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

This question popped up recently in Stack Overflow, asking how to check what edits were made to the post.

User Nishant raised a good point in the comments. Clicking on the 99 mins ago link is hardly intuitive for new users.

Might I suggest that that link be augmented with the text (view revisions) or something equally obvious?

Possibilities are to just add (view revisions) to the end of the link text or to take the time-ago out of the link altogether (leave it as text) and just place View revisions under the time.

+1. And while this is obviously not a solution your new users, there is a nice greasemonkey script to add revisions and timeline links – Tobias Kienzler Mar 22 '11 at 11:45
Something that could make it more intuitive would be to add a small icon next to the date of the modification, something like a magnifying glass. – Dzyann Dec 28 '12 at 19:32
