I requested this hack from nick back when he had vbnova because current bump scripts didn't allow certain features. I'd love to see it as a core feature. Bump your thread up to the top of the thread list (permission based) I have it set for admins so admins can only see the bump thread text and bump threads. It will say it's the latest post on the forum home via the forum status icon updating and last post (forumhome/thread display) updating (which other bump script features didn't have) The thread title will go bold (thread display). The forum icon will change as if there is a new post in the forum. This is a great feature to have to bump threads you don't wish to post in such as sticky threads, forum rule threads for that particular section etc. Edit: You could even make use of the alerts system with this one by alerting members of sticky/forum rule threads when bumped. Bump + Alert, or just Bump.
