Who is top? 

Who is top? 

Why do they only ever comment "top"?

Are they trolling us?

Also i'm like 90% sure that "top"isn't a location

Top isn't actually a single CBer! A lot of people thought it was (myself included), but actually anybody can comment as "top". People comment with "top" to move a thread to the top of a page if it has sunk.

Because of a random glitch in the system, the first comment on a thread buries it. To find it again, click on "submitted by" and go to the last page. A lot of CBers have topping names, like i'm MisTop. You don't have to post TOP to top a thread, I often just write a normal comment under my topping name. This is especially confusing to new CBers. Someone already topped this thread! 99% of the time, the second comment will be a top. If a thread isn't commented on for a while, it will sink into the endless threads (haha), and that's why you might see more than one top comment. Hope this helps!

This is actually so helpful. I never realised the first comment sunk the thread. I always just thought: oh darn, my thread disappeard. :(

Also, quick note: a "top!" post only tops the thread if the first post has already shown up. I know I didn't know that until very recently, so yeah. Happy topping!
