Why am I still seeing the “about” link on Web Apps and Gaming?

I noticed this maybe a moment ago.

The "about" link is missing...

...but on Meta, it appears fine.

The link to /about is still functioning too, so I don't think that this was intentional.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It went away because you reached 5k, although I'm not entirely sure the original reasons for making it disappear still hold. – Tim Stone Jul 29 '12 at 1:28
@TimStone: Do you have a link to those original reasons? Although I suppose they could be inferred...you've been here long enough to not need read what SO is all about, you know what it's all about. – Makoto Jul 29 '12 at 1:34
I looked, but unfortunately I couldn't find a good explanation for this specific case. In the general case, you lost links to free up space for new ones as you gained privileges, but you obviously only lose a link in this case now. – Tim Stone Jul 29 '12 at 1:45

The link is only shown when you have less than 5,000 reputation.
