Why is there no About link in the top bar of Stack Overflow?

There is one on meta:
metaaaa

None on Stack:
staaaaak

What is the reason for this?

I don't have an about link on the top of my page, it's just main | faq... Maybe it doesn't show for users past a certain reputation? –  Brandon Dec 6 '11 at 22:56

It's because you have more than 5,000 rep on Stack Overflow. Related - meta.stackexchange.com/questions/72043/… (though the information presented there is incomplete) –  ChrisF Dec 6 '11 at 23:00

You don't have enough rep on meta to hide it yet.

I thought it went away at 10k to make room for the tools link, but now that tools and review share a spot that doesn't make sense. Apparently it goes away at 5k, but I don't know why

I'd assume just because at 5,000 reputation you should know what Stack Overflow (or Meta) is "about". –  animuson Dec 6 '11 at 23:22
    
Hmmm that is odd. wonder why they make it go bye bye at that point. –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 7 '11 at 13:53
