After months of playing "spot the difference" I finally googled for an answer.
Still took looking at the page source code to figure it out. :-)

Have been looking for something similar to this:
Turns out almost everything in AskBot is clickable. Clicking the "asked", "updated", "answered" timstamps takes you to the revision history.

Should really put your "reveal" as the answer.

Link to example question.
Text in link after the question number seems to be ignored so not affected by title changes?

Strange that the Bugzilla history doesn't show that I made a comment on Bug 3791, which I made in 2010. Oh, it doesn't actually show the entire history, does it, but only changes to the bug metadata.

Maybe the revision history doesn't show tag updates?
I feel kinda like DenverCoder9 - so close. :-)

I can't find a way to show title edits either.

I think our version of Askbot is old and unsupported. I liked OSQA better, although I understand the reasons for the switch, especially the fact that "OSQA is unmaintained".
