Why does 'Users' Diaries' no longer appear as a heading alongside 'View', 'Edit', 'History', 'Export' and 'GPS Traces' at http://www.openstreetmap.org/index.html?

You can view a change log of the web site source code here:

https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/commits/master

You will find that the change in question has been coded by Tom MacWright here:

https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/commit/ae8cc604a1b7477a79f505592942c2d754825bc1

His reason (taken from an earlier commit that was intended to remove the tab) was:

This eliminates the user diaries tab. I've never understood
why it was there, and think it is of limited utility
given that it displays diary entries in all languages
at once, and user diaries aren't the centerpiece of the site.

Such changes are usually discussed on the rails-dev list so if you want to suggest an alternative, that would be a good place for that.

Note there is now a link to 'User Diaries' in the left-hand sidebar, under the section for 'Community'.

Which is somewhat redundant, because the 'Blogs' page linked in the same section also includes all user diary posts.
