It means they are moving or "bumping" the thread to the top of the forum line so that it doesn't get forgotten, or if someone wants to help others out on a topic that was exhaustively discussed they'll bump that thread to the top so that the information is accessable to dogsters who weren't here for that discussion. Also, there's a breed matching thread that has a loooong waiting list and dogsters who started a matching thread keep bumping their thread so they can stay in line or so someone else can chime in with their ideas.blue dog
