    Are you asking why the algorithm bumps a post?

  • @BobCross sort of, but why not exclude the unregistered users as we seem to get so many bumped posts...

The purpose of Community bumping unanswered questions (questions with no accepted/upvoted answers) is for users to review and take action if possible:

  1. Is the question on-topic/answerable? Otherwise, flag/vote to close the question.
  2. Are any answers helpful? Then, upvote them.
  3. Are any answers bad? Then, downvote them.

It doesn't matter if the questions are from unregistered users or not because we only care about the content.
