Community sections not displaying accurate info Answered

I noticed that several community sections and topic lists are not displaying correct data. I don't want to sound like I'm nit-picking (because I really do like this site), so I hope staff takes this as an effort to improve things and not just as criticism. :)

The following sections display incorrect data: (https://www.instructables.com/community)

Community > Forums > Newsletter Archive (shows last post= 1 year ago, but last post was yesterday).

Community > Help > Contests (shows 0)

Community > Marketplace > Jobs & Internships (shows last post= 6 months ago, but last post was 4 days ago)

The following sections do not display topics in the correct order based on most recent;

Community > Marketplace > For Sale, Free Stuff, Jobs & Internships, Services and Wanted (only "Kits" is displaying correctly).

Community > Help > Bugs and FAQ's

Finally, if I may make a suggestion... I have noticed that when a new topic is posted, it does not show up as the "last post" as indicated on the root "community" page. Instead the "last post" is always based on comments. Too often, I think members are missing new topics because they are unaware that they exist if they are basing the activity of a section on the "last post". I think its worth considering that a change be made to reflect the "last post" by activity instead of by comment alone.

Thank you for your efforts to make this community a great place to be. As I said, I hope my comments are taken as constructive and not just as criticism.
