Is there a word (Internet slang welcome) for "frequently editing a post to make it appear at the top of the forum"?

  • I'd call it SEO. (Stack Exchange Optimization) ;-) – Jim May 22 '12 at 4:45

The verb bump refers to editing a post and making it appear on the main page but it does not refer to the frequency. You may write for example

Users who frequently bump their posts might be doing it to gain more reputation. However I do it to improve the quality of my posts.

  • Regarding your example usage, is it really considered bumping if you edit your post to improve its quality? – tony19 May 22 '12 at 5:21

    If your idea is not to really bump it for bump's sake, but a real edit, can we call it 'float'? – Kris May 22 '12 at 6:13
