I remember when this question was first asked. I also remember it getting "modified" by Community before, and it has now been "modified" again. In both cases, no modifications appear to have been made; neither question nor answer was edited, and the question's tags remain intact.

Is there an explanation for this phenomena?

Community will occasionally bump old questions with an unupvoted answer to the top of the list.

Community ♦ seems to be bumping new questions more frequently than usual

...posts eligible for bumping have gone at least 30 days with no activity, have at least one answer scoring 0 and none scoring more than that, and no accepted answer (also, they can't be locked or closed).

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm not able to suggest an edit to your answer through the UI, so: I suggest adding this quotation from the answer you linked to. ...posts eligible for bumping have gone at least 30 days with no activity, have at least one answer scoring 0 and none scoring more than that, and no accepted answer (also, they can't be locked or closed). \$\endgroup\$ – Dan Henderson Sep 4 '15 at 13:22
