For these, I would suggest a ‘reset bump date’ for any where no new information is added. If you see one that’s been missed feel free to send it back down the list so as not to annoy Jagster trouble the next person.
Yellow dot or something else similar as indicator of new topic would be better option. Or not, because then there would be another element more increasing noise’ish. Perhaps italic, slightly diffrent font?
Somekind fact is that ability see shades of grey depends on light of environment, screen etc. It is quite often lousy choise unless there is enough contrast. Otherwise is a bit like white text on yellow situation.
Sure it works nicely if one has some mega-inch-wide-superior-screen, good sight and state-of-the-art working lights.
And clicking three years old topics just to see it is another automatic bumped one, and second time one hour late because same topic was closed is… annoying
Funnily enough, this topic got auto-bumped just the other day:
Which also led to this one:
But perhaps now Meta has a super-swish moderator (and a handy group of community experts) we may be able to achieve a similar set of goals with different means? Maybe a data-explorer query or two tucked away in the #experts category perhaps?
I’m not sure the premise of this topic still stands? Though I appreciate there is still some discussion over whether to handle the auto-bumps differently or not. Perhaps we should discuss that further in an Experts topic and close this one out?
