Typically if a bare URL for a SE question is pasted into a post, it will automatically use the title of said post and hide the URL, e.g.

https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/9134/jon-skeet-facts => Jon Skeet Facts

But after 10 in a list this seems to stop working.

However, they are all converted in the preview.

    Did you just go and find all of the most ridiculous question titles you possibly could for this bug report? I thought those were all going to be jokes... – nhinkle May 8 '11 at 2:13
  • I just spent the last 5 minutes reading those questions, completely out of context because I've no idea about any of those games. THey're exceedingly funny (or disturbing) if you don't know they're about video games. – Mark Henderson May 8 '11 at 3:11

This is by design, except that the limit on meta sites is now 40, not 10 (so editing your question would now show all questions with titles; you'd have to go above 40 achieve the same). See What limitations does converting question links to links with titles have?.

    Why would that possibly be by design? – Mooing Duck Aug 24 '12 at 21:23
