I'd like to report following bug (at least I think so).

I'm looking at questions related to sql-server tag on Stack Overflow. One of them was answered by me, however it displays me as last editor. Is it expected behaviour? Please see screenshots:

Me, listed as editor

And once you open question:

Just an answer

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


"Modified" has a more general meaning than "edited." Think of a modification as any notable change to a question page's state. That means:

  • Answering the question
  • Editing the question or any of its answers
  • Reopening the question
  • other things I might have forgotten

In this case, you answering the question changed the state of the page, showing it as modified by you.

  • Thank you for explanation. I just thought it was confusing at first, but now it makes sense. – Evaldas Buinauskas Jul 26 '15 at 7:40
  • @Evaldas No problem! Glad to help. – Aza Jul 26 '15 at 7:41
  • NOTE: Answering the question will put "answered by ... " in the summary. So you can take that off the list – ChrisF Jul 26 '15 at 12:17
