On Community♦'s page if says and I quote :

{Randomly poke old unanswered questions every hour so they get some attention}

What algorithm is used for this random throws of questions ? Does it bring up useful questions only ? How ?

    $\begingroup$ I think there is some minimum score below which questions are not poked. Aside from that I believe it is random. It is certainly the case that it dredges up some real stinkers from time to time. $\endgroup$ Jan 16, 2014 at 20:22

    $\begingroup$ I hate to interrupt the random discussion. Here's a related one. Wait, am I in the right place? We're in the meta, right? :D $\endgroup$ Jan 17, 2014 at 5:49
