Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

Do we need the drop down menu at the upper right corner to link to all other communities?

Isn't the arrow a the upper right corner linking all other communities as a drop down menu superfluous, when we can just scroll down where all the other communities are listed?

At least, please add an option to let us hide the arrow?

We added that drop-down menu in response to requests from community members. Yes there's a link in the footer (and that has been brought up before), but many feel that we need something a little more prominent. A widget in the header also helps with discovery; people who visit a Codidact community but aren't all that invested yet might not scroll all the way to the bottom of the main question list, but they might click that widget. (Yeah, I'm speaking speculatively because I don't have analytics data to back this up, only anecdotal observations.)

The widget is helpful and doesn't use a lot of space (even on a phone). We'd need a stronger argument to consider changing its placement.

Yes, I do find it helpful although at the bottom you also have the same information. Since in some communities I am suspended or banned at least then I can go to others, like I have done now.
