Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that, on occasion, a thread gets "bumped" on the "recent post" page, even though a new post has not been submitted in the "bumped" thread? I failed to capture screen shots on the most recent incident (thought they have been numerous); however, I will next time. This thread is to document further occurrences. Please feel free to interject with your own experiences of this "phenomenon". Preferably via screen shots or other verifiable evidence.

I saw a thread by Majic bumped up to the top the other day. The weird thing was, the thread was from 2009 and Majic's was the only post.

This is exactly what I am talking about...not that particular thread....but this has happened a lot lately. I figure it has something to do with upgrades; however, I wanted to get feedback; as I'm not crazy...yet. Perhaps a mod will jump in with an answer....or they can wait until I have something tangible to back up our claim. It is a real phenomenon though.

From what I remember from years ago when someone else asked the same question and staff answered, moderators can 'bump' threads in the forums they are assigned to and sup-mods and above can bump anything they want. Sometimes it is a thread they find worthy/important, most often it's b&bq threads or ATS related threads like the Live Show ones. It's all pretty standard forum software/operational stuff, nothing nefarious in it.

That's it S-Dog.
While I can't see every thread that's posted, sometimes I'll give one a bump if it's pertinent to current events.
Or sometimes I'll see one that might have been posted during a lower traffic time, and I'll bump it to give it another chance. Especially if I see that the poster put some work into it.
Maybe a good thread got lost in all the excitement of a breaking news story.
Various reasons really.
All I am saying, is give posts a chance...

SD...you got a legitimate answer, as the most recent thread I recall this happening in was last week....it was an "emergency" NK/SK ATS live announcement. So, your theory remains #1; although, I have seen "seemingly" benign threads mysteriously bumped as well.

I bumped a thread earlier and it had only 1 reply but like 8 flags and 5 stars.
I forget which thread it was, but I flagged it too without replying because I had no time to reply but thought the author deserved a flag and star for the interesting read he/she gave me - yet I did not reply. No big deal really, just real life things pull people away from the laptop/computer and they don't get a chance to reply.
