Did DC lose a convenient way of reloading the homepage?

DC Feedback

I'm pretty sure that we used to be able to click on the logo at the top of the homepage in order to reload it:

 

But this no longer has a hyperlink, so I have to use my browser's reload facilities.

Was this change deliberate?

Hi, John!

Yes, it is done on purpose. We are working on better SEO for DC and this is part of the work. It is called by google as circular link - the link on the page which directs on itself. Google "doesn't like it". 

I got used to clicking on it too. So it is still clickable on other than home page, but doesn't work on home page.

Reload can work? Ctrl+R on Chrome?

Yes, Control+R works, and so does clicking on the browser's reload button.

But it seems I still have a couple of options for clicking on the DC homepage:

At least, until you remove those frown

I'll figure out with developers why we keep this link.

Looks like those two have now been removed as well sad. Perhaps I should have stayed quiet!

Thank you, John! You helped a lot! ) DC would work better (from Google point of view :).

We have browser notifications on the new postings. Would it solve the issue for you?

Interesting. I wonder if you're still using an older copy of DC somehow. The screenshot I posted was from Chrome version 60.0.3112.90 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows.

Does it still work if you clear your browser cache?
