Suggested topics from migration are too old


(Bart) #1

Our suggested topics max days old is set to 365 days, but still some users report seeing suggested topics that are older than that. While I don’t see this on my account, I have confirmed by switching to their account that this does occur - topics of 5 years old were shown.

Has anyone else seen this? Is this expected behavior?

Are you sure it wasn’t a set of topics they were watching or tracking from an old migration? Remember that “suggested” will contain topics that are specific to that user, and the fact that you saw it when switching to their account makes it likely this is the case.

I suggest dismissing all historically unread topics if this was indeed a migration.

Ah, thanks! I can confirm that this was indeed the case. I’ll let this user know, thanks!
