Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The reached percentage for the "remove new user restrictions" privilege is show on a new line.

In some sites, for example, that happens also when the privilege page being viewed is not for that privilege.


In other sites, for example (a beta site), that happens when viewing that privilege page.



I am using Safari 5.1.2 running on Mac OS X 10.7.2.

This bug has been fixed with the roll out of the new theme for beta sites.

Isn't that true for beta sites? Only beta sites use the new theme. In my question I am referring to both beta, and graduated sites (such as Drupal Answers). – kiamlaluno Mar 21 '12 at 13:12
I don't see the issue on Drupal Answers anymore; I guess the fix is valid for all the sites. – kiamlaluno Mar 21 '12 at 13:13
@kia: Yes, it would only be true for beta sites. I didn't realize that Drupal wasn't in beta (and looking at it now, it's actually quite beautiful; too bad I don't know anything about Drupal!). It does appear that they've reduced the font size slightly, though, so I guess that has made the problem disappear. – Cody Gray Mar 21 '12 at 16:04
@TheEstablishment, this still occurs for me on SO and meta (didn't check other sites), on my copy of Firefox 12.0 running on ArchLinux, viewed on a reasonably wide desktop screen. – ArjunShankar Jun 7 '12 at 0:11

This happens when the Font Size setting in Chrome options --> Under the Hood is set to Large. Guess Safari has similar settings?

The container element (sidebar) has fixed width that is simply not enough, so the text has to wrap over two lines.

I don't think it's really a bug and can't see any reasonable solution as the sidebar is floating so relative width (in percentage) probably won't really work.

Anyway, using Medium font size makes it look nice and dandy.

I changed the font size, in Safari, but that didn't have any effect on how the privilege page is rendered. – kiamlaluno Mar 8 '12 at 20:57
Maybe it render stuff differently. Can you test on Chrome? – Shadow Wizard Mar 8 '12 at 21:50
Actually, I don't have the same issue, with Google Chrome 17.0.963.79 and an unregistered account. – kiamlaluno Mar 12 '12 at 16:07

If number and text are sorted in reverse order, the layout is more simple to do, because the first column is of 2-4 chars width:

  7% low
 90% Revolution number nine 
100% foobar bar baz bazzabar
100% vote up
100% vote down
