    I'm back after a couple of years' break. Is there now a way to tag other people in groups? I want to get my husband here.

    It might be easier to give him this link.

    You can tag people by using @ before their name
    Like @RebekahR84 and it will offer options of names... choose the one you want when you see it and it makes a tag. Since our group is private I don't know if it will work to bring him to a tagged post until he joins the group though.

    Right. He has to join the group to see threads here. I'm hoping I can get a vote to go Public again sometime later this year.

    What does "bump" mean for the social media illiterate.

    Making any new comment on a post will bring it back to top of the current discussions so that people will see it easily.

    The bump is just a comment for the purpose of bumping it back to the top.

    It's something that things go in the night, or a 4-letter post to move a thread to the top of the recent discussions list, so folks can find it.

    Two of the many inconveniences in this private group are poor search capabilities and - unless I'm missing something or forgot :s - the inability to link to other threads in the mobile app (something that is simple on a laptop)

    We're just bumping the thread up to the top so people can see it again....Or new people can see it for the first time.

    That is just what some of us do with older threads like this to get it near the top of the list for the newer people.

    Bump means to bring someone's post up on the message board.. basically jolting it to the top x
