DIC has no rules on bumping, but the following is just my opinion. It depends on the forum. For the more active forums like Java and C++, give it a good 48 hours or until after the thread falls off the page. For other less active forums, I'd say wait maybe 48-96 hours. Really, as long as you're not constantly bumping, you should be good. :)
