Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The title of a question I posted on StackOverflow was edited.

I looked into the recent activity revisions page and was surprised to find that:

  1. The link title for all activity related to the question now showed the new title

  2. No entry mentioning that title was edited appeared in the log

At a minimum, I would like to see an entry in the log stating "title was changed from 'old title'".

The revision history of that question (click on the "edited two days ago" link) clearly documents that the question title changed from "What do I have to do to get Firefox to display the add-on bar and XUL simultaneously?" to "Adding add-on bar to a custom XULRunner application", two days ago, with the change note "clarfiy the question by replacing XUL -> XUL Application, add the information from a comment by the OP".

Yes it does. How long has the revision diff been available... I've never used it before. I've been relying on the activity tab, which is what my feature request pertains to. – SmileAndNod Dec 9 '11 at 5:44
It's been there as long as I can remember. You didn't make the change, so it doesn't appear on your activity tab. – Michael Petrotta Dec 9 '11 at 5:47
Is there a clickable link, or does the reviewer have to manually enter the url "", the question number (eg "8334415"), and the suffix "/revisions"? – SmileAndNod Dec 9 '11 at 5:54
As I mention in my answer, click on on the "edited two days ago" link. – Michael Petrotta Dec 9 '11 at 5:55
It's 2:30am here.. I apologize. – SmileAndNod Dec 9 '11 at 5:57
