The whole bump issue is very strange. For my account level, the server does prevent any bumps more than the 3/d allotted by my account level. The curious thing was why some members appeared to be able to bump even multiple times in an hour.
They can't. Their excess bumps don't have any impact. They receive a notice that their bump has been disregarded. If you have a specific example where that has not happened, please let me know and I'll investigate. Please link to the exact post--not just the thread--that bumped when it should not have done so.
yeah, I don’t blame the people because Paul said it’s within the rules. But I just can’t seem to locate those rules @Paul where are those rules that don’t seem to match up with account limits?
I don't think I said it's within the rules; I probably said those excess bumps have no impact. If you make useless bumps so frequently that it's annoying other users despite not actually bumping anything, and we find that you're using automated tools to do so, we're probably going to ask you to stop, at the very least.
His reply didn’t make any sense to me. For one of your threads I see 12 bumps. Somewhere else I saw somebody mention a bump every 15 minutes, that’s almost 100 a day
I think people are confused about which posts actually bump a thread. If you do that, you're just make useless excess posts that don't bump the thread.
That would solve the problem, which appears to be a technical matter that Namepros has yet to address.
As far as I can tell, there's no technical issue on our end. If you make excess bumps, they'll be ignored: your thread won't be bumped. The post will still appear, but it won't have any effect.
Ah, ok, I don't know if it will change much, there are some other users...
If you have a browser plugin that's automatically bumping threads, and it's causing issues for other users, please consider fixing it.
