Meta Question

Looking through the day's questions earlier, I came across one which was dated 2010. How is that possible?

The Jelly who asked has left the collective. Was it possible for me to have seen a four year old question in today’s/yesterday’s questions? Have the zombies finally got my brain or did I see it?

Zombies have arrived. Embrace their existence…

Which tab/filter were you viewing the questions in? I always use the “active” filter and frequently see old questions come back up.

@Seaofclouds is it not always on active?

Mine is by default, “Everything.”

@ZEPHYRA I think the default is “Everything”, which lists every question. If I set the General section to “orphans”, the question at the bottom of the page is from 2010. Maybe you accidentally clicked “Orphans” or something.

Default is everything, as the others have said. I like to look at the active filter to see which questions people are still talking about. Sometimes I’ll find an old question that I never saw before and jump in.
