Wumpst is a mysterious poster on the Dee-Nee Forums whose identity and name has taken on an almost mythical quality. Wumpst has posted only once on the Forum since joining in January 2005. The name is thought to be a bastardization of the metal band Wumpscut, although this is purely speculation. "Wumpst" has been turned into the popular phrase "bumpst", currently popular to use instead of "bump" when "bumping" a thread.

There are many "lurkers" on the forum, but Wumpst became so famous because of a thread started by rdub asking for more information about him. It just kind of grew into a running joke since then.
