I think it's the third time around I see the same question necro-bumped by "Community"?

There are already three answers...

Where is that "dead parrot" icon when we need it?

[P]osts eligible for bumping are those scoring >= 0 that have gone at least 30 days with no activity, have at least one non-deleted answer scoring 0 and none scoring more than that, and no accepted answer (also, they can't be deleted or closed).

(from Community ♦ seems to be bumping new questions more frequently than usual)

You may also find Who is the "Community" User? useful reading.

  • I see. No "stop" criteria in this.

    @xenoid: No "stop" criteria in this. – All it takes is that one of the answers is upvoted or accepted.

The post notice for Community bumped questions says:

This question has answers that may be good or bad; the system has marked it active so that they can be reviewed.

So the point of bumping the question is to review answers on the question, not to get attention for the question itself. Only non-negative scoring questions with 0 scored answers will be bumped.

So.... vote on the answers and it shall cease to be bumped.

  • I have answered it. I can't upvote my answer and won't upvote others since they are obviously inferior :)
