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

Did anyone else notice the vote column is too narrow for 4-digits (1000+ votes)?

Seems like a very minor issue, but I thought I'd just point it out.

If we don't want to widen it (and still have the title in a new line), we may want to consider aligning the text with the other questions.

Sample question showing this.

Get those k-s in. – ben is uǝq backwards May 21 '13 at 21:51
We may also have to consider downvoting that question into submission. – Paul Bellora May 21 '13 at 21:56
option a: widen it by a couple of pixels. option b: downvote the question 119 times. :P – Doorknob May 21 '13 at 21:59
May have a bit more of a problem with the 3633 votes required to get this one below 1000. – Dukeling May 21 '13 at 22:09
We might have to put a 999 score limit on all questions... – American Luke May 21 '13 at 22:49
@Dukeling Challenge accepted... – Adam Lear May 22 '13 at 0:29
I don't have any 1K+ questions, so we might as well downvote them back to 999... :P – American Luke May 22 '13 at 1:03
This has been fixed by now. – Shadow Wizard Oct 17 '13 at 15:05

I think we should take the same approach we do elsewhere and use rounding - 1k, 2k, etc.

Basically, use the same behaviour we already do on /questions and the home page for consistency.

Any idea who fixed it? :-) – Shadow Wizard Oct 17 '13 at 15:06
@ShaWizDowArd It's better, but it's not exactly the ideal fix as now all the titles no longer start at the same left position (which is not exactly good UI design). – Dukeling Oct 17 '13 at 15:08
@Dukeling still a fix - it's no longer "falling down". – Shadow Wizard Oct 17 '13 at 15:10
@ShaWizDowArd As a technicality, I pointed out that the column is too narrow, not that it's 'falling down'. – Dukeling Oct 17 '13 at 15:12
