It used to be the case that accepting an answer would bump the thread to the top (front page). Has this feature been removed? Last time I accepted a question it seems to have had no bumping effect.

Has the feature been removed? Just curious. I thought it was a good feature.

    $\begingroup$ I think that the term is "bump", bouncing make it sound as if MSE is a bouncy castle. More to the point, I don't recall that accepting ever bumped the question to the front page. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila May 1 '13 at 11:40

    $\begingroup$ My impression is the same as Asaf's: I didn't think accepting and unaccepting would bump a question. Only new answers and edits. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong May 1 '13 at 11:53

What can cause my question to be bumped? at meta.SO says that accepting/unaccepting does not bump the questions and I do not recall seeing something like that.

New answers, edits, retags and new bounties bump an answer.

    $\begingroup$ @Matt: Is it because you accompany your acceptance with an edit? :-) $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila May 1 '13 at 14:53
