Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

If you look at a questions edit history the edits are labelled 'editted', which is fine but the original question is labelled 'answered', which is wrong.

For an example see http://meta.stackoverflow.com/revisions/1370/list the original question says 'answered 5 hours ago' above the questioners name. It hasn't been answered.

Looks like a bug indeed... should be "asked"

It looks like there's a common page for editing entries of any sort, be they questions or answers. The question page allows you to edit the tags and the title as well as the text. Apparently they forgot to change the "answered" to "asked"
