"Throwback Thursday"--a compendium of bump-worthy threads
« on: May 08, 2013, 05:48:03 pm »

RouxB had a fantastic idea to drum up some interest around here:  every Thursday, everyone can bump an old favorite thread.  Serious or silly, doesn't matter.  Who knows, maybe it'll kick-start new discussion.  

Let's try to keep links to them them archived on this thread, for future reference.  Otherwise, a bumped thread can just drift back into oblivion.

For example:  
1) I would like to bump a favorite thread, "Brokeback Slang aka Much Ado About Brokeback".  

2) I can use the search function to find it--used advanced search for key words (much ado) and click on "search in topic subjects only".  I find it easily.

3) I go to the thread, reply to the last message and say "bump" or some other message.  

4) When I do this, I can highlight the address (up top), right-click to copy, and then paste in this thread, along with the title.  

5) And it looks like this:  I'll give the name of the thread:

"Brokeback Slang aka Much Ado About Brokeback"

and the address:

OH, I like that.

So we should post to a thread to bump it up, and then link to it here?


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

What a great idea - Throwback Thursday. :)
I'll have a look around and bump something later on.

And for me, it's not Thursday today, feels more like Sunday instead. ;D It's a public holiday and the first day of a four day weekend! 8)
