I only answered my own thread a week later, interesting.
Was it the "head shot pose help" thread? That's the only thread I see that you started, and I see four total posts in that thread by you.
Also I think that if you post directly below your last post (responding to yourself), then it won't move the thread to the top either.
I believe Fred implemented this programming change to allow new and fresh threads the chance for visibility in the presentation boards, which are (in general) designed to showcase photographic work and not get repeatedly hammered down by a few aggressive serial bumpers. Through no fault of your own, you just got caught up by the programming logic.
The "Photo Critique" board is where many questions are asked though. And on any other boards that are not presentation boards you can bump forever.
