    As a new member, I was looking at some of the Buy / Sell items and see the BUMP used in some post. What does it mean?? Nothing else is posted.

    When you post in a thread the thread goes to the top of the forum section it is in.
    Bump up a thread. 'Bump' denotes that someone has made a post for the purpose of moving a thread back to the top of the list, and in this forum it also means the thread will also appear in a new posts search.
    It's an internet convention.

    Gear acquisition syndrome. Or something you get with severe indigestion when you look into your wallet an realize you have no money to pay for the latest and greatest mu43 toy.

    Ah, now it makes sense :rolleyes: Thanks KS11.

    My WIFE (Witheld Income From Expenditure) helps to keep my GAS under control.

    (only joking though, she's bought me most of my mu43 kit so far)

    A new great acronym! WIFE. Love it, though the coffee is still burning my nose.

    We need a sticky with standard acronyms, it seems ;)
