There is another forum monitored by someone that provides tracking/status information for vehicles that have been ordered, but not yet delivered.  The rules for the voluntary, benevolent service state that the way to request an update on a vehicle is to "bump" the thread, but I don't find instructions describing how to do so.  Since I'm older than dirt I do know how to dance the '70's disco era "Bump", but I don't know how to do it to these threads.  Would someone be so kind as to illucidate me?

Is it me or ias this forum over all kind of slow? I thought with all the Ford/Lincoln owners that things would move a bit faster. I don't see much reason to have to bump a thread as it doesn't move down too fast.
