I'm not sure when it happened, but at some point the links on the sidebar to The Comms Room and Vote to Close went away. I wondered about their disappearance, but didn't bother to post a question here.
Today I noticed that sometimes on some questions, the links show up. I can't quite see a pattern, but it looks like questions that are posted in a chat room have the links on them?
In any case, would it be possible to get the links back - permanently?
