Questions list with "5 mins" circled Question with "Protected on Jul 31 '14" circled

I use the Stack Exchange app and came across this by chance. I think that the time shown in the first photo is the time when the question was uploaded. Is this a bug or am I wrong somewhere?

  • No but the question can only be protected if it was asked in 2014. The question was asked today. :P – Daman Arora Jan 31 '15 at 11:03

You are sorting questions by recent activity, in which case the last active timestamp in the question list includes the most recent answer, comment or edit.

Although the question was posted in 2013, a new answer was posted to that question a short while ago, the timestamp reflects the last time that answer was edited.

  • Ok thanks. That was my query. Cheers! – Daman Arora Jan 31 '15 at 11:05
