    Search did not yield such a result but scouring the interweb I saw something very interesting
    Classifieds & Market Watch rules - The Fountain Pen Network

    I think this should be a standard platform across all forum software. In particular it would be very useful in a classified section

    personally i would hate to provide this option to a user.

    but then, there are cases where i have wanted to have this feature.

    i guess there are going to be extreme views about such a functionality.

    Your're right. When I say "standard" I mean built in, and leave it to the discretion of a site owner where and when to enable. The functionality in say a classified forum would be most relevant, rather than a normal discussion thread as I see it :) It is seemingly timed at 24 hour intervals or at least set that way so it is not as if it can be abused. Of course a member may take it upon themselves to bump a thread in the normal way with a post rather than use the button. That's why it's only a suggestion in this "Small Features" board :p

    I've earlier proposed something even better: automatic bump threads ever x-hours for max x-days (in case of no replies). No button needed, no worries about not getting a reply. We haven't had one single thread without replies since this mod was installed on our forums (that's years now!). And no one has a problem with it being at work either (if that worries you).

    But I bet we will never see this being made a default XF feature, so it's probably going to be an add-on if someone decides to code it.

    The link in your sig doesn't work as they expire after a period of time.

    Strange, it still works for me. Thanks for informing me though.
