What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

One of my recent responses in Stack Overflow includes a comment that just says "commented on" with no question title, and there is no link to the question, so I can't click on it to see where it's coming from.

This seems like a bug. (is it a deleted question?)

The particular comment is by Idigas and the comment is "@S.Lott - nice one.", but I have no idea which question so I can't link to it for you.

Here's the answer it was posted on (found by going to ldigas' recent activity page): stackoverflow.com/questions/471313/… –  Jon Seigel Aug 17 '10 at 2:17
    
to whoever "-1"'d this question: would you care to comment why? not like I care about rep on meta-SO, but if you feel like throwing stones for a legitimate question, please don't do so anonymously. –  Jason S Aug 17 '10 at 12:51

The main /users/recent query was recently tuned like a Ferrari and it makes an assumption that answers have null titles. Your reported bug exposed a much older time in our code where somehow answer titles could have empty strings (which is no longer the case).

We're fixing the data, which will fix this issue - thanks for finding it!
