Continuing the discussion from Automatically bumping old topics on a category:
I’m looking at this more like a way to engage users:
it’d be nice and engaging if the auto-bump bot first ask topic owners if they want their topic to get bumped.
something like facebook memories feature:
there would be other benefits, rather than user engagement, as well:
- only those topics will get bumped that their user is still looking for a discussion,
- users get the feeling that they have bumped it themselves, other users also see it as a human action and not a system push,
