Why are 2 year-old posts showing up with today's date?

There are a lot of these posts showing up today.  What's going on?  You only need to look at the responders' post dates to see they are all 2 years old.

    Jasper and NHM,

     

    Regarding old posts resurfacing, there is nothing wrong with the site nor has there been.  Please read the following announcement which was made a couple of weekes ago:

     

    http://www.rewards-insiders.marriott.com/blogs/community-managers-corner/2012/04/19/categories-are-coming-to-the-communitys-four-topic-areas

     

    The announcement states "We’ll go through existing conversations and move some that match these topics and categories so you may notice some older conversations resurface."

     

    If you are not 'following' the Community Manager, may I suggest doing so, so that you won't miss any announcements.

     

    Cheerio!

    Plut

      I agree with NewHilton and Jasper.  The re-surfacing of old posts with new dates seems disingenuous at the very least and actually a pretty dumb idea.

       

      As far as the suggestion to "follow the community manager", REALLY?

        I agree with NewHilton, Jasper and Shoeman....I can't stand these 'old' posts showing up as new ones when the date on the original post shows up as the 'current' date and then you see the first response from 2 years ago. If there is nothing that has changed on the site and nothing 'new' has transpired to change the issue at hand from two years ago, then Marriott has been left in the dust by competition that has changed.

         

        In other words, same old, same old.

         

        Marriott seems to have expended a lot of monetary amd talent resources to have this site be a re-hashing of two year old events. How about we stay current and Marriott starts applying those monetary and talent resources to addressing the issues raised here........

    Pluto77,

     

    Thanks, but the moving of posts should not be applying new posting dates to them.  The originial post should continue to maintain the original posting date... so there is something wrong with the way the site was developed.

     

    I am 'following' the communitymanager and I suspect jasper is also.

    Thanks pluto77, that's right. We're applying categories to old posts and in the process moving posts that belong within other topic areas. Unfortunately this process does require us to edit a post which in turn make it appear as new activity. So you're right that old posts are resurfacing within the activity feed and within any of the recent content sections throughout the site, but we're working through these on the weekend to minimize its impact. But this process does not change the date each post was actually created.

     

    So if you go into any of the topic areas, click the content tab, you can browse threads by recent activity or date created. Here are two examples within Destinations:

    http://www.rewards-insiders.marriott.com/community/destinations/content?sortKey=content~creationDateDesc&sortOrder=0&itemView=detail

     

    http://www.rewards-insiders.marriott.com/community/destinations/content?sortKey=content~recentActivityDateDesc&sortOrder=0&itemView=detail

     

    Thanks for your patience. If you click on any of the categories within Destinations you'll notice how quickly you can find information about local attractions, restaurants or family vacations.
