what does bump mean?

Maybe this is just my problem, but what do people mean when they post “bump” on a thread?

They try to bring up their post to the top of the page so more people will read it.

  2. to cause to strike or collide: He bumped the car against a tree.
  3. to dislodge or displace by the force of collision.
  4. Informal. to dislodge; to appropriate the privileges of: When the general found there were no additional seats on the plane, he bumped a major. The airline bumped me from the flight.
  5. to demote, promote, or dismiss: He was bumped from his job.
