Bump old threads

    I have tried a couple times to revive an old thread by posting a new comment. For a short time is appears in the "latest" section but soon disappears again. Why, what I am doing incorrectly?

    Pete it will disappear if no one else posts on it because other threads that people are posting on will move up the line to latest.

    Posting "bump" isn't taking part in a discussion.

    People discuss what they want, you can't force them - and why should they post something meaningful to the discussion if you can't be bothered to?

    I delete "bump" comments when I see them.

    OK, Simon. Posting 'bump' was to reopen the discussion I had started or participate in, but if you prefer I can restate the original thread theme.

    Simon - "...I delete 'bump' comments when I see them."

    That should be a meme...

    ..."Delete the bumps!"...

    Why not start your own post on the topic, give your opinion and any basis for it and then link to that other post. If someone wants to read that info they can. Otherwise they can add their viewpoint as of that moment. I find it helpful to search for old posts, to find points that were good that I forgot about. Then I use them in my post.
