The rules on bumping are vague. Annoyingly vague. A bit like the rules about grave-bumping.
That certainly was the case a while ago.
Maybe its changed.
I rarely bump anything, so I'm hardly an expert.

10 minutes between bumps less than that and it is spam

this is based on experience in the clan recruitment section where people would bump less than that to keep at the top of the page and as such fmods would tell them to stop


Personally if somebody is prepared to bump a thread at that rate despite the thread clearly not been of interest to forumers then they're fine to do that or bump it despite it being on the first page again they're allowed to do that but they'll be laughed at by the rest of the regulars which should be enough to make any issue you have bearable


Like that guy who was being a "try hard" in general a couple of years ago bumping his thread while it still being on the first page don't know who he was trying to impress well I do...


Obviously a fmod could decide to lock it for spam or their being no discussion or x reason if they really wanted to as I've seen it done.

You don't need to 'spam' your own thread(s). There is a bump button which bumps but does not insert a post.
A little hard when you run multiple threads over multiple accounts though - and sadly the bump button only works once every 10 minutes per computer.... :(

Would be really nice if other forumers could use someone else's bump button on their thread also..

Oh and I know of a PMod/Community Helper (will not name him) who uses a bot script to automatically bump his clan thread every 10 minutes. To my knowledge they've been reported several times directly to Jagex via email and nothing has happened to them - so it can't be too much of an issue for Jagex in regards to bumping if they allow such behavior from certain people. This was about two months ago or so when I last heard about it, so they may have stopped since, but who knows. :P

Ah yes. I've never had that problem because I don't think I've ever had more than one thread going at a time.

But this is where Jokku comes in handy ..... 201-202-200-65638060

Oh, so someone or even yourself can spam your own thread.

That's pretty disappointing.

Pretty sure you can report to Forum Help if someone is spamming your thread.

Very interesting but if it is who i think, he is a very helpful player for them in technical situations
