Hi,

It's extremely annoying to certain threads getting bumped over and over again.
You literally have to search for the replies that actually talk about the idea!

ESPECIALLY if the last reply that actually talked about the idea was well over a month ago. There's actually more bumps than replies in some of them.

If there's little interest in your suggestion, bump it once or twice but not for months on end!
The only thing these bumps are doing is bringing back the old ideas and drop the new, sometimes interesting ideas to the lower pages without getting much feedback.


If people want the idea to come into fruition, they can reply with a support or some feedback to keep it on the first page(s)

Greetings

Hello IceRevenge

Your topic is not new game content, but about the fact that bumping is allowed on forums. As such, I've moved your thread to Website & Forums because that is the appropriate place to discuss forum policies/rules.

I apologize.

I know that bumping is allowed, but it's really frustrating when it's done in the ideas forum.
Many ideas are barely read or not read at all because some active bumpers keep their own ideas on the first page to make sure they're read.

Some smaller ideas don't get a chance for feedback like this.

Greetings.

I’ve seen quite a few, where posters will use a bump service. Which is fine everyone has the same access to various forms of bumping.

Only issue I really have, is the threads where the Op has clearly stopped playing and is no longer active on the forums. Yet their threads are still getting actively bumped, it doesn’t really help anybody.

Hello IceRevenge

No need to apologize. I realize you were talking about the ideas forums. This is still a good place to discuss bumping policy in the ideas forums. =) While bumping is allowed, that doesn't mean that it can't be discussed, particularly within the context of the suggestions forums.

I could prove my point by bumping the same old ideas on the last page over and over again. I'm not going to do that though.

Besides, this topic is already getting trolled. It might be better to just remove both topics I made (here and in ideas forum).

They had a discussion on the way back its barely on page 49 and will prolly be deleted soon but here it is:New Rule Consideration

Hey guys,

Thanks for your feedback - we won't go ahead with this then and will drop it for now. The sentiment behind it is to remove pointless bumps that serve no purpose other than to bring the thread to the top of the forums - we'd prefer for that to be conversation.

We'll have a think but clearly removing bumps isn't the way to go about it :)

Ta,

Hi all,

Another new rule we are considering is to outlaw "bump" posts. The only way to bump would be to use the button provided at the top of threads you create.

This is for a few reasons

- Bumps offer no discussion value
- They're essentially spam and are only used to (sometimes unfairly) bring up the post so it's seen, pushing down other threads that might have worthy discussion value
- Sometimes used only to farm post count

Obviously, this would be a fairly major change and we wanted to get your thoughts on this first. Please let me know your thoughts - we'll come back and review next week!

In addition, we have created another thread for overall forum feedback - I'd appreciate your thoughts when you have time :)



They ended up stopping the whole ban bumps overall proposal cause it would kill every guide and recurring thread like clans/events etc. So it was neccessary to keep bumps around.

Think they just stop people that bump multiple threads in a row nowadays to spam.
