@greg legacy profiles? Like can you go more in depth with that? I don't quite understand.
My current idea behind this is to revamp the profile pages and provide legacy information on them. With the latter being the priority, it'd show old rep, likes, awards, username changes etc.

The bump button is live for all upgraded users!

There is now a new rule pertaining to replying to your threads now that the bump button is in play. You may not bump your thread with the usual 'spammy' bump posts. You can only reply to the thread if you are talking about an OP update, replying to a member, etc.

This system's cooldown is based off of the last post on the thread, not the last time you bumped. There is no cooldown on how many threads you can bump at a time, just don't abuse the system.

Only for upgraded users? Bad move.

Have a good one.
The bump feature itself for upgraded members only is not a bad move, allows those who pay for more features to have cleaner looking threads. The limitations for non upgraded members bumping their own threads can be reworked. Though I am kind of back and forth with it being exclusive or not as either way people are going to bump their threads regardless, it's just would it be better seeing a wall of all users using "Bump Bot" bumping threads or just the upgraded users.

This.

In the future, I may add certain limitations to the add-on so everyone can use the feature.
