My first puzzle here was literally small. Here's a puzzle that is nonliterally small

Silver, without any left, flipped it at charged particle modification (8)

Within Buddhist or Yiddish lore (7)

After solving these two cryptic clues, their answers will make a two word phrase describing what you should now see

As noted by Sid,

Solving the cryptic clues yield REVISION HISTORY, and the revision history contains the following:
"Silver, without any left, flipped it at charged particle modification (12)
Within Buddhist or Yiddish lore (5)
After solving these two cryptic clues, their answers will make a two word phrase describing what you just saw. "

Note that...

The same clues are there, with different enumerations. The answers are probably:
REVISITATION: SI(-L)VER flipped+IT+AT+ION , def: modification(?)
STORY: Hidden in Buddhist or Yiddish, def: lore

So the final(?) answer is

Revisitation story.

  • $\begingroup$ Revisitation meaning modification is too much of a stretch to me. Of course, you could be right. But, it just feels odd. $\endgroup$ – Sid Jan 30 '17 at 15:45
  • $\begingroup$ It is correct, but I see where you're coming from Sid. I tried to get something partially between "revision", "revisitation", and the element-y theme of the clue but I didn't find anything that fit real well $\endgroup$ – stacksfiller Jan 30 '17 at 17:04

REVISION. Silver without "l"(@Ankoganit points out that, L is an abbreviation of Left), Reversed, charades with ION. Modification-Def. (@TechIdiot found it, but I had figured it out independently as well)

Within Buddhist or Yiddish lore (7)

HISTORY- Charade. I am not sure, lore=history but it sounds okay. @Yandrakus points out that Within clues Charade.

SO, now,

We have to see the revision history, where we see strange things in the original post.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, lore relates to myths/stories/tales. $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Jan 30 '17 at 15:07

    $\begingroup$ Maybe the clue is WITHIN: Buddhist or Yiddish --> Budd - HIST - OR - Y - iddish HISTORY is within the two words $\endgroup$ – Yandrakus Jan 30 '17 at 15:13

    $\begingroup$ L is an abbreviation for left (without any left). $\endgroup$ – Ankoganit Jan 30 '17 at 15:22
  • $\begingroup$ @Ankoganit Ah, Yes. That makes more sense. $\endgroup$ – Sid Jan 30 '17 at 15:41

Silver, without any left, flipped it at charged particle modification (8)

Silver, without any left -> SILVER -> REVIS(flipped) + at Charged Particle -> ION -> REVISION(def. Modification)

Within Buddhist or Yiddish lore (7)

HISTORY. Already solved by @Sid
