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

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
