Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

My email address is pretty long, and it gets eaten up by my description. Here's a screenshot of my Apple Stack Exchange profile...

The same thing happens on my Stack Overflow profile too. Could this get fixed somehow?

Well I can't repro this for my profiles on SE sites. What browser are you using? – Cody Gray Apr 2 '12 at 16:06
Safari 5.0.2, but I set my default user agent to Firefox 3.6. (I know for sure Firefox 3.something) – CoffeeRain Apr 2 '12 at 16:08
And you do this because...? The awesomeness of WebKit is just too much for you to handle? Anyway, I also can't repro this in real Firefox 3.6 (which I just so happen to have installed). – Cody Gray Apr 2 '12 at 16:10
A site for school prompts me to use Firefox 3.x, though Safari works with it. I access this site so often that I changed my default user agent so I could just use the site without warnings. – CoffeeRain Apr 2 '12 at 16:13
Hmm, you do have a very long email address, and email addresses are only visible to you and sometimes moderators, so this isn't a huge bug. I'll ping Jin, our designer, to see what he thinks. – Jarrod Dixon Apr 2 '12 at 17:23

As Jarrod said, your email is unusually long. We have limited space in that area. Your email address is only visible to you and the mods. In rare cases where the mods need to contact you, the email address is already a link, so it won't affect accessibility.
