What Happened to GWT "Author Stats"?

I went to check my "Author Stats", under the "Labs" tab in Google Webmaster Tools. GONE!

Anyone else?

In the past, they only gave me credit for about 50% of the pages that I have "fixed up with Google-required special authorship tags", according to their specifications.

At the bottom of the "Labs" page, their disclaimer prevails -
"Webmaster Tools Labs is a testing ground for experimental features that aren't quite ready for primetime (sic). They may change, break or DISAPPEAR AT ANY TIME."

Nothing about the probably of return, however.

They never got as far as crediting me with anything, although the Rich Snippets Testing Tool (under More Resources) still comes through with "verified author markup".

:: mopping brow ::

The author function definitely still exists. Saw it within the last 24 hours while doing a search. (Not, alas, a search for my own pages.)

On average, pages in your site take 0.5 seconds to load (updated on Jan 15, 2012). This is faster than 98% of sites. These estimates are of low accuracy.

Yah. You betcha. But I guess that's a different thread. I was poking around Labs.

Lots of changes going on still.

Did you know that after you verify your authorship with G+ you can UNverify it by removing the markup(you can even close your Google+ profile!) but Google will still give you special search results(including picture)? They forget nothing. That's something to think about if you're running a plugin of any sort to handle markup, save your resources and shut it down :)
