What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I just saw this in my notifications:

but it looks fine on the actual question revision history page:

screenshot of revision history displaying "Rollback to Revision 6"

Is this a real bug, or just a side effect of the changes to the recent page?

This isn't the first time this has come up. Displaying GUIDs has always been the case on the Recent Edits page for the 10k tools. I've never really paid attention to look for it in the envelope, but I'm under the impression that it's more likely that it has always been like this for there as well. – Grace Note Mar 14 '11 at 14:25
Huh. How 'bout that? – Pops Mar 14 '11 at 14:51
This bug is so going to be marked status-completed through the removal of the recent page. :P – badp Mar 14 '11 at 14:52
@badp'ssockpuppet But I'm still upvoting this. For great justice. – Yi Jiang Mar 14 '11 at 14:54

  1. It has always been this way.

  2. We're deprecating the /recent pages, so no further work of any kind will be done on them.

1. I must not favorite many questions that get edits rolled back; 2. even if a /recent page starts leaking radioactive waste onto kittens, puppies and baby unicorns!?!?!?!?!? – Pops Mar 14 '11 at 18:26
2. So you're really going to take it away from us? I'm hoping for a proper substitute that shows the recent changes since my last visit! – Hendrik Vogt Mar 14 '11 at 18:28
