    "bumping" is replying to your own item which pushes it to the top of the forum so it gets more views. Some people say "bump" some say "ttt" which means "to the top". You can only bump once per day.

    I always thought "bump" was code for "I'm asking too much for my gear".

    ...Oh, and welcome to TGP!!

    Sometimes you have to wonder after the seventh bump why the OP isn't getting the message.
