Am I allowed to

    Am I allowed to "bump" my question up to the top (at least, after a reasonable amount of time has passed, to avoid spam) so that people will take notice and help me?

    I'd be ok with one bump.

    Re: Bump

    You should have waited about 5 days to make that post.

    Re: Bump

    does that apply to posts in threads? what if one would like to "bump" his post up to a certain order among posts, is that possible?

    just asking, no interest :biggrin:

    Re: Bump

    You can't change the order of posts inside a thread.

    As for bumping threads, I personally consider it acceptable only after at least a week, and the thread has scrolled off the bottom of the first page of the forum's thread list.
