It's noon-ish, 9th of April (here) and I've started to have difficulty navigating about within Socratic. Is anyone else having trouble? The control linkage seems to have changed.

The navigation strip that used to say "latest activity" and "open questions" now says "activity" and "questions# (clicking on "questions" does not give just open questions.
When I get into a subject (e.g. Socratic Meta) there is no navigation back to my home (that I've found).

We are currently in the process of making a few changes to Socratic's subject dashboards (as you've noticed, Jim & Alan).

At this exact moment, the change has not been deployed yet (although we deployed it temporarily yesterday and then reverted it).

However, we will soon deploy a change to the navigation on subject pages that will look like this:

The major differences are:

  1. The first tab has been renamed from "Latest" to "Activity"
  2. The second tab has been renamed from "Open Questions" to "Questions"
  3. The right side navigation panel has a new filter that allows you to see only unanswered questions, answers that need help, or both

The purpose of changes 1 and 2 are to make the navigation the same as it appears on the dashboard. This change will make the site more consistent and less confusing for new folks.

The purpose of change 3 is to give you all more control over the types of questions you see within a subject feed. Hopefully, this will make it easier for you to find the types of questions you want to answer or edit.

We'd love to hear any feedback you have on this update!
