# "Past Solutions" tab

The new layout has made the past problems and solutions disappear. Will they ever reappear or are they gone forever? They were always a great resource for me to learn new things but seeing that they are no more, I am negative towards the new layout.

The past problems haven't disappeared. They are under the started tab on your homepage.

The solution issue is indeed a great one. Below are two links of the same problem.

I found the first link by clicking the #mechanics tag. I searched for the second one in my browser history. Note that the first one has no user submitted solution while the second one does. But new users are going to solve the first one [as it's under the mechanics tag]. So whatever solution was written before is completely useless [I do hope I'm wrong here though] in this new layout.

I'm re-sharing this and I hope the staff notices this.

Yes, that is true. When we share an old problem, it interprets it as a new problem, and all the solutions submitted are vanished. All previous records of that problem are removed, and thus the problem is treated as a fresh problem, and the hence coming solutions are entertained. I don't think that this was intended by the staff, maybe a glitch kind of thing.

True, I dislike the new layout too. I don't yet know if the Live Problem Set has vanished forever, or is hidden somewhere and I cannot find it!
