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

For example, latest activity on the Economics proposal is now "5 days ago" even though a new comment was added yesterday. In my opinion a new comment is something noteworthy for me as a follower and something that indicates progress, so it should be included in the definition of "activity".

Edit: To clarify, I am talking about the general comments section at the top of the proposal.

It shouldn't. Comment is a ease way to create fake activity to keep proposal live. Just a new follower, new question added or votes should be considered as real activity. Count comments as activity is to reward bad behavior.

Some proposals are live because one or two users posted comments criticizing the proposal and ask to close it. This behavior keep the proposal as a living-dead.
