Default new to the site - dumb question

Hi all --
I'm relatively new here ... and some of the terminology I see has me confused.
I keep seeing posts that say Bump. What does that mean?
Also, I was just reading a post that referred to different stamp sets -- what is a BG stamp?
thanks for your help!

Vicki

Bump is when people add another reply to their post to move it up the list - the most recently posted or replied to go to the top.

BG is background stamp. The large background stamps that SU sells.

Welcome! This is a great site! You will enjoy it!

Bump pushes the post up. If no one posts on it, it will eventually drop off the list.
BG - background.
There is no stupid question except the one you don't ask! (or the one you already knew the answer to!)

Hi Vickie, this is a great place!!

I am not so new and I still have problems reading the lingo. I just go with the flow, and if I REALLY need to know I will PM( personal message) the person whote started the "thread"

Ive gotten such good information from these people. They have taught me a W I D E range of things here. ( Not just stamping/scrapping)

Just be careful this site is VERY addictive!!! Get your chores done first!

Good advice, Jeanine, but it came too late - the house has already gone down hill! I'm already an addict!

Thanks Debbie -- WOW! Many of the acronyms I recognize for other message board but never knew that so many were commonly used!
I especially benefitted from learning the acronyms that specifically apply to stamping ... thanks to all for helping!

When any reply is posted to a topic it "bumps" it up to the top of the page in the forum. So if someone wants a topic moved up, but doesn't really have anything to say they just type "Bump" or "BTT" (bump to the top) or KITT (Kick It To the Top), etc.
