It isn't thread bumping, it is just a way to word my confusion/question without making the subject too long. How long is too long to reply to a thread? I really like helping the forum but don't want to get banned for replying to something with help to the problem the user was having that was maybe 2-3 weeks ago. The rules don't give a set amount of time and do not even state if its against the rules really (they only state saying something in a thread with intent to try to get a reply to it is an offence) so I am confused whether it is allowed or not. I've only been replying to threads with users who have had their account for at least a few months but I don't want to get banned for doing so. I sent this in an email too but did not realise there was a forum section for things like this.
