It's nice to see a forum that promotes bumping of old topics. Early tonight I tried to create a topic and when I hit post, I saw that it wasn't posted. In that thread I mentioned that I had found similar topics that I wanted to talk about, but they were either two old or wasn't close enough to what I wanted to say.

I can't count anymore how many forums I've been apart of that give you endless crap if you bump and older thread and not create a new one. I will keep this in mind that bumping a thread is cool to do here.

I wouldn't say that we promote it, but it is certainly preferrable to duplicate topics.
If someone were to bump a topic without adding something of worth i.e. more than just "That's cool.", then that's just spam and against the forum rules. Similarly, we wouldn't want old rumours that have been disproved dragged up again.
I'd rather see people adding to existing conversation than creating a new topic just to add a poll, but the additions should actually add something to the conversation.
Anyway, glad you're happy with it!

Yeah, like the Earth One skin topic was bumped because someone asked a decent question, wich im actually happy about.
But the number of duplicate topics in the spoiler section just keeps going up. Needs a better way to be controlled.

There's been a lot of 'OMFG Check out my awesome idea for Arkham 3!' threads, when all the ideas could just be put into one topic. It seems some Users think their opinion deserves it's own topic and it's been going on for quite a while now.

It 'sticks' to the top of the forum regardless of when the last post was made.
