    I have sort of a question


    Hey everyone, I'm new to the boards.

    I've read the forum rules and I know that bumping of any topic is not allowed. However, I created a thread for a question about a week ago and no one responded. Is there any other website you guys would recommend for where I can get help? I don't want to keep making new threads either, as that would be a nuisance. Oh, and I already posted my question under the Ubuntu forums. Anyone else know of a good help website?

    Oh, and I'm not trying to be lazy, I just haven't found any hits on Google.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hello

    We don't have a rule saying that users can't bump their threads. In fact, we recommend that they bump their threads each day or so, when needed to get a response. Adding additional details about an issue being experienced is another good way to bump a thread. That said, bumping very old threads back to the top is generally not a good idea.

    I must've misunderstood the rules.

    Would a week be too old to bump?

    No, not at all... we usually look at 6 months or more as becoming "aged".
