Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Go to the view where the questions with most activity and interest in this month are displayed. At the bottom right corner of every question it shows something like:

2h ago User Name

I assume this is the time of the last modification and the user who modified the question.

The second question in the list is closed for quite a while now, but it shows

2h ago some user

and this keeps changing.

How can this happen when the question is closed?

People can still edit existing answers... I expect this is what happened to bump this.

Sure enough, glancing at the recent history of the user attributed on the "hottest questions" page:
