  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I could swear on a recent podcast I heard @spolsky refer to it as "Universal Inbox" but now I'm seeing that the correct name is "StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™." When did this renaming take place?

Funny how some people can't post a question on SO with complete sentences, but the name of this thing is always perfectly preserved, all the way down to the Trademark monikers. I guess copy-paste works after all. – Robert Harvey May 3 '12 at 20:24

It didn't.

Note that the Universal Inbox is just a part of the "StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™", because there are other tabs; but it is an important part for most of us.
