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

I noticed that the reputation on this page http://stackoverflow.com/users?tab=newusers is not bold, but it is on all the other tabs under Users.

Is there a reason or is it a bug?

Looking at the link provided, I'm not seeing reputation listed a all. – Xarcell Mar 15 '13 at 17:05

@Xarcell The text next to the user icon states how much reputation a new users has earned in the past X days. Which is most likely also part of the "problem". It's not a pure reputation listing, but part of a larger string. – Bart Mar 15 '13 at 17:07
    
Gotcha, I see what your saying now. – Xarcell Mar 15 '13 at 17:12

I wouldn't call this a BUG. This is more of a design issue for StackOverflow Meta. Simply adjusting your HTML or CSS for it will make it more visible, which I don't even really think is necessary, or be considered a top priority, but I do see how you can view it as an issue.

EDIT: Since it is not consistent, it should be adjusted to reflect it's siblings.

It's not a big thing but I see the reputation in bold on the other pages. So I am wondering why it's not consistent. – NilsB Mar 15 '13 at 17:17
    
If it's not consistent, then yes it should be bold. A design flaw. – Xarcell Mar 15 '13 at 17:23
    
The meta tag used for such issues is always [bug], so... – BoltClock's a Unicorn Mar 15 '13 at 17:27
    
@BoltClock As a designer myself, I disagree. The "Design" tag should be used, which he as used anyway along with the "Bug" tag. – Xarcell Mar 15 '13 at 17:30

I know that. My point is that the required tag for reporting technical issues, regardless of their nature, is [bug] - you can always use the [design] tag to indicate that it's a design issue, but you still have to use [bug] because none of the other required tags fit the purpose. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Mar 15 '13 at 17:31
