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

...from space, since it's huge on the trilogy sites:

huge badge award count

I know it's meant to be emphasized, but given that it dwarfs any of the other text on the site and it doesn't seem to be consistent with the styling used on other non-trilogy sites in the network, I feel like this probably isn't desirable.

+1 for humor. In a few days we will make some tweaks, and I agree that looks a bit big. – Jeremy T Jun 18 '13 at 23:27
Excellent! There's another issue on those pages that could benefit from a minor tweak as well, in case it wasn't on your radar. – Tim Stone Jun 18 '13 at 23:29
Agreed. Every time I see the giant number it seems to be saying, "SO HOW COME YOU DON'T HAVE IT?" – Asad Saeeduddin Jun 24 '13 at 23:00
45px. 45 pixels. That's huge indeed, not to mention not consistent with the font size of other elements which is relative i.e. given in percents. On other sites it's 120% size which is sane. – Shadow Wizard Jun 25 '13 at 9:53
@Jeremy no announcement on the fix? :) – Shadow Wizard Jul 16 '13 at 7:37
I almost expected to see "binoculars provided" as an answer. – Mołot Jul 16 '13 at 8:30

It appears to have been fixed:

You need a pair of binoculars to see the question tagged [status-completed] 7 hours before you answered it. – Antony Jul 16 '13 at 7:03
Yea... This is not an answer. – Lix Jul 16 '13 at 7:15
@Lix I added screen shot of the fixed page – gnat Jul 16 '13 at 7:33
@Antony exactly. I knew this would be met with downvote[s], but I did it anyways. – Cole Johnson Jul 16 '13 at 8:16
@ColeJohnson I think you did the right thing. Grokking through the meaning oh-so-freking-prominent status-completed seems easy only to meta regulars; vast majority of SE readers would probably initially perceive the question as they do at non-meta sites: un-answered, ignored and abandoned. If we want meta to be convenient to read for major SE audience, we better strive for conventional "indicators" like answered, accepted – gnat Jul 16 '13 at 9:03
Especially since Community♦ is going to bump the question otherwise... like now. – Jan Dvorak Aug 15 '13 at 8:07
@JanDvorak let's bump it again: bump ;) – Cole Johnson Aug 15 '13 at 8:20
