Bring Up My Thread: BUMP.
Writing BUMP in the discussion box will bring tha particular post back to the top of the discussion board.

Sorry; no idea what 'flip' means.

Oh yes, I do know what 'flip' means. It's when you reverse the order of the thread. For instance you may want to read the thread from first to last posting, or you may want to read last posting first - if you click on 'flip' above the message box it will reverse the order your posts are in. Try it by clicking 'flip'. Click again to get back to your original order.
