If someone posted a query and after a long time, nobody replied to it, and he posted again, saying "Could someone help me, please?"
The second post was deleted with the comment "Please do not bump your thread."
What is the meaning of the comment?
That's not fair to my friend who was the poster. Since he had waited 30 hours for a reply without a reply until her reminder post, I think it isn't fair to her.
I'll recommend that she join our forum.
It doesn't sound very fair in this case, but in some forums they jump in when people do things that are against the forum's rules to impress on the newcomer the importance of doing things right. Bumping posts seems fair enough to me, but I do delete duplicate posts when I see them here as they mess things up. It does depend on the type of forum- forums that have a narrow or very specific focus, like the ones that analyse HijackThis logs are very strict about the way people post, which may seem harsh, but if they don't do that, they'll spend most of their time trying to get things clear rather than actually doing what the forum is intended to do.
