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

I thought this is quite funny, looking at user106011 profile:

I've found quite a similar question here, with the answer

Seen means the last interval check that was made

But there was only a matter of some minutes difference, while here, it's more than one year!

And the answer to this question: Account “last activity time” is not always updated states that:

Seen: equivalent to LastAccessDate. Activity threshold 30 minutes

So, is this a bug or not? Who can solve the mystery? :)

Of course, you don't have to appear to gain rep - questions and answers have a long tail.

Update: Checking the logs, that user genuinely hasn't been seen in a long time. The screen is correct.

Hoeray for passive rep! – Ivo Flipse Mar 25 '11 at 11:47

Maybe one of his old answer got a lot of upvotes. See:

Yes, I just looked at this, and most probably this is the case. – Adinia Mar 25 '11 at 11:24

He got 40 reputation this week, at 3/20 and 3/24

Indeed, I didn't think at this possibility..though it's just that question that make me look at his profile. – Adinia Mar 25 '11 at 11:25
It only takes 40 rep to get into the top 23%???? Wow. – Spudley Mar 25 '11 at 13:57
@Spudley, probably, he ranked #3919 for week with that 40 reps… – YOU Mar 25 '11 at 14:05

The last activity for the user was in 2009. So a last seen date of 2009 seems logical. It looks like this is one answer that people keep voting for. Up to 38 votes so far and at least 4 this week. However, it is strange that people are up-voting it so much since it was posted after an accepted answer.

Indeed, I just observed the same answer, that lead me to his profile. – Adinia Mar 25 '11 at 11:29
