I'm a teacher and this just caused a big problem in one of my courses. One of my assignments was to do research on a topic and hand in the public link. One section's due date was a week ago. They completed it fine. The other section's due date was today, and all the students started complaining that they couldn't find any way to generate a public link. I was getting really annoyed at them and giving them failing marks. When even the smartest students had the same problem, I checked it out for myself and realised that the button to create a public link was gone. My old shared notebooks still worked. And you can still share notes individually (which is what my enterprising students resorted to). Now I know why. I would just like Evernote to know that these decisions really do have an impact on people's lives. There should be an announcement, or at least a note in the interface letting users know what has happened. Worse, this kind of behaviour now makes me wonder if I made a mistake teaching Evernote to my students. A company you entrust so much of your life and work to has to be run like a very tight ship.
