This question was posted today (it is now 08:50 here in the UK) whether 'today' is set to my local timezone or Stack Exchange's locale, I really don't know.
It already has over 800 views and a substantial amount of question upvotes and answer upvotes. The question itself isn't really amazing, is quite basic (in my view). It is too early for it to have been sent out in a Webmasters SE newsletter. As this SE site has declined in activity over the years, you rarely see a new question attract this amount of popularity in such a short space of time these days.
I was just wondering if anyone could shed any light as to how this has happened (and occasionally on other new questions too, although very rare). There are some new questions with barely 20 views in the last week.
It would be great to see this kind of traction on many new questions reinstating some of the huge activity this network witnessed a few years back.
Appreciate any thoughts...
