Are you glad they brought back Question of the Day?

I AM!  It is like admin is starting to take notice of us again.  Yep, we are here and we like being here.  

We don't want to be corraled into groups.  We don't want to read The Stir.  We just want to hang out with our friends (the regulars, irregulars, sometimes visitors, anons and newbies).

  • I'm glad we're getting attention again and that they seem to be making an effort after so many of us were afraid they were trying to let Answers die out, but honestly I'm not as interested in The Question of the Day as I am with other aspects of Answers.

  • Never noticed that we had it before and I have been in and out since 2008

    It started when they added points and we had very active CM admins here for a while. Then they started doing the site redesign where they pit Answers vs Groups, reassigned all our admins to other departments, took away the Answers tab and started acting like we were going the way of Polls and Journals. People complained because the last QotD before this was up there for 6 weeks untouched - nobody was working here to change it anymore. Instead of giving us back an admin, they just deleted the whole thing.

    So with that in mind, IF it keeps being regularly updated, it's a good thing. If they're going to drop it for another new shiny toy in 3 months, I'd rather they not bother.

  • I didn't notice until you posted this question and the skeptic in me is wondering why the powers that be are taking a sudden interest in Answers.

  • what qualifies as question of the day

    Whatever one they decide to use - never from debates, always from the categories. Don't think they ever used JFF, either. Course, they used to get a mention on the main page, too. The "QotD" on the main page today links to some thread in groups, it's not this one.

  • I don't remember ever running across it till today. Maybe that was before my time.

    Answer by Ballad at 4:50 PM on Jun. 10, 2013

  • I really don't care either way

    Answer by butterflyblue19 at 4:50 PM on Jun. 10, 2013

  • As long as they bother to keep it updated then I don't have a problem with it.
