    Ie 'bump' up the post to the top of latest threads so more people can see it.

    It's just someone bumping their thread up in the new posts order, so it can potentially seen by more people and get more responses

    It stands for bring up my post. Most people just look at the most recent posts so if someone hasnt replied for a while the post gets lost so if you bump it it goes to the top of the list and people see it
