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

Or: Aaronut is six moderators by himself

To reproduce this, visit Now click on some link in the page; I chose the "parent" link at the top of the screen. Now click back.

If your browser is anything like mine (and let's hope it isn't, because I wouldn't wish IE7 on anyone), everyone has just moved up a slot -- Sam Holder is gone and Aaronut now occupies two spots. Do it enough times and you'll discover that Aaronut is singlehandedly keeping the cooking trolls at bay.

I also reproduced this on the main SO about page, only there it works a bit differently. After clicking somewhere and then going back, each of the left column occupies the corresponding slot on the right column also.

So, um, that's not supposed to happen, is it?

mmyers what browser are you using, I've tried it in a few different browsers and can't duplicate – xiaohouzi79 Aug 23 '10 at 22:12
IE7. @xiaohouzi79 – mmyers Aug 23 '10 at 22:14
Your browser sucks... ;) – George Marian Aug 23 '10 at 22:20
No repro in WinXP + FF 3.6.6. – Jon Seigel Aug 23 '10 at 22:47

No repro in IE8 or Chrome 6.0.472.62 - win xp. – Peter Ajtai Sep 23 '10 at 4:29
No repro with IE7 on XP SP3. I tried returning to the page by using a link and by using the back button. I tried while logged in and while logged out. All flairs appeared correctly in every case. (That said, @Aaro is a force to be reckoned with.) – Pops Sep 23 '10 at 14:16
Hmm. I'm on Vista, but I wouldn't have thought the OS would make a difference. @Pop – mmyers Sep 23 '10 at 14:35
@mmyers, I didn't even know you could have IE7 on Vista. Thought it shipped with IE8. But that's neither here nor there. Let me know if you want me to do additional testing of some sort. – Pops Sep 23 '10 at 14:56
@Popular Demand Vista shipped with IE7, Win7 shipped with IE8. – Brian Campbell Oct 23 '10 at 4:55
@Brian, d'oh! Thanks for the correction. – Pops Oct 23 '10 at 17:15
No not on my XP SP3 IE7 – Benny Jan 21 '11 at 9:39
@Benny: Are you saying you can or can't reproduce the bug? It was marked completed, but I no longer have to use IE7 (or even have access to it) so I don't have first-hand knowledge. – mmyers Jan 21 '11 at 16:29
I can't reproduce the bug. – Benny Jan 22 '11 at 1:38

This is no longer an issue with the new image flair.
