I disabled it for registered only users ... people simply couldn't be bothered to read the warnings, so it went bye bye.

The bump feature is a feature that when someone replies to a topic that topic moves on top of all the other topics.
The newer a topic is (updated rather by a new reply or just a new topic) the higher it stands out.
This is a good feature since you can see what is new and what's old.
The annoying part is when someone replies to an old topic. It bumps the topic in other words it moves it to the top and people are not too happy with that since they have probably read that, replied, or it's old.
Get it now? ;)

erm, "Bump Topic" is a feature that bumps a topic without requiring you to post.

It was next to "Email Topic" right above the first post.

The quick way of doing it (via the Bump feature), was as psoTFX stated abused, so he's stopped normal users from being able to use it.
NOw, you have to do it the old fashioned way (reply to the post :D)

I should add that because the feature was abused so heavily we are looking at ways to stop, or at least reduce the problem. So chances are it will return when the relevant changes are put in place.
