Heads up: small design changes, a better user card and some long-expected features
Update: The reputation number in the header has been added back again for the time being, until we have found a suitable solution.
This is just a quick heads up, that you are, indeed, not crazy and that the design of the header really changed.
We deployed a few nice and (at least some of them) long-expected changes:
- a community switcher in the header, which can be used to easily move between the communities,
- an inline search-bar that allows you to start a search without leaving the page (middle-click for the old behavior),
- a re-designed user card (more infos below), and
- a list of suggested edits for each category.
Furthermore, there have been a few minor changes, such as dropping the (not very useful) "Categories" entry from the menu and making the moderator menu more helpful (when there are flags: clicking on the "Mod" item brings you to the flags as before, but if there aren't any, you'll get immediately to the moderator tools).
With regards to the user card:
This is part of our move away from reputation (although we will not remove the option to have reputation for now). From now on, communities can decide, which details are supposed to be shown on it. We'll update the site settings upon requests by the moderators.
The default setting is called
r.12sE. In this description, "." means a forced new line (display might break to a second line anyway depending on its length), "r" reputation, "p" number of posts, "1" top-level posts, "2" second-level posts (answers), "s" score of votes received (up - down), "v" number of votes received, "V" number of votes cast, "E" number of edits made on posts.
