For a long while, I've been wanting to find answers in the tags I'm interested in, because I like spending my votes.

I've given up hoping for a chatroom-friendly answers RSS feed, so I ended up spending my votes on whatever I see that's interesting and good for the site.

Recently I was looking at a specific tag's top users page, and almost by accident, discovered a page showing the last 50 answers posted in that tag.

So the click path is basically this:

  1. Pick a tag
  2. Get to the Top Users page
  3. Get to the New tab

Why is this page so well hidden? Questions are obviously and understandably first-class citizens on all SE sites.. but a Q&A site is also about answers... and as a voter these can be hard to hunt - unless you know where to look.

Or is it just me? Could it be made a little bit more discoverable?

note: not too sure about the tags I'm using here - feel free to edit

    The same list of answers could be obtained by searching for [tag] is:answer and sorting by newest (then you can bookmark the search page). The advantage is that you can do it for more than one tag at a time. – user259867 Sep 13 '14 at 1:13

    A lot of pages could simply be eliminated, and all these navigation links could be greatly simplified, if super-ninja-search™ was the way to browse SE sites... – Mathieu Guindon Sep 13 '14 at 1:26
  • I agree - I think I expressed a similar sentiment at meta.stackexchange.com/q/235102/215590 – PolyGeo Sep 13 '14 at 11:14
