ANSWERS gone again. Again.

I see you've changed the page layout again... and lost the Answers tab in the process of doing so.

(Apparently deliberate. Given that there was no competition for screen real-estate, this may or may not indicate an opinion about the perceived value -- and/or legal risk? -- of the Answers section, at least in its present form.)

There is now a Q&A tab.

I need to decide whether I want to bother getting involved again.
From what we've noticed on our end, a vast majority of people find the answers page from one of two places. The first is by using the Submit button at the top of the page, and clicking Ask a Question. The second is from the individual category pages and clicking the answers tab. We have found that it's very rare to get any traffic to the answers area from the home page.

With this in mind, we opted to take the link off the home page, and leave it in the Submit, and Categories pages and see how things go and see if that changes the traffic at all.

Sorry it didn't get mentioned in the announcement, I think it was just overlooked.
Hmm. Traffic to answers has fallen. Tab has been removed. Someone's tools ain't working right, if you initial analysis says the main page tab wasn't bringing traffic.
Logic!
Logic fail.

Since the home-page link drove the least traffic to the Answers section, the drop in traffic is due to the loss of the page-top tab.

I said.

You said.

the drop in traffic is due to the loss of the page-top tab.

Where's the logic flaw ?

Because you assumed the traffic came from the main page tab.

(Or did that mean the page-top tab?)
The page top tab of course.
Clicking SUBMIT gives me nothing to do with asking questions??
It's there, but it's different than on every other page and not very noticeable. Look down at the left sidebar under "Other ways to share."
