This question might be a super dumb -- or if it isn't, I have to imagine I'm not the first person to raise it. But I can't find anything about via searching (perhaps because it's tough to come up with an effective string). So.
I tried to read Meta regularly. Recent Meta activity has had me bouncing back and forth between Meta and mainsite with extra frequency. In the several years I've been on RPG.SE, however, I haven't found any simple, click-and-you're-there way to navigate from the mainsite homepage ("Top Questions") to the Meta homepage in the desktop browser UI. The only way I've found to do it is:
- On mainsite, click the section/link for my user profile:
- Click the "Profiles" button in the upper-right to get to a drop-down menu, and click "Meta user":
- Now that I'm on Meta user profile page, I can click the "Questions" link at the left:
Is it just me, or does this seem like a weird set of steps for what ought to be a very direct path between the two most important pieces of mainsite and Meta? Why must I go through my profile page to get to Meta questions? Or maybe there's some obvious one-click link somewhere that my eyeballs are simply refusing to see?
(Yeah, I know, we're talking about four clicks as opposed to one. And yeah, I know, I can just bookmark the Meta questions page; indeed I have done. I'm trying to understand the intent behind this architecture.)
