What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Each moderator election candidate's stats appear as follows (example chosen at random):

meta participation

questions: 7 / +30

answers: 17 / +73

helpful flags: 750

However, this can be slightly misleading, as the flags displayed under "meta participation" is the candidate's Stack Overflow flag count, not their Meta Stack Overflow flag count.

I acknowledge this is a fairly trivial matter, but to prevent confusion, I would suggest fully qualifying this statistic to be more clear, and/or perhaps placing a light horizontal rule between the answers line and the flag weight line.

If you have 750 flag weight on Meta, wow. –  user7116 Nov 15 '11 at 7:41

@sixlettervariables: Sounds like the source of a "I'm so meta..." joke. –  Nightfirecat Nov 15 '11 at 7:56

I think adding a horizontal rule would work, but seeing as there's already a number of different shades of grey used in that page, and that the page already has its fair share of horizontal rules, I feel like it would work better just to order them differently:

helpful flags: 750

meta participation

questions: 7 / +30

answers: 17 / +73

Or:

helpful flags: 750

meta questions: 7 / +30

meta answers: 17 / +73
