    So while I really don't have experience with xF, or even back-end forum hacking in over a decade, I'm pretty sure the following is certainly doable.

    A “Bump Button” hack .. just a button at the bottom of the thread in bumpable forums that:

    1- Shows up only for the original poster after the forum's allowed “bump time”.

    2- Pressing the button would automatically add a "Bump" to the thread.

    3- At the same time simultaneously deleting any previous “Bump”.

    3b- You could also make it so that ANY new post effectively deletes any previous "Bump".


    I used to do little hacks like this on my old vB based forum all the time .. it’s been 15 years and you use xF .. so I doubt I could really help make it .. but xF is supposed to be infinitely easier to do this sort of thing .. and I doubt it would take more than few hours work for someone who knows their way around xF code/templates.


    This would help:

    1- Keep threads a lot cleaner and make real information easier to find.
    2- Keep post counts more accurate because in all honesty "Bump" should not count towards a person's posting total as it really isn't content in any way.

    Hello Ategy.com,

    That is an outstanding suggestion.
    I'm sure Admin & Tech will A) See if it is doable, and B) Add it to the list if it is.

    Thank you.

    Peace,
    Cyberian
