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.

Everybody go to the new questions view and then come back. I will wait for you.

Now that you're back you're surely dizzy and confused because of how screwed up that view is. It's an atrocity that a visual bug like this is allowed to exist. Come on, people. It's 2010: we have HTML 5, CSS 3, Red Sox 6.

Everything is wrong

This has to be stopped here and now. I come to this site to answer questions and to make fun of Jeff. I look for things to line up so that I can position myself to seize the day.

Right when I'm about to grab life by the neck and choke it to death the misaligned right-hand-side of Meta completely turns me around. In my moment of weakness life escapes my grasp and now I have to move to Toronto.

(On the other hand I kinda wanted to move to Toronto, or at least that region, anyway. But I digress.)

Point is, we need to fix this issue. What if a goose looks at it and forgets what direction south is? The entire species would die! Whales, ducks, alligators, Slovenia, all of them would lose their way!

You have the chance to prevent all of this from happening. The power is in your hands. Choose wisely, Atwood's Angels.

I'm confused. Is there and actual issue here? –  jjnguy Aug 19 '10 at 18:13

Is it normal to actually, y'know, draw emoticons? Wouldn't it be easier to just draw a little face? –  mmyers Aug 19 '10 at 18:15

I think it's all in Double Welbog's head. That's what happens when you clone yourself, then kill and eat the clone to gain its power. –  gnostradamus Aug 19 '10 at 18:15

So, that's a no, this is just unintelligible ramblings...@Welbog, you should be more careful who you buy your drugs from.. –  jjnguy Aug 19 '10 at 18:17

@jjjjjguys: Yeah, the things on the side don't line up and it's disorienting the hell out of me. –  XMLbog Aug 19 '10 at 18:17
    
@Double. Ok, I see what you mean. But it doesn't bother me at all. –  jjnguy Aug 19 '10 at 18:19

@jayjay: I am very sensitive to alignment and orientation. I just plain can't navigate through gay pride parades because of all of the different orientations. –  XMLbog Aug 19 '10 at 18:21

Lines are for losers! The site must be arranged in CIRCLES! –  Ladybug Killer Aug 19 '10 at 19:14

Dang, you went and made my OCD kick in. Now I'll never be able to look at any other part of the page. –  tvanfosson Aug 19 '10 at 20:10
    
@tvan, you should form a self-help group with Welbog. –  Ladybug Killer Aug 19 '10 at 20:14

@lady - should we just use the Mental States stackexchange site or do you think we should create a new proposal for just OCD. I can pretty much guarantee that anyone who joins will participate. –  tvanfosson Aug 19 '10 at 20:26
    
@tvan: If Ubuntu needs its own proposal, than OCD for sure. –  Ladybug Killer Aug 19 '10 at 20:30

Something is wrong with your picture. I think there's a blurry image of a website under that straight red line. You should totally drop that. –  balpha Aug 19 '10 at 18:32

Now I can't even stand. Thanks a lot. –  XMLbog Aug 19 '10 at 19:07
    
@balpha: and use jQuery? –  KennyTM Aug 19 '10 at 19:52

Looks pretty lined up here.

(This is a question page. But the things all line up the same on the newest question page as well.)

I'm using Chrome 6.0.495.0 dev. What are you using? Maybe this is a browser-specific issue. –  XMLbog Aug 19 '10 at 18:26

@Double, MSPaint :P –  jjnguy Aug 19 '10 at 18:28

@Double, you had to go and mention Chrome's dev channel. Now Jeff will just come in with a [status-declined] and a comment about not supporting beta browsers. (; –  Rebecca Chernoff Aug 19 '10 at 19:03

@rchern: The "dev" is short for "deviant", not "beta". –  XMLbog Aug 19 '10 at 19:06

@double All this time, I thought it was just for me. –  devinb Aug 20 '10 at 12:28
