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

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'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.
