    Not to mention getting moaned at by others users

    I've seen posts on some forums that have been bumped about every 5 minutes for 20 minutes before somebody replied. Even then it was "please don't bump so much"

    I'd suggest if you actually go ahead and bump your thead, try to provide more information about your situation. Not only does this not come off as an obnoxious cry for attention, but it also provides everyone with information that might help them answer your question.

    This is what I usually do if I feel compelled to bump one of my threads.

    Is this still the case, even if the problem is urgent?


    Anyway, bumping is not always a good thing because some (helpful) people go to the "unanswered posts" section. If you bump an unanswered thread, it will disappear from the list and you will lose the potential help from those people.

    Can I bump this thread just one more time (like the old bump thread)? Oops I guess I just did with this meaningless response. Ok, I'm done -- I'm the only one amused -- I know.

    What is an infraction? How do infractions work? Do they ever expire?
    When someone posts in a way that violates the Forums Policy staff have the ability to issue infractions or warnings. In either case the offending party is notified by private message what the problem was. If an infraction is issued it will have a point value attached to it as well as an expiration date. If 10 unexpired points are accumulated by a user then all his posts must be reviewed by a staff member before becoming visible to other users. If 15 are accumulated the user is suspended until they expire and may be banned. The staff have some leeway in assigning a point value to infractions or whether a warning is better suited to the issue at hand. In the case of a dispute between a user and a staff member the Resolution Center is the place to go to file a grievance.
