Usually, little gear icons appear in the Activity page by the "next privilege" and "next badge" trackers. The gears have disappeared, but they work if I click on where they should be:

the Reputation section, without gears

I am signed in, and everything works normally if I click the right spot.

I'm using Chrome 49.0.2623.112 on 64-bit Windows 8.1.

  • It's also missing for me, latest Chrome and Firefox on 64-bit Windows 10. Consoles show no errors.

  • Looks like all sorts of icons have disappeared. The one for helpful flags... location... but I think it's limited to the profile page.

  • @rene Some minimalist design is too minimalist... Knowing where to hover/click isn't enough, I think :P

I noticed this as well. When I investigated the issue, I discovered it was a bad SVG file merge. This has been fixed.
