Similar to this question, I've noticed that I'm unable to access the timeline for this question. While I'm not a 10k user, I am able to see this question due to the fact that I've made an answer.

I believe the permission should look to see if the user can see the current deleted post, instead of just checking if the user is a 10k+ user. Additionally, revisions should work the same way, especially if I'm presented with a clickable link to a post I have access to be able to see. Right now, I simply see the 404 Page not Found for this link.

Alternatively, as @iDebug suggested:

So hiding the link is a better solution. There are a lot of 404 links available every day.

If the revisions are intended not to be able to be viewed, a better error page should be provided, indicating the user does not need to view revisions, or better yet, the link should be removed all-together.

  • So, I think your question is really - "Make it possible for under 10K users to see the timeline view of deleted posts they can view"? Can you see the timeline for your answer there? – Catija Jan 23 '18 at 16:49
  • @Catija I am able to see the timeline for my answer, and the revisions for my answer, but not the timeline or revisions for the question. Also, yes, that question does clarify my position a bit. – FrankerZ Jan 23 '18 at 16:53
  • Ah, so then maybe "Make it possible for under 10K users to see the timeline view of deleted questions they have answers on"? :D – Catija Jan 23 '18 at 16:55
  • That'd not be very good. You're allowed to see the question itself because you have an answer, but the revisions and the timeline won't be too relevant to your answer. – iBug Jan 23 '18 at 17:27
  • @iDebug So having a 404 link on a page I can view is a better solution? – FrankerZ Jan 23 '18 at 17:30

  • @iDebug I've updated my post – FrankerZ Jan 23 '18 at 17:41
