    Yeah, same here on MSE. Most users, including top users, don't have the label anymore. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jan 6 at 14:21
  • Using any userscripts? I see it just fine, it's just using all time instead of this month: i.stack.imgur.com/HKBX1.png If not, can you let us know what browser/version/OS? – Catija Jan 6 at 15:09
  • @Catija I see it now too, but didn't before. Might have been temporary glitch that was "fixed" on its own. Let's see what OP says. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jan 6 at 15:22
