Why do some (22)

thread creators feel the need to constantly bump their own threads? Am I the only one that finds this practice annoying?

If it's meant to die then let it go... Obviously no one else cares. End of rant/ innocent

Because it is irritating. Is it an ego thing?

You been on here 20 years you said last week, so I guess you've outlasted quite a few, doesn't irritate me, I just just scroll past what doesn't interest me, my ego doesn't need any stroking either..dancing

I've been on forums for 20 years. Never talked about this site. I've observed that some people feel the need to bump their own threads despite lack of interest from anyone else. I never understood it and found it particularly annoying when they clog the boards. It's just one reason I do not participate all that much any longer. Not the biggest reason, but just another one.

I hear what you're saying, but clog is a bit of strong observation, especially when the forums have been dying for a while.. I know I'm guilty of bumping, I use the music threads as a kind of library, don't shoot me for that..sigh handshake

I agree it's an ego thing. There are certain members who want their thread to have the most posts ever seen in the years CS has been around. The factors that encourage people to post are just about impossible because you have people from all over the world who have very different lifestyles.

I read a post this morning where someone responded to a post and they said "I can't top that" referring to what the previous poster wrote. It has become a game of one-upping everybody else. mumbling

People who bump a thread are assuming that members didn't see that thread. That's not what happened. They aren't interested in posting for various reasons so they move on to another thread or log out.

I will not stop posting to my fav creations... especially anything music or comic related because some egotistical control freak classic whiner wants things done their way. This forum is about amusement not fall in line like i experienced during boot camp on the island. Sir, yes sir, sir. . wave

Music threads are a separate entity. That's cool in my book for whatever it's worth.

I suppose clog is a bit strong. i was thinking back to days long ago when forums were actually fun and busy. But FFS, if you create a random thread and it's not working then let it go. It's not an insult, truly.

laugh We gotta override the negativity, I'm still a believer in the scroll past it and never let it bother you, the thumbs downs are just sad fecks who take a dislike to someone no matter what they post and refuse to have a bit of fun, they would rather whinge about the good ole days... Oh how I wish I had of been a CS'er back in the day.. Keep on rockin' in the free forums I say..head banger peace

100% I hear it, you gotta admit the forums have been going downhill, even before I got here.. I'm not taking all the blame..laugh cheers

We all have an ego some more than others. If I write a thread and it doesn't get a good response it doesn't bother me. What does annoy me is when the OP does a pick and choose who he/she will respond to.

devil very mad

I bump my own threads from time-to-time - if replies are not coming in and I’m wanting to talk...it works, btw...you’re probably not the only one that finds the practice annoying, but the solution is extremely easy. Change the channel, hover the stylus/mouse and choose something else, etc... Good heavens, we have a serious global health crisis, the police are killing people, homeless camps expanding...a thread bump is rather insignificant, don’t ya think?professor
