Something happened after the shutdown last night and I got over 30 posts this am in my communications que, all at least five months old!
Anyone else notice this?
Yeah, whenever content is modified it shows up as activity. So when tags are added, questions are marked as answered, or discussions moved to a different topic they appear as activity. Older conversations are still around (even if not top of mind) which is why its really helpful to create descriptive titles. We do what we can to mark any changes like this in real time but like you've noted they can sometime happen at once depending upon the maintenance work.
Unfortunately, this causes you to have to scroll down a long ways to find the ones that show as unread so you can keep them all marked I just selected the "mark all as read" to not have to go find all the old ones.
Glad I saw this post. I've got three communications I still can't find. I'll just mark it read! Guess there's nothing I really need to look for.
