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

Where it shows your total review count on the review tab such as late answers, it flashes the number with a comma for split second. For example, 2,119 before quickly turning into 2119. This is inconsistent with the stats page which always shows the number with a comma in the top right beside your progress bar. I noticed this a while ago but I figured I was being pedantic.

My question: why does the comma disappear on the actual reviewing page but on the stats page it keeps the comma? Can this be made to be consistent?

Probably never intended for it to get that far? – Brian Dec 11 '12 at 17:52
@0A0D Not true. Suggested edits started with people with over 8,000 reviews. Low quality and close votes also started in the thousands. – Austin Henley Dec 11 '12 at 17:54
This is why this site is so damn solid. We OCD on virtually every single (sometimes stupid and minor) "bugs". :D – Mysticial Dec 11 '12 at 17:55
@AustinHenley: I don't know about that.. I don't have that many reviews – Brian Dec 11 '12 at 17:56
@0A0D I don't either. Anyone can view it by going to the stats page: – Austin Henley Dec 11 '12 at 17:56

You will have commas after the next build. Enjoy!

Awesome. Can you explain why it disappeared? – Austin Henley Dec 11 '12 at 19:51
Sure, they were never there for the > 999 case. We manufactured a few more commas from our comma factory to support this feature. – Geoff Dalgas Dec 11 '12 at 19:52
Do you make free trade commas or corporate oppression commas? – Ben Brocka Dec 11 '12 at 20:16
Can we have commas in the "Top Reviewers all time" section too? :X – Austin Henley Dec 12 '12 at 0:04
