I notice recently that the right side of pages (both the main page and question pages) shows a list of tags and recent badges instead of a list of Hot Network Questions that usually appears. The hot questions list can still be accessed via its usual webpage.

I also noticed this uber Meta post saying there would be scheduled maintenance that seems to be going on at the moment.

Question 1a) Is everyone missing the HNQs? (A browsing of the Hot-Questions tag at uber Meta didn't reveal anything relevant)

Question 1b) If so, is this maintenance-related?

EDIT: Two hours later, they're back.

  • $\begingroup$ I got such a message seven to eight hours ago. I know there was some maintenance notice for today, can't remember when, though. $\endgroup$ – Namaste Jul 8 '17 at 22:25
  • $\begingroup$ As far as "Hot Network Questions", I'd be delighted to have them permanently removed from any list of them shown on the right; for those who follow them, they have the link to the relevant web-page you've given. $\endgroup$ – Namaste Jul 8 '17 at 22:29
