I find it a little bothersome that if you Edit a post, it doesn't even at least make the thread title bold again to let people know. Yes, I know, "just bump it"... But that's not exactly cool, especially if you're the last person that replied on the thread.

It'd just be nice to let people know you edited something without having to bump the thread. Not everyone checks the thread ten times. :D Well, just a suggestion!

This sounds nice, but I wouldn't want someone to be able to bump their thread by simply editing their post. It could be abused, as someone could "revive" their thread just by editing in a sentence or a comma in the first post. This way it's much easier.

You have two options if you want to "bump" up your thread to alert people of new information:

1) If the last post in the thread isn't yours, just post alerting people of the change.

2) If the last post in the thread is yours, delete it and post a new one.

Both are acceptable, and both accomplish what you'd like.

I agree :)

Or if you want to keep the info, copy and paste it, and delete it and, repaste it. Basically bumping the thread with the same post over and over again :)
