Ok, for all of you fellow arfcomers or arfcommies, what's the difference between "bump" and "tag". I understand that "bump" means up update the topic, so that it will be read more frequently, but what about "tag"? Is it the same thing?

You can bump, but you can't tag.

I am neither going to bump or tag this thread.


Crap I just did both.

bump, goes to top of page 1 for everyone to see.

tag, taging the thread so you click my active topics later and find said thread.

Bump is meant to send the thread back to the top so others can see it more easily.

Tag allows the thread to show up in the "My Active Topics" list.

Damn. Beat by 16 seconds.

I type to damned slow.

tag...oops! I meant bump..doh!

Bump is usually followed by grind, whereas tag is a stand alone action.

Anyone can bump a thread back to the top of the page.

If you want to "tag" a thread, you must join the Team. Then you will have a button called "My Active Topics" and when you hit it, you will get a list of all threads in which you have posted, including ones where you only said, "Tag".

Join the Team.

I just hit the subscribe button if I want to find a thread later.

You do not need to post in the thread to subscribe to it.
