Technically it's "Answer this Question" that brings it to the top/first page. A "comment" in some sections or "reply" in DBC is added to an "answer" and brings the answer to the top of that post but not to the top of the page or first page.
Shirlene is right! Someone finds it and comments on it and there it is for some other newbie who has never seen it before. Rather cool I think.
I agree with U.....
When someone comments on it - it will bring it back to the front or top.
Thank you - I would never have figured that out on my own.
Does it work the same way for Projects cuties submit?
Yes, adding a comment in projects will bring the post to the first page. Commenting on a comment will not move the project to the first page.
