Apparently the question suggestion feature was updated lately. I like the copy: "Questions that may already have your answer". The list of suggestions seems....exorbitant.

enter image description here

Didn't that list used to be limited to 5 questions? 10 questions would be a lot. This is a bit more than overkill (and dropped the question body box clear below the fold on a 1080p monitor!). I repro'd this on Cog Sci Meta and MetaSO, UX, seems to be everywhere.

I like this approach. If you want to ask a question, we make you read 7 to 10 pages of loosely related questions. This'll cut down on bad questions for sure! –  user7116 Jun 8 '12 at 19:07
I'm speculating that it might be related to this question, but it could easily be a bug too. –  Tim Stone Jun 8 '12 at 19:19
@TimStone the copy was definitely edited, I'm guessing the CSS might have been tweaked (and borked) in the process –  Ben Brocka Jun 8 '12 at 19:20

We're working on the results here (much cleaner format in the works) and a style="title-search-container" crept in rewrite, instead of class="title-search-container", our bad.

A fix for this is being built/deployed right now, it should be resolved across the network in a few minutes.

I think it's missing CSS. If I remember correctly, that area used to have a max-height and overflow:auto. Did balpha rchern break something..?

I believe this fixes it:

.title-search-container {
  max-height: 150px;
  overflow: auto;

If true, that would do it –  Ben Brocka Jun 8 '12 at 19:09
Yeah, I saw this earlier today and thought "I wonder why they uncollapsed this." –  Pops Jun 8 '12 at 19:09
I still blame balpha. Actually wait, no, I blame Becksta! –  The Unhandled Exception Jun 8 '12 at 19:13
There's enough blame to blame both of them. –  Pëkka Jun 8 '12 at 19:15
lmao@Pekka. Just remember at least one of them has evil powers. –  The Unhandled Exception Jun 8 '12 at 19:17
The CSS is already's the lack of a class on the element if you do a double take :) –  Nick Craver Jun 9 '12 at 15:02
