Can "last activity" provide more context on what it was that happened?
Currently (November 2020), the list of questions displays a "last activity" under each one of them. It refers, obviously, to when and who made the last action in the Q&A thread and links to the user that did that.
However, there are cases where the activity is not obvious or, to put it simply, it would be nicer to know exactly what changed immediately, without the need to browse all the Q&A pairs and see if somebody answered, an edit was performed in a post, etc.
What about providing some indicator on what was that last activity and a link to it?
So for example, instead of:
last activity about 6 hours ago by Monica Cellio
Let's say things like:
X edited [the question] about 6 hours ago
X posted [an answer] about 6 hours ago
The question was reopened about 6 hours ago
Where [something] is a link to the post itself.
