WHY did the direct link to Answers go away, and how do we get that decision reversed? Answered

Folks have been marking the "didn't there used to be"  version of this question as Answered when someone says "yes" -- which is accurate but not very useful.

Yeah, I know, I can probably set up my own bookmark for /answers... but I submit that I shouldn't have to. Unless the goal is to kill off the Answers system entirely...

Turns out there's a workaround, of sorts -- "Answers" is now one of the things you can select as a Shortcut. Doesn't automatically come up in Most Recent mode, alas, but it helps a bit.

 well the answer to that is this people at HQ looked at the data from when they installed that shortcut to the present which was a couple months back and they saw that the shortcut was being used like 15% (these numbers are not accurate) so they decided that it was not worth keeping up on the navabar so they post a forum (at least i think it was a forum) and ask if people had any objections to the master decision well the response was pitifull there was less than a dozen who wanted to keep the shortcut but when you customize your page you can install your own shortcuts and one of them is answers.

I hope this answers your question
