Show Diffs for Edits to Watched Top Posts

I often find myself watching frequently updated, wiki, or policy topics in order to get notifications when someone edits the top post. That workflow turns into:

  • See the notification.
  • Click to the topic.
  • Click the last edited icon for diff.
  • Scroll around until I hopefully spot the change.

This gets laborious with long top posts. I often have to scroll quite a ways to find the edits. I often overlook multiple edits to a post, especially when they appear far apart.

It would be nice to see diffs displayed in my notifications list, perhaps behind an expandable <details>. Or perhaps edits to wiki posts could be shown as replies to the topic, showing the edit, after a period of time.
