I am not interested in questions bumped by the Community user. Often times, they are too old to be answered, or already have correct but unaccepted answers.

How do I hide questions bumped by this Community user?

    Just filter the questions via the 'newest' button..? Assuming you have a tag selected.. – Josh Crozier Sep 27 '13 at 3:44
  • @JoshC Even the newest filter will show questions being bumped by Community user. – geff_chang Sep 27 '13 at 3:45

    @geff_chang The newest tab only shows recently asked questions, so it would never show a question bumped by Community. You'd only see those in the active tabs. – animuson Sep 27 '13 at 3:55

How do I hide questions bumped by this Community user?

I don't know how you can do this, but at least I can address your concerns about the questions that get bumped.

The Community user only bumps old questions that have no upvoted answers.

  • There's no such thing as "too old to be answered" here. SE sites have a necromancer badge to encourage you to give good answers to old questions. Go ahead and answer them if you want to.

    Unlike, say, a forum, questions here are timeless, new answers are always OK, and "necroing" is not a bad thing - you get a silver badge for it!

  • If they have correct but unaccepted answers, the question was bumped because none of those answers were upvoted. If you're confident a bumped answer was correct, upvote it. This is the sort of positive outcome the bumping exists for, so go ahead and do it! That question won't get bumped anymore.
