I am not sure if this is part of an overall layout change, but the component that showed the most recent/active forum threads disappeared from the front page.

This seems to happen every now and then, it's kind of a bummer. Could any engineer shed some light as to why this happens so often?

I believe they disable it intentionally when the site it under heavy load to make it run more smoothly.

I think this is the case. Also the GB crew are horribly ashamed of us.

@rorie: Might as well post it here since it's sorta related, but the recent forum activity section on the front page seems to be stuck and hasn't updated in 17 hours or so.

@dalai: @rorie: Just wanted to report that it's not updating too. Seems to have been like this for a day now. Tried in Chrome and IE with no change. Even when I log out and clear my browser.

It looks like it should be updating properly now.
