So can someone explain BUMP to me. I know it means Bring Up My Post, but what does that mean? I'm missing something. (Don't you dare answer me with BUMP!)
Let's say you asked a question it's 2 days later and no one answered your questions so you "bring up your (my) post" hoping someone will answer it this time around.
