    New posts getting added to last post.

    So here's what happens, if you are the last to post on a thread and then make another post, regardless of the time since the last post, it adds it to the old post.

    Can the time limit be changed for this "feature"? I have posted like 4 times in my wagon thread and it just adds it to the last post that I made. It doesn't bump it or anything. I tired editing it and even making a new post quoting the last one and it still just combines it into my old post.

    I have found this slightly annoying as well. I did notice however that there were 2 threads in which a second post was made a month(s) after the first (no edits) and it bumped the thread.

    I kind of understand if you are trying to avoid people bumping threads constantly but it makes it difficult to update threads. Maybe a limit of around a week would work?

    I'd say a few hours would be the normal for most forums.

    It should automatically bump threads now, even if you were the last poster.

    Nope, it's never done it for me.

    Even if it is adds to your old post instead of creating a brand new one, it still bumps the thread now. Everything is working fine as I tested.
