ago)

I’m new to how everything works and apologize for the thread bump. There is so much more to this site than I ever realized. 

When I was using the search engine to search something I was curious about, I came across a topic being discussed long ago and wanted to get some feedback on it.

Instead of bumping the thread, should I have started a new post about it?  I thought that it would be better to bump a thread rather than start a new post on a topic that was already discussed.

Welcome to the site! You have nothing to apologize for. People get so ridiculous about that, I swear some of our members fancy themselves the bump police. I think that bumping an old thread shows that you've taken the time to search on your own and you're trying to keep relevant discussion consolidated in one topic. Nothing wrong with it at all. In fact I think it's polite. If we didn't want people bumping old threads, we'd make it impossible.

The only thing is that when you bump an old thread, most or all of the original participants may be long gone. So if you directly address someone when they haven't even been on the site in 10 years, you may look a little confused. But who cares. Anyway it's easily avoided by just acknowledging that you know it's an old thread.

Enjoy the Shroomery and next time someone complains about you bumping a thread tell them the dude who made the site says you're using it correctly. :cheers:
