The user's activity summary tab shows multiple answers to the same question (which is permissible in certain circumstances) in a manner which makes it difficult to tell which one is which since they are labeled solely by the text of the question:

Answers and Reputation

This ambiguity carries over to the Reputation section.

If the first few words from your answer appeared after the question text we would be able to differentiate one from another:

Answers and Reputation_Differentiation

  • That's way more detail than necessary on this page. I know from the profile that their best/newest/most recently active posts are {these questions} and {answers to these other questions}. If I care that much about the actual content, I can click the link that is already present, without trying to either read a tiny font or having to scroll the page again to see the next three records in the list.

  • I don't want to make a long list of specific examples, you can see one above; others are on Puzzling.SE, or even Physics.SE. No one is suggesting a tiny font or scrolling. If you don't like the idea that's OK. Maybe we can overcomplicate it by adding opt-in and bigger fonts - to make it easier to read.

Multiple answers to a question from the same users isn't that common. Meta oddness aside, there's literally one site where there's a legitimate need to post multiple answers to a question.

I suspect this would add clutter.

    PPCG, Maths, MO, Worldbuilding, Puzzling, TWP, and I'm sure there are more. All have a swath of questions where a single user could post multiple answers legitimately.
