It bumps the thread to the top of the list, so more people see it. Thus, the thread has a slighly smaller chance of falling into the fiery depths of the Pit.

When you bump something up, it usually means you're taking it higher than it was before. In this case, you are taking the thread to the top of the list.

So you can just type "bump" in your thread randomly and it'll somehow magically go to the top? Does a mod have to do that or is there some kind of program to facilitate that need?

No, it's kinda like how if someone is in your way, saying "excuse me" or saying "I will slit your throat and use your blood as syrup on my waffles" will both cause them to move out of your way. One is just more polite. You can say anything and your thread will move to the top.

Bumping is uncalled for, if your thread leaves, nobody wanted it, or what it had died off. A typical thread goes through 1 of paths.

Path 1: The thread is mildly popular and has a few pages, TS goes to sleep, when TS wakes up he/she checks on the thread only to realized it's gone.

Path 2: The thread is instantly closed due to either a breakage of rules or pure stupidity.

Path 3: The thread simply gets one or 2 replies before dying off into the bowels of every page past page 1, because nobody looks there. (this is where you don't bump)

Path 4: (unlikely) The thread becomes insanely popular and even on occasion has a V2, or becomes one of the ONLY threads, this is the desired but often unattained result.
