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

Am I the only one seeing this, or have I completely lost it already?

The timeline shows no sign of Koper.

You're only just under 3k away from seeing all deleted posts. – random Mar 29 '10 at 0:19
Your avatar is irritating, @voy. All this red. Red is the colour of fury. Change it to calming blue. – Ladybug Killer Mar 29 '10 at 7:18

This shows who last had activity in the thread. If someone edits a post or adds a new answer, they will be shown.

In this case, Kop deleted his answer after he posted it. This means that technically he was the last person to have activity in the thread, but you can't see the activity.

10k users can still see deleted posts. But sometimes they'd rather not.

This seems to be the most plausible reason. – perbert Mar 29 '10 at 0:00
This is correct – Kyle Cronin Mar 29 '10 at 0:17

Two things:

  • what displays in that field depends on what tab you are on (it's either owner of post, or owner of last activity on post)
  • as Chacha noted, users who add then delete answers are still the owners of the last activity on the post even if you can't see it

It's not a link, just like when a question has no edits/answers. – perbert Mar 29 '10 at 0:01
