Has this been back for a while and I just missed it or was it stealth dropped? Regardless, I have to say I'm glad its back. Thanks engineering team!
I would have preferred they focus on bringing back follower status/blog updates, but this is cool too. Sorta. Even though I was one of the many who originally perused the front page forums only, I've gotten so used to just creating another tab for the forums page now that this feature suddenly feels a little redundant.
