Is it two or three months for a bump?

I do. Unfortunately, there's nothing to back us up in a dispute. There's been hardly any fiction posted in Atomic for yonks, and when EMI started posting his serial he did each instalment in a separate thread. The rules get upheld even when they're silly and become inconvenient norms.

Diplomacy is just saying, "Fuck off," in a socially acceptable way.

I don't understand the fixation with locking bumped threads, and generally not having threads that contain everything rather than a thousand threads all saying the same thing. The rest of the internet seems to get by.

That being said, if I don't think something deserves a new thread, I'll put it in another thread on that topic. If that bumps the thread, I don't really care. If people come in and act like retards and post crap off-topic - usually "omg bumpz are teh lolz! ursobad!" style crap - then I RTM those posts as being OT spam, which sometimes gets them earmarked for deletion. Occasionally if the thread is locked anyway I'll RTM and complain.

Then again, I'm not known for making the job of the mods easy, just because it's easier for me to 'play nice' than for a bunch of other idiots.

Even before bump tags, needless bumps were always frowned upon. It's just that now, non-needless bumps have idiots clamouring like flies to shit, because they don't know better/like to feel self-important/etc.

You're the only one who can decide, at the end of the day, where you want to stand in the grey area between doing what you think is right, and placating 'mods' - where it could be any mods from a group, and you don't know how they're going to interpret things.

By the way, a bump is 2 months.
