The link on the author's username in this post incorrectly points to the revision history of the post instead of the author's user page. Ditto for other answers in this thread with no revision history.

11$\begingroup$ @Martin Perhaps I should elaborate; for CW posts which do have revs, there is a line above the username that links to the revs, and a second line with a username that does link to the user's page. But when there are no revs, the revs line is missing, and the username instead links to the revs. Presumably that inconsistency is a bug, unless there is some rational design decision behind that which escapes me. $\endgroup$– Bill DubuqueMay 21, 2014 at 19:48

$\begingroup$ And also a recent bug report on MathOverflow Meta: Clicking question author username sends to revision history. $\endgroup$– Martin SleziakJun 17, 2020 at 5:49
