Introduction
Welcome to the bumpers war! This war involves two opposing bumper groups, pizzabumpers and BrodoBumpers. They are lead by Cubinwitdapizza and Brododragon, respectively. The goal of the war is to prove who is the better bumping team.

Scoring
Bump quality will be determined by these factors(each rated 1-10):

Interest - Does your bump add anything to the conversation? 1 is a pointless bump and 10 has an amazing reason to bump and adds much to the conversation
Humor - How funny was your bump? 1 is completely boring(i.e "bump.), with 10 being a hilarious bump
Length since last bump - How long has it been since your last bump? The more you space out your bumps, the more points. Rating system:

1: Less than an hour since last bump
2: 1-4 Hours since last bump
3: 4-8 Hours since last bump
4: 8-12 Hours since last bump
5: 12-18 hours since last bump
6: 18-24 hours since last bump
7: 1-2 days since last bump
8: 3-4 days since last bump
9: 5-6 days since last bump
10: 7+ days since last bump

Your final score is decided by the sum of your points in each category

A Proper Bump
In order for your bump to be official, you must say the word "bump" at least once in your post. You must also add "@ProStar" in small text to the end of your post so I can be made aware of it. Once your score has been decided, it will be posted(along with your bump) in this thread and the score tally will be updated. Also, a post is a bump if it has been more than a week since the last reply to that thread

Recruiting
Anyone on a team can attempt to recruit someone to their side, and an opposing member can try to convince them to go to their team instead. If a new member is added to a team, a moderator must be immediately notified

Penalties
Any foul play will be countered by removal of points, the amount being up to the Moderator

Winning
The winner will be the first team to 250 points, and the entire world will finally know who the greatest Bumper team in the universe is.

Can I bring old bumps to your attention via tagging?

Also you quit BrodoBumpers because you were getting spammed and then started a war that will get you spammed even worse lol

Hm... only if they were posted after the bump war started (April 2, 2020; when pizzabumpers was created)

I've added a qualifacation to the rules:

Also, a post is a bump if it has been more than a week since the last reply to that thread

NEW BUMPS

So its basically sand lube? @ProStar bump
@Ayce of the BrodoBumpers has earned points for a bump! Score:

Intrest: 5 (decent, but nothing amazing)
Humor: 5 (sort of funny, but nothing hilarious)
Length since last bump: 10 (never had an official bump)

20 points for BrodoBumpers!

Bump. I know this is more of a discussion thing than question, but this is the best thread I can find. Doesn’t the DNF corner twist rule seem a bit dumb? I mean, you get punished more for something tot have almost no control over (corner twisting) than making a mistake (1 move off is +2).

@ProStar
Score tally:
Intrest: 10 (an actual question in a good thread. It's also a popular thread so it's good to revive versus creating a new one)
Humor: 3 (not boring, but not funny)
Length since last bump: 10 (never had an official bump)

23 Points for BrodoBumpers!

Also this one should still get ten points for time because the actual bump was on the 8th, over seven days away from the 2nd.

This is definitely one of the worst ideas I've encountered on the forums.
The bump war was already a thing, I just made it so that bumps are more helpful and not useless



NEW BUMPS

Bump. First one's free, then 100 cube coins per bump.

@ProStar
Intrest: 3 (Doesn't add anything to the conversation)
Humor: 5 (Sort of funny with cube coins, but nothing great)
Length since last bump: 10(actual bump happened a week after the last one)

18 Points!


I think pretty much every smart cube is bad, like even if you bump them it messes up the cube and the app. The Gan 356 I is probably the best and most reliable one though (not that it's reliable.)

@ProStar
Intrest: 7 (Gives his opinion and explains it)
Humor: 7 (Amazing and funny use of the word bump)
Length since last bump: 10

*gets calculator*



24 Points!

"If you don't know this, you're wrong" lol. anyway, I know this is old but it is pretty helpful and can be used to better memorize algorithms.

@ProStar Bump
Intrest: 5 (actually adds something, even if it isn't a profound point)
Humor: 5 (Decent)
Length since last bump: 8(the other two bumps happened a week before this one, but I gave 8 just because of how many he's submitted)

18 Points!

Any updates? Been a while. Hopefully applicants can tell us something.

Intrest: 7 (Asks a legitimate question)

Ahemm...
Welcome, first post in the Cubing Help & Questions sub-forum, which also incidentally happened to not actually be a question. But I’m also kind of disappointed because all it says now is Moved, delete. Did somebody say it should be moved to the ‘faces behind the id’ thread?

Bump @ProStar
