Let's talk about blues scale and the mandolin
Wayne, the purpose of the 'bump' posts that you see, and then disappear, are the way that I try to keep these three table of contents discussions together, and near the top of the first page that people see when they come to this forum. In a better world, they would be what they call 'sticky' posts... always at the top. But, that function is not available to me, so every week, I 'bump these three discussions, to bring them to the top again. Every few months, Scott, the owner of this site, cleans the discussion up by making those 'bump' posts disappear.
These 3 table of contents discussions aren't really discussions; no real need for anyone besides me to post to them, they are just what I came up with so there was a table of contents to the tunes we'd covered.

What are bumps?
Okay on the bumps, missed the post barb, was away for a while??????
Wayne, I am here, but a very traveling gal! Everything about this site is done manually, there's nothing 'sticky' to keep it at the top, and there's nothing done automatically. So, when I've got time, I have to monitor the site, and add the new discussions to the appropriate table of contents, with links. I wish there was a 'sticky' function, so the table of contents discussions would stay at the top of the page, but there isn't. The only way to move them up, is for me to post something, and I just post 'bump', so it moves them up. When I have time, I go through and delete the posts, and then I have to write Scott (the owner of the site) to then delete my deleted posts! That's why you don't see all the 'bump' posts early on. I've had enough time to keep bumping them up, but not enough time to go through and delete them, and then ask Scott to remove them! I try to keep these three table of contents discussions together, also. When anyone posts things in them, it moves them out of place, since any post moves that discussion to the top of the page. I would prefer that these table of contents discussions are just that... table of contents, and if members would like to post something like a question, or a comment, that they just start a new discussion, rather than put it in these table of contents discussions. Not a big deal, when I am working on it, I am able to catch it, and 'bump' post them back in the order I'd like them, but it just adds more bump posts!
