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

When I post something, it moves down the pages fast. Does it jump back to the top on an edit, comment or answer?

Most people find questions they would like to answer based off of the tags your question has rather than it's position on the page.

If you question is good and upvoted, it will appear farther up some pages such as the "Unanswered" section. Also the community crawler will occasionally bump questions.

You can bump a question when editing it. Search for questions here on meta using "bumping" (here), some considerations have to be taken for it as it is easily abused. It is also considered editing when you retag a question. Commenting does not bump the question, but answering does. Other than that Coyote already pointed out the community crawler.

so what your saying is i shouldn't reedit my posts so much? or that the measures in place are just a background feature – s32ialX Mar 31 '10 at 18:38
Does the bumping actually happen on Stack Overflow now? Didn't the rules change? The answer may be in Recent feature changes to Stack Exchange. – Peter Mortensen Nov 29 '15 at 15:27
