Every once in a while I get a notification that someone has voted on one of my old posts.
I click the notification, and I notice that the old post has some ... room for improvement. Some are so bad that if I saw it posted today I'd probably downvote it (fortunately there aren't any I've found which I'd VtD or flag for removal).
I'd like to edit these things into shape, over time. Problem is I personally loathe seeing old posts float to the top of the front page. To me, it feels like "completed business"; it's done, leave it be.
Do others feel the same? Would I be annoying you (yes, you) by creating noise on the front page? Is there a particular time or day when this would be less intrusive?
This would be an ongoing thing, not just once-off, and whatever policy we land on will likely apply to everyone else who wants to edit their old posts, so considered answers are probably called for.
Most of you know me well enough by now that I probably don't need to say this, but no, I am not thinking of editing old posts to get more attention or votes on them. Heck, you may feel free to downvote anything you see rise up just because you feel like it. I won't mind.
