Every now and then, people post questions, or other things that they'd like to see an answer to, make comments that they'd like to see more people respond to, or make suggestions that they don't want me to forget about. After not getting an answer for a while, they will "bump" the thread back up to the top of a forum by making a post that says "*bump*" or "up" or something similar.
I got sick of seeing posts that said nothing but "bump" in them, sooooo I came up with this. If you'd like to put a thread back up to the top of a forum without having to respond specifically, just hit the new "Bump Up!" button.
I've added in a 5 hour flood check, so each user can't bump a thread more than once every 5 hours.

What a great idea! This is something I can use for the AO Newsletter #2 when requesting articles or for important questions when no one responds and everyone gets swamped with the general chit-chatter that often goes on.
