Free ups!

Why the hell do people give "FREE UPS" 5 minutes after something is posted in the B/S/T forums?

It seems to be something carried over from busier forums. Some people give "free ups" so as to encourage others to return the favor. So, sometimes it isn't about bumping that particular thread but rather the "upper" wants their thread to be bumped without breaking forum rules.

That's my interpretation anyways...

I can see doing such if you are commenting on the stuff in the thread or asking a question or hell even throwing out a ridiculous never gonna happen offer but what the hell kinda thing. However the "Free Up" without giving any other comment or reason strike me as a bit stupid.

Also if you look at pbnation, once you post a thread, you got minutes before its on page 3. There are just way too many threads there. That how I remember it. Maybe thats why they do it.

But why is it a "free" up? Do people actually pay others to "up" their threads? I wouldnt be suprised, especially if they made their riches in the goggle strap industry.

If you dont agree with the above statement, consider this a "free up".

Part of PBN's income comes from "golden ups," which members pay for to keep their threads floating at the top for a set amount of time.

I thought they forgot they were using the internet and were thinking of playing old school Mario on a Nintendo. Those little green mushrooms... 1 Up free life?

Eh, dunno.
