Because your Thread is competing with every other thread for the front page of the Recent Posts board.
If a certain amount of time goes by, where no one posts on your thread, it drops down the list, as the threads that are having people add posts to
them are bumped to the top of the list.
If the Recent Posts Page for instance has a 100 slots on it, and a 100 different threads have posts added to them, since the last post was added to
yours, that is going to knock your Thread to the second page.
As soon as you or someone else adds a post to the thread, it will take it back to the top of the list, on page 1 and the process starts all over
It's a chronological system of rating.
