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

This question already has an answer here:

At the moment, if I want to look at the activity of a thread I've already read (new Answers, new Comments, new Answer/Question edits), I have to go through a tedious process. Luckily, we got a lastactivity button, but that only shows the latest activity:

enter image description here

By sequential activity, I mean a list of links sorted by latest activity first.

The reason I want this feature is because I often want to know what activity I missed. In my case, this is on threads I've Starred, in which I don't wanna miss a thing. It's easy to miss stuff when relying on lastactivity, especially on busy and/or large threads.

UPDATE: Good to know such a feature exists, but it would nice if it was easily accessible. An example would be the following, where history links to that activity:

active: 8 months ago (history)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

/posts/<postid>/timeline give you what you want? – ben is uǝq backwards Oct 9 '13 at 17:38
You already can sort the answers by last activity instead the default sort by votes. – Shadow Wizard Oct 9 '13 at 17:39
Sort the page by activity then.. – Martijn Pieters Oct 9 '13 at 17:40
@MartijnPieters that doesn't do Comments – Tshepang Oct 9 '13 at 17:42

What we really need is a button that will call up the timeline view instead of having to manually type in the url for it. A good explanation of what is shown there would also be nice.

@ShaWizDowArd, thanks, I've bountied that. – Lance Roberts Oct 9 '13 at 19:36
Lost cause if you ask me, I tried back in April and other user in May both to no avail. Shog likely stick to his opinion and won't budge. :/ – Shadow Wizard Oct 9 '13 at 19:38
I agree, but I'm used to chasing lost causes. – Lance Roberts Oct 9 '13 at 20:08
Fair enough. Did it ever work out? – Shadow Wizard Oct 9 '13 at 20:12
Well we got them to eventually compromise on seeing your own deleted questions. – Lance Roberts Oct 9 '13 at 20:54
