    Over at the Army, I just noticed they have an option where you can bump a thread back to the top of a forum without actually making a post. Any chance of seeing that here?

    Scroll down to the bottom of a thread over there - at least in the Romper Room (try this one: http://216.10.20.170/ubb/Forum10/HTML/000112.html ) and down at the bottom left there's the options to close, move, delete or bump - I don't know if Sarge meant for these options to show - 'cause obviously the first three are mods only things - but maybe he is so that we have the bump option

    Well I did put this feature up but then I discovered a really bad unfixable annoying bug with it, so I had to remove it. Sorry.

    Not having something is better than a "really bad unfixable annoying bug" anytime!

    The bug is this. Let's say you bump a 10-day old thread to the top. In the main page of the forums, it will say the last post name is the last post on that bumped thread, not the actual last post on the forum. Kind of a convoluted bad explanation, but understand the problem sort of now?

    Makes sense. Whoever hacked that into the UBB script never made it around having to make the script THINK someone posted to it.

    A bump would be nice, but at least now I know a thread that gets popped back up has something new in it.

    Not always - sometimes it's just an "up", which is pretty much the same effect!
