I am new here, what is a "bump" and a "ping"? I love this site and want to know what this means. So I can start bumping and pinging, lol.

Hi Michelle...welcome to Free Republic. For more about me, click here.

"Bump" is pushing the thread's title to the top of the list so others will find it.

"Ping" is alerting other Freepers who have expressed interest in the thread's topic by including them in the "To:" field. There are also "ping lists," so that interested users see all posts on a particular topic.
