On community wiki posts both the revision history link & community wiki links lead to the same page.

Shouldn't the username in the community wiki post point to the user profile page?

Revision link hard to see screenshot of revision link hover http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/5537/62141873.png

Community wiki link even harder to see screenshot of explained linkage http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/4535/27703557.png

  • Candidly, if I'd found this post, it's similar enough to what's here that I probably would have edited this, rather than posting a new one. In any case, I'm marking this complete.

This was always the way. It wasn't until recently that the last editor link was removed.

Community wiki posts are less about individual users and more about the collective work of all.

On non-CW posts, the last edited time links to the revision list. On the area noting the author (bottom right), it would link to the author.

Since a CW post is a group effort (ideals, man, they're glossy), it displays the author who contributed most overall (on a rough percentage) to the latest version of the post. It also links to the revision list to show you all of the authors/contributors to that post.

Again, on CW, it's about the Borg and not about the red shirt.

  • i got your point random, since the username under the communitywiki shows the owner of the post and the edited or answered link already point to the revision history , we can link the username to his profile page.
