To whom this may concern,
Hello, I'm Devin and I think you should revise your bumping policy. Lately I have seen a lot of people posting on a thread 1-2 week later than the last post. For example, boeing. The thread got kicked due to bumping. When I saw the date of the last post (9/14/16) and the latest post was yesterday (9/21/16). Its now locked due to bumping. The rule says 2 months after the last post, this was a week. Thankyou,
Devin

Hey there Devin,

If you look back up a few posts in that thread you will find that it was actually bumped. There was a post on the 18th May, the next post after that was 9th September. That was therefore a bump. The bump limit has been 2 months for quite a long time, I don't think they are going to change that.

Lost Horizon's correct. No matter when the thread was bumped, even if we're catching it months late, it can and should still be locked.

I don't see any reason to change our bumping policy. It keeps the forums relevant and up to date.
