Today I saw this
But in the past, I used to see them in the right-hand top corner of the (already not-so-nice) layout.
Is this a permanent or a bug?
Is this added in order to make way for ads (atop the already to-be occupied space of hot-meta posts https://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/387546/we-re-removing-hot-meta-posts-from-stack-overflows-sidebar-for-now-moderator)?
PS1: please only see the highlighted part
PS2: I know that the removal of hot-meta posts column is only for stack-overflow (for now). But I suspect it will soon be rolled-out throughout the community.
