So you start at the Data Explorer start page, and then you click on the Stack Overflow site.

And then a couple of days later, when you start typing the URL in your browser, you remove the last parts of the URL and you try to visit http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/ . But then you get "Page Not Found". (This has happened to me more than once)

It does not make any sense that http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/ leads to "Page Not Found".

Suggestion:

When visiting http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/ , redirect to http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/queries

This makes a lot of sense, so now it's done pending a pull and redeploy of Data Explorer.

I also added a redirect for the domain prefixes of each site, since some of the paths are kind of obnoxious to type. As an example, Database Administrators will now be accessible via /dba and /dba/queries by way of a redirect to the current URL.

I think in the future switching to use the domain-based URL probably makes the most sense, but I didn't want to risk breaking something with that change right now.
