Way to know when a question was auto bumped even after it was changed
This isn't a request for a specific feature. It is a step before that. It is highlighting a use-case that I frequently encounter that isn't handled well by the site, to bring it to the attention of the SE staff who look after the UX.
Sometimes I noticed that some old question has had some activity. I'll frequently check it out (sometimes for interest, mostly to patrol for crap - "regression to the mean" suggests that activity on old questions with highly-quality accepted answers is uncommonly an improvement.)
At this point, I have a tricky task. I want to find what has recently changed: has the question been edited? a new answer? one of the existing answers? has something been deleted?
That can be clumsy and slow - especially for questions with lots of long answers.
It would be nice to have a mechanism to find the most recent changes made.
I can't search for today's date, because it might say "3 hours ago" instead (and time-zones make it tricky)
Complication: As mod, I think I see all changes. Regular users might not be able to see that the recent change was the deletion of an answer, making the recent activity even more mysterious.
