Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In the Reputation Leagues redesign, what became of the Link which appeared beside each user on hover (shown in a screenshot on this meta question from earlier in the week)?

Was it intentionally removed? If so, I would request it restored. It was really useful for seeing a user in context of the surrounding users.


As pointed out in the comments, the link is still there, but never visible.enter image description here

Well, the link's still there...just always hidden, huh. – Tim Stone Mar 1 '12 at 14:07
@TimStone Indeed it is. Maybe this needs a [bug] tag too. – Michael Berkowski Mar 1 '12 at 14:10
was this supposed to show up on hover or something? – Ben Brocka Mar 1 '12 at 14:52
@BenBrocka Yes, it was supposed to appear on hover, and It's already been fixed. – Michael Berkowski Mar 1 '12 at 15:00

This was unintentionally broken when we upgraded from jQuery 1.4.2 to 1.7.1. When using jQuery's hover function, we were checking for the mouseover event type instead of mouseenter. It's fixed now.

Hooray, thanks for the quick action! – Michael Berkowski Mar 1 '12 at 14:59
