The following older FAQ is displayed on top of the "active" question list - with Reimer as "last updater"- although there is no trace of "recent activity" in his user page related to that FAQ.

It's the second on this screenshot:

All questions order by activity

Some hours before my name was shown there - and I had not edited the FAQ, too.

Is there something particular to this FAQ - possibly as it is a "community wiki question"?

FWIW: Other "surprising updates" have been discussed in this FAQ, but they all left traces in the "Recent activity view". That's obviously not the case here. - No big deal, anyway.

Ha, and now Justin is the one - "Round Robin"?

It seems that activity on this FAQ leads to "hidden" updates on the mentioned FAQ, too...

I've noticed that too. Immediately after commiting my answer and returning back to the main page both questions where displayed as having been changed 7 seconds ago, but I definitely didn't modify the other question (the 2'nd in the image). No waving a dead chicken over the keyboard or other kind of voodoo involved.

I never touched it!! Honest! (And my dead chicken is still in the fridge - I only get it out when advised to by Breck)

Possibly a new feature: "Bring up related topics, as well!"

Smart, that OSQA software:)

Now its Hartmut Branz. He edited his own question "Temporary table meta data" and then appeared as the owner of the last activity on Breck's question "Connection-level TempFilePages can hit 32,768G in"

(13 Aug '12, 08:14) Justin Willey

I don't think so: Hartmut has actually edited this page, cf. his Recent activities.

FWIW, I do know as I had read his former answer:)

As such, that's not that mysterious...

I see what you mean now - he answered and then deleted the answer - so nothing to show on the question itself. Thanks
