It sounds a good product, I've just use it to prevent topic owner UP their thread continoutly. Hope to see more features later.
Bump Limit is useful, simple, lightweight, easy to install, and works perfectly. I tried Up Thread by sonnb and Thead Bump management by Waindingo before finding this one, which serves my needs better than the rest. Thanks, Andy!
