What does bump mean?

Forum post message bump

A term often seen in forum posts, particularly when someone has asked a question and no one has answered it for a long time; by posting a "bump" message, the thread then moves (gets "bumped") to the top of the list of active threads on the website forum again, so it has a greater chance of receiving a response.

[A long time...]
User1: BUMP
