I've been noticing over the last couple of days that a bunch of super old threads (4-5 years old) have been getting bumped to the top of the forum. Can we not do that? Makes it hard to know which questions need attention; answering a 4-5 year old question because you didn't notice the post-date in small, grey-on-white font, is kind of awkward.
We can't really control whether a question is going to get bumped or not - if any of the events listed here happens it's going to get a bump to the top of the Active list.
Sometimes this isn't desirable - and it's why things like cleaning up old tags can be done a few questions at a time to stop the the homepage getting flooded.
If avoiding these older questions is the goal a workaround is to browse by new - by going to https://workplace.stackexchange.com/questions rather than the home page and making sure "Newest" is selected as the sort order (it's the default IIRC)
