Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Jeff pointed this out in this question.

Currently, in most situations (a question's "micro view") a question listing has four fold navigation functionality:

alt text

However, if you click on Questions in the upper left, you get taken to a page with a slightly different formatting (the "mini view") and limited navigation functionality:

alt text

It'd be more consistent and more useful to have the TIME ago, last changed item, navigation functionality for both the "micro" and "mini" views.

Also, it'd be nice to have the votes and views be consistently clickable or not (I don't think it matters which way) between the "micro" and "mini" views..

Freehand circles: check. Freehand writing: check. Upvote! – Rebecca Chernoff Sep 9 '10 at 2:58

Not quite possible; look closely at the dates for each tab.

They change.

On some tabs, it's showing "when was this question created/asked" -- on others it is indeed showing the last change.

(in particular on the view/tab you've provided, it would be wrong, though it would be correct on some others)

The timestamp, if it becomes a link, should link to the post. Because that is what the time stamp represents, the time the question was asked. – jjnguy Sep 9 '10 at 3:15
p.s. [Enter] to submit a comment rocks, thanks – jjnguy Sep 9 '10 at 3:16
Interesting differences. I've never really used the "mini" views, since I've always clicked on the "Stack Overflow" logo (for the "micro" views) instead of the "Questions" box (for the "mini" views). – Peter Ajtai Sep 9 '10 at 4:12
