I often go to a user page to look up some information from the Activity tab, only to realize that I'm looking at Meta when I want to be on Main or vice-versa.

Fortunately, there's a link on the upper-right that I can use to quickly switch between those pages. The problem is that it directs me back to the "Profile" tab every time.

So my workflow becomes:

  1. Click username
  2. Click "Activity"
  3. Oops, wrong site! Click "Meta User" (or "Main User")
  4. Oops, wrong tab! Click "Activity" again

Four clicks, when it could be only three? For the love of God, Montresor!

Of course, I could save myself the trouble my performing step 3 before step 2, but I don't always realize it's necessary until after step 2.

When I load the page with ?tab=topactivity, please add that context to the links that switch between Meta and Main user pages.

  • I agree - this is how it should've worked from the start
