|If you're adding something to the topic it's fine, but don't just bump a topic to call someone stupid or something like that.|
Oh, ok, thanks

Or better still automatically send him a PM every day regarding what to do and what not to do when bumping 10 year old threads.

@lzw3: omg, I don't do those one word bumps anymore... IF I bump at all, it's to add to the topic--but I haven't bumped in a while, so yeah...

Bumping is not allowed, unless it adds useful information to a topic. Forget about bumping if all you're adding is - "I like that too..."
Simple solution is don't bump.

|I made a important post in that topic|
It would have been important like 6 years ago.

|^^ Alright, you're confusing me. You basically say to bump and then not to bump, so what the hell?|
Don't bump topics that are several years old. The link you have posted shows an example of what you shouldn't do. If somebody wants to know the answer of a question then he/she is going to create a topic anyways. So no need to bump old topics to make new members aware of certain things. If they have a question, then they will ask.

This got locked because of lzw's idiotic posting, I made a important post in that topic, iight. I let people know they can just know how to swim!!
Yeah man, you only bump if you post constructively eh?

|You post it in this topic.|
The 'Have a Question? V2' topic is just for random questions but not for questions regarding GTA, programming, and all the other things that have their own sub forums on this forum.

So these are basically questions which don't really encourage discussion and require a direct response from other people.
I can see when Radoonhagaydoon bumped those topic you responded to it which only led to making things worse.
If anyone bumps a really old topic, you don't have to respond to it like you did with the links you have provided. Just report the post and explain why the topic should be locked or removed etc. After the topic is dealt with. A Moderator could kindly tell the violator to stop, chances are when a Moderator tells someone to stop doing something chances are people will listen to it. If the screen flashes and returns you to the Forum it means the Posting has already been reported. Again, Donít Respond to it like you did man, just report.
