We will add a new section to the forums very soon which will consolidate information for newbies.
On the topic of BUMP and SAVE>
BUMP -> It is sometimes appropriate to use bump, but should generally only be used by the Original Poster. If the thread does not get a response, and the OP still needs the info, then they can come back and post BUMP to let people know they are still looking for the info. Remember, when you BUMP up one thread, you bump down every other thread. There are alot of posts here, and if a thread gets overlooked, it is fine to bring it back to the top, but I would suggest not doing this more than once an hour, and only the most urgent requests should be bumped more than once. With the amount of traffic on the site during the day, the odds are, if someone has the answer, you will get a response within 2 hours of posting the question.
SAVE -> The reason we ask people not to use SAVE is that conversations riddled with SAVE make threads more difficult to read for everyone else. I once opened a thread that had 7 consecutive SAVE posts. As other people have mentioned, you can use the Watched Topics feature. Another good option is to add a folder to your browser bookmarks or favorites that is just for links to your favorite CC threads. Then you would have an easy to access reference point, and a quick way to grab links to share with others.
So basically, Jackie and I request that BUMP be used carefully and SAVE not be used at all. We are not going to get mad at anyone for using them, we just ask that members consider its necessity before posting it.
