    The messages in the forum are sorted by date order. So the latest messages are up the top, etc...

    Now if somebody types a message and doesnt get a reply, new messages come, moving that one down the list and onto the next page. So if the poster adds a new message which is usually 'BUMP' it will then go back up to the top of the list.

    So basically 'Bump' is just a word they use when trying to get their message back up the top of the list for people to see it.
