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

I went to edit my question, and got put into a revision editing list somehow, and I see that someone has edited it since I started, but there's no link back that I can find. Would it be possible to add one?

Does the <- button in the upper-left corner of the browser not count? – James McNellis Sep 19 '10 at 21:31
    
    
Or Crtl/Cmd-click that Back button, to have most browsers open the previous page in a new tab or window. – Arjan Sep 19 '10 at 21:40
    
@James: No, because almost every time I want to reopen the question, it's to double-check something in the middle of editing, and therefore I want it in a new tab. The back button does not help. – Aarobot Sep 19 '10 at 23:04
    
Then, @Aarobot, what about that very same Back button while holding down Ctrl or Cmd, like I commented? (Middle-click might do the same trick.) – Arjan Sep 20 '10 at 0:10

Bit of a pita, I agree. Pasting the URL back minus "edit" produces "Page not found". Leverage the tabbed browsing feature that your browser supports. Edit in another tab so you've always got a source tab to get back to the question.

It's a problem in general, the envelope is another example. Jeff & co work on "check what's going on" once a day, maybe a couple of times a day. Not quite compatible with the 9 minutes that a question can survive on the front page. We might not have done a great job explaining how we use the site.
