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

In this answer, I posted a comment (the 4th one in the comments list).

I then made an edit, but I wanted to make sure that people see that there is an edit, so I wrote at the end of my comment [edit] and the rest of the message.

When I submitted the changes to my comment, I noticed that my [edit] just got converted to a link to the question edition page.

Is that a bug or feature ?

this is a test, edit link: edit – Doorknob Feb 1 '13 at 13:13
That is mentioned in the FAQ – hims056 Feb 1 '13 at 13:19
You don't need to alert people you made an edit to a comment. The little pencil icon after the time of posting does that for you. – Al E. Feb 1 '13 at 13:46
@AlEverett I know that, but in this case I wanted to indicate the first text and the edited part. – j0k Feb 1 '13 at 13:48
-1 lack of freehand circles :P – Doorknob Feb 1 '13 at 13:49
@j0k And you don't need to do that. They can look at the revision history if they want to know. – Servy Feb 1 '13 at 15:22
@Servy Where can I find the link to see the comment revision history? – j0k Feb 1 '13 at 15:23
@j0k Oh, I thought you were referring to an edit in the post, nvm then. – Servy Feb 1 '13 at 15:25

It's a feature: Add data.SE style "magic links" to comments.
