As of January 16, 2020, all questions and answers have a “timeline button” underneath the voting buttons. Clicking on the clock icon directly leads to the timeline for that question or answer: For more information, see the announcement Add a link to the timeline of a post on Meta Stack Exchange.


Let me take a crack at answering this, being the moderator in question. There are essentially two reasons: The question is subpar. The fact that it was later closed, reopened, and attracted more closing votes now show that I am not the only person who felt this way. I don't think it's necessarily a bad question, that's irrelevant. But I don't think this is ...


Moderators frequently remove questions from the HNQ. Our site is large and provides many interesting questions. The number of questions per site is limited. Removals increase the turnover of math-questions in the HNQ and thus allow more math-questions to get known network-wide.

Rather easy way to get there is to go to revisions first - by clicking the timestamp of the last edit - and then change the word revisions to timeline in the url. (Although it only works for edited posts.) ...


The last activity was a Community♦ bump at 05:48:10, which was not displayed in the timeline. Protecting a question does not count for the time displayed at the active timer.


As an alternative, if you're alright with installing userscripts on your browser, you can try one of Samuel Liew's useful userscripts: Post Headers & Question TOC. It provides (among other things) a table of contents of answers in the right sidebar. Clicking on the entry of an answer scrolls the page to the beginning of that answer. I expect this would ...
