BugOld Q/A questions get necroed by invisible 'updates' Pin
Stefan_Lang6-Nov-19 21:48
memberStefan_Lang6-Nov-19 21:48 
1. I keep seeing old Q/A questions back on the front page. When I check, I find it's old, and nothing has been added to it. Except that under the original question it says something like 'update 18 hours ago' - only there is no version history, indicating there is no update at all!

Example: How Do I Replace A Word In A Text File In C++?[^] posted years ago, 'updated' 18 hours ago, but no new version, no new comment or solution.


Similar issue: A Q/A question on the front page that claims it's been 'updated' 2 days ago, but when you go investigate, the question and all solutions and comments are from 2012. There has been one update to the question in 2018 - but that is not '2 days ago'! See complexity analysis of this code[^]

Since I also keep seeing people necroing old questions by posting comments and solutions, I wonder if that 'updated' date refers to such a change that may have been deleted afterwards? If so, can the web code be changed to make sure the update time stamp gets reset as well?
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
