What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

When the notification bar is closed, it fades and then disappears. The fade metaphor is gradual removal, but the bar's size remains the same during the fade. It is then removed in one go, which jarringly pops the rest of the page to the top.

It would make more sense to either

  1. Just instantly close the bar.

  2. Decrease the height of the bar at the same rate as the fade, making the gradual metaphor consistent.

This seems more like a feature request then a bug? –  Diago Aug 22 '09 at 17:49
    
From a UI perspective it might probably be called a bug. I'd assign this a very low priority, though. –  balpha Aug 22 '09 at 17:58
    
I noticed this too. It is a little jarring. But not overly important. –  Tom Ritter Aug 22 '09 at 17:59

Personally, I like the Looney Tunes exit: booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo POOF! Didn't everybody think that when they saw the banner leave?
