We'd been thinking about a way to visually notify you of new activity using the new header icon. We liked @Anthony Dines' subtle treatment so much it's now rolled out and working.
We opted to simply show the pink dot when there's new activity, showing nothing additional when there's not. Hopefully this helps keep you up to date in lieu of the old sidebar.

THAT IS PURE GENIUS!
Bravo dribbble team, this is fantastic new UI and visual experience :)
I'm all for minimalism.. but I still prefer the list being visible on the homepage
BOOM! Nice. :)
BRB, blushing forever!! :)
Pink Dot and delivery, they go hand in hand. See www.pinkdot.com.
I said this in someone else's post and with all due respect to the work you guys have done on this site and for the community as a whole, but moving the activity bar was a bit of a swing-and-a-miss (buh dum tish~). I actually care more about that information a little more than I do my feed, and having to go up and hover over it every time isn't very fun.
(Also can we talk about the cap on the amount of people we can follow soon?)
Thank you for always making dribbble better!
I totally agree with @Mandy McClausky and @Sean Farrell about the activity feed. But, I don't want to hate too much. The pink dot is certainly a needed element in the new interface. Thanks for adding it!
Great function! But.. this is only pink dot :)
@Sean Farrell @Mandy McClausky Fair enough, and we understand it's a tradeoff. In the long run, we feel showing more shots sans sidebar was more important. Activity seems to be the only item from the old sidebar that some people miss, and we're doing our best while still sticking to the all-shot layout.
The Incoming Activity page itself needs some updating as well, and hopefully we'll be able to get to that and improve the experience there.
Love it! Now just add the "All" tab back to the Activity page please :)
I see a bouncing ball, also thank you for adding this function!
Just what we needed! Thanks :)
Simple execution. Nicely done. Thank you!
@Dribbble Saw the improvement today, but it seems that if I hover over and immediately hover off, the icon disappears. Maybe it only happens if you hover over for at least 2 seconds or click on one of the links?
Did you see my idea for the activity? http://dribbble.com/shots/564909-Dribbble-Redesign-Redesign
caught my eye instantly. well done and thank you :)
So simple. Love.
