A couple of minutes ago I stumbled upon this question. The reasons I'm asking this question are:

  • There has been no activity since Jamal♦ last edited it.
  • It has been migrated from SO, altough it's a question concerning broken code.
  • In the question list it says it has been modified by the community user

So why is an inactive, off-topic question (re-)appearing in the top list?

As you can see, it says "modified 1 hour ago" by Community.

The reason for this can be found in this meta.stackexchange answer

Short version: Community user randomly pings old, unanswered questions to give them more attention and a better chance at an answer.
