Are you allowed to leave a "Bump" comment on your own question, if has not gotten an answer or has very few views?

    It should be clarified that leaving comments in no way "bumps" a question on any SE site. Edits are what "bump" questions, and edits specifically to move the question to the top of the front page are not welcome. – au revoir Oct 16 '14 at 13:19

No. Comments don't bump questions anyway. If you would like more exposure for your question, the best thing to do is set a bounty.

    @RustyMembers In general, comments that don't add to the post are not welcome. Comments bumping the post would definitely fall into this category and likely be removed. – fredley Oct 16 '14 at 9:50
  • @RustyMembers The comment didn't boost the question up, the super minor edit did. – Arperum Oct 16 '14 at 9:51

    Another thing to note is that the Community user will automagically bump old posts with no positively scored answers, if a post goes for a while without an answer. – Unionhawk Oct 16 '14 at 9:53
  • oh okay thanks. – RustyMembers Oct 16 '14 at 11:58
