What happened to the answers tab that appeared at the top of the home page? Or is it just me?
Yes, some clown broke it.
Answers are now prominently mixed into all the content on the channel homepages. See https://www.instructables.com/offbeat for an example.
I never noticed those...that said I NEVER paruse by category because I keep up with [recent]
The phrase "prominently mixed" is a bit of an oxymoron. I understand Eric is a fellow tinkerer, but honestly - sometimes if it ain't broke, you really shouldn't fix it.
It's not dead yet. Although it has been buried. Maybe it'd sound more hip to call it "underground"? ;-) Ha!
its in the closet
You can customize your "YOU" tool bar at the top right. By clicking on customize and adding "Questions".
I did that yesterday but it links me to the Answered page. Do you know anyway to link directly to the Recent page?
Click on "REcent" just below the "ASK IT" block.
Sorry, I generally start looking at the most recent and work my way back. I've been busy for a couple of days, so next time I'll start at page 500 and work forward. You don't need to answer every single question you know.
This has been asked 8 billion times (hyperbole included free with your answer!) There has been no official comment from staff. There is a link way low on the main page. I started a forum thread: concensus is we want it back.
I noticed that too!! It's disappeared!
