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

I'm writing this just after the shut down of all the SE network.

All sites are back online but there is a little problem, which I'm not sure I should call a bug, but that is certainly annoying and no, it wasn't there before the shut down.

This is how my name appears in the chat-flow:

Is this just me or is it happening to others? I have Lion, using Chrome 18.0.1025.165. Not happening on Firefox 11.0.

This might also be due to Zoom as I said on your other post, see if that fixes it. – Ben Brocka Apr 26 '12 at 13:03
@BenBrocka Uhm... I think it fixed it. I'm not 100% sure because the effects didn't appear instantly, but I think it did it. – Alenanno Apr 27 '12 at 11:59
Did the twitch stop? – Ben Brocka Apr 27 '12 at 14:11
@BenBrocka I don't know about that, since it doesn't happen every time, only sometimes. I'll wait some days and see if it comes again. :) – Alenanno Apr 27 '12 at 14:12
FWIW sounds exactly like the problem I had with Zoom as well – Ben Brocka Apr 27 '12 at 14:21
@BenBrocka Yes you told me! Thank you for your help. If you want you can post that as an answer so I can accept it. I'm not 100% sure it was the fix, for the reason I said above, but now they appear nicely, so I think it's the one. :) – Alenanno Apr 27 '12 at 14:26

Reset your Zoom with Ctrl + 0 and the cut off should stop (⌘ + 0 on a Mac). It's almost certainly zoom weirdness like the problem in The chat is "flickering".
