    The reason is simple: People don't do bumps intentionally. They simply don't know how big of a deal or how frowned upon it is (or sometimes they simply don't look at the date of the newest post). Notifying the person about it as clear as possible, while still giving the option to reply if it's really that important, is a perfect solution and should cut down most, if not all, bumps.

    I believe we should give the text warning display a thorough try first, say here a few months, if sucessful, we're in business, a job well done. On the other hand, if we proceed to recieve the unnecessary bumps, then we should move to the auto-lock system, with a quick PM to a staff member to unlock a thread, if so necessary.


    Simply because, it would be a smart move to test all possible methods to see which is right for us.
