Allow users to bump their last post of a topic and sage ( not updating topic's last post date ) when replying.
Bump could be useful for :
Someone editing his post, and wanting to make it seem new.
Someone wanting focus ( and giving a sign of life so we know he still want focus ).
Sage could be useful for :
To answer a necroposter and not making things worse.
If you disapprove of a topic and still need to reply to it.
An example of a bump :
I'm posting a bump : http://i.imgur.com/Ndm5G.png
It concatenates to the previous post : http://i.imgur.com/QPz7z.png
But on viewforum or index, there is the time of the bump : http://i.imgur.com/5S98R.png
An example of a sage :
I post a sage : http://i.imgur.com/pwxAb.png

But on index and viewforum, the topic hasn't been bumped : http://i.imgur.com/u780f.png
