I just noticed that the /timeline view for questions has changed radically. It looks nicer (see an example), well done!

So far I noticed that the "accepted" action is not logged any more in a question’s timeline. It just appears next to the action of answering, so that it is not possible to trace accepting / unaccepting actions any longer.

Could we have it back?

The accept vote is available on the accepted answer's timeline. The accepted answer is shown on the timeline with a green tick.

There was a broken link there which I've fixed.

  • Nice! Note that the link to "edited" is kind of broken also: it expands to the left giving a very strange format. Dec 23, 2015 at 13:52

    Also, now there is no way to see all the accepting/unaccepting actions. We just see the last one. Dec 23, 2015 at 13:53
  • @fedorqui yes: deleted events (such as deleted votes) are not generally available.

    OK so it used to be available but now it has been decided not to have them. I am fine with that, only that I was used to having that info : ) Dec 23, 2015 at 13:55
  • @fedorqui yeah, we won't be able to detect such things anymore. Well, you get some, you lose some. Dec 23, 2015 at 13:57
  • @ShadowWizard I am kind of getting use to the new format. It looks way better, I think it is specially nice to see now there are two levels: the thread itself and then every post has its different page. However, I miss (maybe it is also a bug) the page for the question itself, where we can see when it got votes. See a more representative example, where you can also see close votes that aged away.

  • @fedorqui of course, I think the design is taken from the existing moderator timeline, but all in all it's a blessed change. Now just need a direct link somewhere, and it's perfect. :) Dec 23, 2015 at 14:12
  • @fedorqui umm... as for close votes aging away, I fear it's part of the "deleted stuff which should be mod only", i.e. will be taken away. (By all means, ordinary users should not be able to see who cast close votes in the past unless they caused the question to get closed) Dec 23, 2015 at 14:14

    “The accept vote is available on the accepted answer's timeline.” — I don’t see it on this very answer’s timeline, though…? Nov 26, 2021 at 11:48
