Bug Description

There is some inconsistent naming with the "Questions" area of a Launchpad project. The URL suggests it's called "answers". If I go to https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad, the page title is "Questions for Launchpad itself". The breadcrumbs suggest this section is called "Questions". Yet to get there, the link at the top of the page is called "Answers".

It should be called either "Questions" or "Answers" consistently. I would suggest Questions, since not all questions have answers. It is a place to ask questions. (Just like Bugs is a place to report bugs, it isn't called "Bug fixes", it's called "Bugs".)

This was a deliberate slightly fun naming thing we did, but it does lead to the inconsistency that you note.

Changed in launchpad:
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Low

This is definitely confusing and I think renaming "Answers" to "Questions" is a very good idea.
