    Bump means to bump the post to the top. And TTT means Take To Top. Basically they both mean to bring a post to the top the page. Welcome to ArcheryTalk.

    Welcome to AT.
    Lord, I thank You for the opportunity to go out on the hunt. I thank You for the time alone to think and reflect on life. I thank You for the time with hunting friends, enjoying good fellowship, good stories, meals and drinks. Thank You for the beauty seen during the hunt and for the game taken and shared. I thank You especially for a safe hunt for myself and for all the hunters who share the field. AMEN.

    Ok i have heard this explained like 5 times and i get what it means, but why do people do it? I have seen people put TTT like 15 times on their own thread. Why not just leave it with the original post and then people don't have to scroll through 2 pages of TTT just to tell them to go to the top? Am i missing something?

    Because some don't think that members will see it if it's not near the first page or two of the forums.. they forget that we actually know how to 'search' for threads..

    it's not to tell people to see the top of the thread they write "TTT" to bump their thread to the top of the forum. they write "TTT" because there is a minimum of 3 letters to reply to a thread. used most commonly in classified threads to make it easier for buyers to see the thread

    As a dealer if you dont keep your thread on the first two pages you may not ever be seen as well as someone else may get your business because of it.

    I usaually don't go past page 4 much in the classifieds because I'm looking everyday and I've seen everything. But for the other people who don't get here but every few days,it gives them a chance to see it eaiser. It's good to bump it 2 or 3 times in a week but 10x's is getting carried away.

    Actually, I think the rules state that a classified ad shouldn't be "bumped" more than once a day. Of course that doesn't include actual queries/responses on the thread.

    Frankly, if I had an item up for sale that didn't move in 7 days, I would close that thread and open a new one and "modify" either the subject line, content, pix, or price - maybe all of it.

    Actually the Rules State that a Thread should be Bumped or Taken to the Top a Maximum of 4 Times per Day... I know that I have Warned people in the Past for Excessive Bumping,Mainly because it is Unfair to the other Sellers; not to mention it is Agianst AT`s Classifieds Rules;Specifically Rule#22... J.R.

    I knew there was some rule - glad you clarified it. Too bad there isn't a time limit on classified threads. It seems that some are nothing more than a gathering place for the users of a certain product.
