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

Which actions modify /posts/row/@LastActivityDate? Creation and edits seem obvious, but what if, say, the post is a question and the owner accepts an answer?

For all posts, the LastActivityDate is set/reset when a post is created/edited. For questions, the addition/edit of an answer also resets the LastActivityDate. Basically, anything that will cause the question to be bumped onto the front page of the site. Accepting an answer does not bump the question to the front page, and therefore does not reset the LastActivityDate.
