    Basically any question that has an active date greater than 6 months. You can see the active date on any question on the right column underneath the tags, asked date and viewed count. – Jeff Mercado Jan 19 '13 at 20:53

  • It seems like the Community bumps back to the front page may make a post active again too. – Tim Malone May 22 '16 at 8:24

The activities the badge is referring are:

  • Editing an existing answer
  • Editing the question
  • Adding a new answer

For example, on Integration with the RDF module the active timestamp, which is clickable, takes me to the question itself, which I edited; on NFS Directories between 2 Servers the same timestamp took me to this answer, while now it takes me to the question itself, which was edited on 2015.
