lol if that's the case it would probably be too late by the time it gets to the point where it needs to be bumped right? but yeah... in some rare cases its ok, but generally it's considered spamming, and people get irritated with impatient people

bump after an hour or two but not less than that and you won't have a real issue.and no more than a couple of time a day. anymore than that is a sign that it is a bad post and no one care to respond. Then just drop it and move on.

Yes it's allowed, only if you need other people to respond urgently. Don't bump it because you want to show everyone something stupid.

It depends on the thread really. For sale, yes rather than creating a new thread.
