There is an experimental timeline view for questions
now available on meta ONLY! (Now working on SO, SF, and SU as well)
This is partially motivated by comments about how difficult it is to follow very active questions which have a lot of activity, and also the feedback on the API which was heavily dominated by "we need to know what happened in this time range" type responses.
It can only be accessed through URL hackery at the moment. To get to it, enter question URLs like so:
This is a chronological timeline of everything that happened on a question, including
- initial question ask
- closure, deletion, reopen, undelete, etc
all based on when they happened in chronological order.
We are thinking about making this a fourth tab on the question, like so:
Timeline | Oldest | Newest | Votes
Please try it out and provide feedback. It is still a little rough, so we are not looking for highly detailed bug reports, just more general feedback.
