    E.S.L. or lost in translation perhaps?

    Off to a great morning - go live today!

    Other than the fact that the new "feature" notifications are not working again this morning, here is one to add the Department of Redundant Notifications Department. Can believe I missed this one for so long!

      Did you post an idea for a better name for the link in Idea place? :)

      I'm somewhat disappointed!

      Of course, I had expected a clever link cycle here - but nah, I'm brought to the Questions & Answers FAQ page (or is it called "Q&A Q&A page"?)...

      Sooo, have you tried Questions & Answers page? :-]

      The text kind of irks me every time "can't find what you're looking for?". No, sorry, it's not me, it's you who can't find it. Somehow never hear this from Google...

      I agree the language is confusing, and the intent is not to defend a poor search experience (or assume that someone isn't smart enough to use basic search functionality).

      The Questions and Answers page in this case refers to (which is not the same as the Q&A page...and, yeah, that's confusing). And the link sends people to that page to give them some additional tips for finding information in the community (primarily explaining how to ask a question properly if you can't find an answer via search).

      Of course, the Questions and Answers page ( has its own issues, and as I brought up in another discussion, it's being revamped.

      But, back to the original point...lemme see about getting some of that phrasing rephrased.
