Jon Skeet's broken the C# tag stats page formatting on SO!

I was checking the Java top users page earlier and noticed that Jon Skeet's number of badges is too large to be displayed in the layout:

enter image description here

But then I wondered, is it a bug or is it just so because one can't put Jon Skeet in a box?

Bug or not bug? That is the question.

Jon Skeet is not a bug, its the only human on stackoverflow. – Toon Krijthe Aug 6 '12 at 8:51
+1 for "Skeet in a box" ;) – Tex Hex Aug 6 '12 at 8:57
They're badges, not medals... Medals are lame... – animuson Aug 6 '12 at 8:58
Now why did I read that as "Jon Skeet has too many badgers!"? – Bart Aug 6 '12 at 9:07
@animuson Edited. – assylias Aug 6 '12 at 9:08
Related to this which is similar on the badge holders page (3 column overlap) – Rory Aug 6 '12 at 10:12
What? Someone mention badgers? – Kev Aug 6 '12 at 10:58
Badgers are always one too many, even when there is just a badger, and especially when they are in your house. ;) – kiamlaluno Aug 6 '12 at 11:42

Hehee this has been fixed once – Rory Aug 6 '12 at 12:12
Hmmmm solution is to share badges ... with me :). But keep your badgers ! ... Glad to help debate ;) – Jean-Rémy Revy Aug 6 '12 at 12:27

This is an ongoing struggle. The SE network tries to provide the users with a flawless Q&A engine. And the users are working hard to find the flaws in the system.

I would not call it a bug. The SE network is in a growing stage. Whoever has designed that page might not have thought that someone might reach this number of badges. But as these kind of reports are submitted to SE, I am sure there are developers who keep such things in mind. And while performing the page layout update your bug report will be kept in mind by the SE developers.

It's still a bug, unless the page was designed to look like that when a user has that many badges. – Juhana Aug 6 '12 at 10:25
@Juhana You can never predict a 100% of the situation. In this way you can call it bug – Lucifer Aug 6 '12 at 10:27
