When new members join The Bump, a 72-hour waiting period goes into effect that won't allow you to post comments or start discussions. We encourage you to take this time to check out the various forums, and review our Community Guidelines for more info and best practices.
Please note, the 72-hour waiting period begins once you first visit The Bump Community pages - not when you first created your membership account.
You can check on your 72 hour waiting period by viewing your account details in the Community section:
- While on any message board or forum within the Community section, locate the 4 small icons toward the top right of the page: globe, inbox, star, person
- Click on the first icon, the globe, and then expand the All Notifications listing at the bottom of the box that appears.
- Below your Username, you'll see the date and time that you officially joined The Bump Community.
If it has been over 72 hours, please contact our Customer Service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
