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
  1. Access the beta chat
  2. Try reading this message:
  3. Notice how the message is momentarily placed at the top of the screen in yellow
  4. Notice how the message is pushed down as question, answer, user links, images, wikipedia links, etc. above it are loaded.
  5. The message, hilighted in yellow, moves down to another castle screenful

This is most noticeable when first loading the page, as most of the blocks with "delayed loading" will be cached otherwise. Use Ctrl-F5 to see the problem in full effect.

I think this is because we don't know the dimensions of any embedded user images "above" the message.
