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

This probably falls along the lines of being as minor as a pluralization bug...

I noticed that the vote count in the upper-left corner isn't being rendered properly.

It overflows the icon box:

I realized that even the 3rd digit overruns the box. So I checked a suggested edit on a post with < 1000 votes and sure enough, it still overflows:

Unlike on the profile pages:

  • The font size fails to shrink for +100 posts.
  • The icon box fails to expand for +1000 posts.
  • The color doesn't change to green with yellow text when the post is an accepted answer.

I didn't notice this before. So was it a recent update that broke it?

For some reason the <span> containing the score has a fixed width of 15 pixels so its background covers only those 15 pixels but as it has no overflow: hidden; the text overflowing that width is still visible. The whole Review system went through a major change recently so it's likely they changed CSS while working on that. – Shadow Wizard Jul 31 '12 at 10:39
If you see somebody with a big K walking in your direction, please run! – Toon Krijthe Jul 31 '12 at 10:56
I find the edit reason ironic on the four-digit post example. ;) – Andrew Barber Jul 31 '12 at 12:14
This looks like it's status-completed now. Waiting for a mod to add the tag. – Mysticial Aug 19 '12 at 7:13
