What is the general consensus on bumping your own thread in an attempt to generate more views and suggestions - is this considered rude?

Thanks,

Mike

Happens a lot more frequent in the FS forum.

In the main forum, I don't really see a reason to bump a thread with "TTT", "bump", etc, unless you have something to add, as Richard mentioned.

Thanks for your thoughts.

I don't have anything to add to the thread that caused me to ask the question, I'm just aware that despite there being a huge wealth of experience on the board, not all members are frequent visitors and once a thread has slipped down a page of two the chances of someone offering advice is greatly diminished - hence the question.

Thanks,

Mike

If your question hasnt been asked and you are still in need of help, i say bump it. maybe someone how knows the answer hasnt seen it. Plus, its easy to see the thread, think to yourself "i've already look at it and am not interested" and move your eyes down a centimeter to the next.

Always include what "oil to use" as part of the thread, then you'll never have to bump it.

For example in a thread title, "Help with water in cylinder head and engine bay and BTW is Quaker State 5W10 Non Synthetic the best oil to Use?"

:D

If you are asking a question and there are no satisfactory answers, and you've done a search, then a bump after a few days would not be inappropriate IMO. However, most of the people likely to answer technical questions visit the board very regularly.

I'd agree with this...adding "sorry guys, I've stuck out with searches and really need some help" would add to the request....
