    I never use it. I always click the forums tab, then scroll down (or not) and click the forum.

    Not something I personally use. I mean, I know it is there but I prefer just viewing the forum list. Would be good for those new to navigating XF

    Very, very, very, very rarely. In fact, I think I've only ever used it once or twice...

    Have never used it to be honest.

    I also know that many people disable it, believing it to be superfluous.

    However the implementation that @digitalpoint uses is pretty awesome. As well as being a handy navigation menu, his moderators can drag and drop threads directly onto it to move them o_O

    Click on it.
    Scroll down...

    Rather click on Forums or New Posts and scroll down.

    I think it's a great feature, particularly for new users, but it's too small for people to notice. I wish that there was a text label/phrase next to it so that it would grab people's attention. Our visitors don't have much experience with forums, so cues like this are vital.

    I was thinking of using Nodes As Tabs to create a menu of portions of the forum/site that intermediate users might not find. Then I realized that all I had to do was edit the QuickNav template for a better solution. Now all I have to do is draw more attention to it.

    A sidebar for watched forums is much useful

    Never. Even though the function has a lot of potential, it's too hidden to be useful. I like Waindigo's mega menu and DigitalPoints implementation of the quick navigation menu as both are awesome and useful. While both are very similar to the XF QNM I do not find XF's implementation useful at all.

    I find myself wondering what that link is every so often. Then I click it and go.. Oh. Then move on.

    Never! Although I'm sure it gets used since it was hidden by mistake in a recent version of UI.X and other admins were quickly asking for it's return. I personally didn't miss it and preferred it gone.

    I reckon more people will use it if it features a new content indicator. It's pretty stale how it is currently.
