Recently I found that if Q/A edited (say:Today) than It should be active Today. But It is not showing line:


no active-line

Even if it is edited today:edited

Why it is not showing or is this option not available now?

Note:https://askubuntu.com/questions?sort=active shows question as soon active.

"Activity" is everything other than it being posted.

  • Your first has answers from today, edits today and comments today. These all count as activity.

  • Your other has only been posted. That activity is implicit.

This is all part of the mechanism that decides what is how the front page is sorted.

  • Comments don't count towards activity. For example see this question, there was a comment today on the question itself, but it says that last activity was a month ago.

  • @Oli : my question-askubuntu.com/questions/464651/… has now comment also today but it still not showing active today. So, I think Question should have answer then it shows active today!
