What happened to the G2G Categories?

+2 votes
I typically like to come into G2G and look at the questions in the different categories. Today, I don't see the "Categories" Tab -- it appears to have been replaced with a "Tags" Tab. I can no longer see all questions related to WikiTree Tech or Special Projects! Where'd they go?

Oh! There they are: you moved them to the column to the right of the page.

There used to be a tab? Haha, I'd never noticed. I've always used the links on the right.
Hi Jillaine and Lianne,

There used to be both a tab and links in the right column. A few days ago I removed the tab. I didn't think anyone would miss it. :-)

I wanted to make more room for the tab that's coming soon: "Following". That'll be where you see just the questions related to the tags you're following. So anxious to get this live!

FYI, the categories in the right-hand column aren't always there; their appearance seems to be context specific, but I haven't done the analysis of when they are and are not there. They definitely show up when you select Ask a Question, but I don't think they're there when you've just selected G2G from the Help menu.
I just checked, and they're there on the main page, and the Questions tab, but not the other tabs. And if you're looking at a question they're also there.
