"Pumping" an article means you are voting for that article. You are allowed to vote only once for each article you like. The articles with the most votes show up on the front page. The Top 5 articles on the front page are the most popular articles.
When you go to the front page, underneath the 5 articles, you’ll see “All Recent News”, click on that link and it will take you to every article that’s been posted today. Next to each article, you’ll see a green thumb-up that says “pump to homepage”. When you click on the green thumb-up, you will have just pumped/voted for your own article or any other article that you find interesting. The 5 articles with the most pumps/votes are the articles that people read and comment on. Have a great day.
