What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

This post was closed, and subsequently reopened. I wanted to follow the sequence of events, so I looked at the post's timeline, to see if some edit or other action had precipitated the reopening.

I was surprised to see that there are no user names identifying who voted to close and reopen. This seems strange, since that information is easily found from the revision history. In other words, I need to look at two places to build a complete picture of the history of a post.

It would be much nicer if the timeline included all the relevant information.

This lack of usernames is also evident in the comments. Perhaps the two are related? –  ire_and_curses Jan 30 '13 at 21:02

Not that this is a bad idea, but we're not doing any more work on the /posts/{id}/timeline.

We consider it something of a failed experiment, which is why it's not directly linked anywhere for normal users. We might take another whack at the same basic idea later.
