Jon Skeet's badge count is being truncated in the questions list. See below as of few minutes back or click on the previous link (you may have to go to second page).

Badge count getting truncated

This is observed in IE9, FF10. Chrome displays it fine.

Maybe badge counts should be truncated like other numbers, to be "1k" and "2k" and so forth? –  animuson Feb 17 '12 at 23:01
    
Reset your page zoom. It only gets clipped if I try and zoom in on the page. –  Tim Cooper Feb 17 '12 at 23:01
    
@TimCooper: No, I can confirm it. Chrome's default font rendering makes the font width slightly smaller, so it "appears" to work fine in Chrome. Firefox's font width is wider so it stretches past the boundary. –  animuson Feb 17 '12 at 23:02

Who cares? It's not like anybody else is getting there anytime soon. :P –  Purag Feb 17 '12 at 23:04
    
This gets reported periodically for Mr Skeet. No one ever explains why they care. Do you even remember what that number was last week when you saw it? –  Cody Gray Feb 17 '12 at 23:08

Adapting the site for Jon's rep and counts is analogous to building every residential garage to be large enough to accommodate a 747. –  jonsca Feb 18 '12 at 2:22

@jonsca, at least 747 doesn't grow :) –  amit_g Feb 18 '12 at 2:28

Is this where we invent a new term, and say that his badge count is "Skeeted"? –  BryceAtNetwork23 Feb 18 '12 at 2:54
