To the cafemom administration: Are you trying to phase out answers?

I'm just curious because even with the new format the link is still off the beaten path. If you didn't know it was there you would probably never come across it.  Its the only reason I come to this site.

  • I hope not but I think it's easier to see answers now then it was before.

  • They will lose a bunch of people if they do that! I totally agree that it seems that way. They need to leave well enough alone!

  • I must be on some different format. My Other Stuff on the top right takes me right to Answers.

  • I'm new here. I hope they aren't planning on phasing it out. I've heard lots of interesting things about Answers and I've been lurking for several weeks.

  • They've always insisted they're not, even though traffic has dropped dramatically since the beta change. I do think their adding answers to the drop down is an admission of their mistake, though, because that makes it much easier to find. Thought bubbles, otoh, seem like they'll be going the way of the journals now.

    Nobody ever bothered to use them before beta. After they put them on the home page, THEN people started changing them regularly - it used to be they'd go months unchanged. Now they're something you have to look for again, like they used to be, and people don't seem to remember like they were after beta.

  • CM Admin is in loves with The Stir and groups (notice how those are strategically placed on the puke blue toolbar).
