    I see "bump" in posts frequently. What does this mean?

    Whenever someone posts to a thread it gets 'bumped' back to the top of the list. Someone posting the word 'bump' is just putting a thread back to the top the quickest possible way.

    In conjunction with "bump", sometimes you see 'TTT'. What's that mean?

    Also, I know 'peeps' is people, 'perps' are perpetrators, what are 'props'? Seems like it similar to kudos...

    Jeff: "TTT" == "to the top"

    We HIGHLY frown upon individuals who "bump"
    their messages back to the top.

    Please do not do it.

    Please.

    Speaking of which, the new "bump game" in After Hours follows precisely this useless practice, and has also contributed a discussion thread to go along with it. With the traffic this site gets daily, often causing it to close, I see no reason for this kind of frivolous posting.

    Jeff (Peterson):

    You're right - "props" are pretty much the same as "kudos." It's just another way of saying someone or something deserves praise. e.g. "I've got to give New Line props for LotR:EE."

    Eric, I'm wondering if "props" is short for something, like "peeps" is short for "peoples". Thanks for taking time to respond to my trivial question.
