It would be great if we could see all the info in the About Me container instead of going down using the scroll bar. I have seen many user pages where I need to use the scroll to see the entire profile information.

So J. Random Funnyguy can put 750 <br>s in his profile text?

Scroll down to see the answers – where have I heard that before? :)

Not going to happen.

I always knew @random was a troublemaker. –  Tim Stone Apr 27 '11 at 18:49
    
Okay. Can't we at least duplicate the size of it? Or just trim the empty lines, like if the user enters more than 5 consecutive lines, keep only 5? Of course, he could write a line, and 5 spaces, a line, and 5 spaces, but I don't really think that's the idea of any user here. –  Oscar Mederos Apr 27 '11 at 20:55

@Oscar the point is: This change (even with that restriction) changes the layout of the user profile unpredictably -- and the usual thing people care about is the user's questions and answers. How often do you need to see the 17th line of the "about me" text immediately? –  balpha Apr 27 '11 at 21:14

Shoving useful content down the page is not a good idea, but I wouldn't mind a "Click here to view About Me on a fullsize page" link.

To confirm @balpha's post: enter image description here enter image description here


I removed the CSS-rule with Web Inspector.

That looks like far less than 1500 <br> tags. –  Grace Note Apr 27 '11 at 18:50
    
But it comes close. –  rightfold Jun 4 '11 at 14:36

I partly agree. The current box is too small; it could stand to be twice or three times as large as it currently is.

Meh. It's easily three times too large. –  Shog9 Apr 27 '11 at 19:26
    
@Shog9: height and max-height? –  Won't Apr 27 '11 at 20:00
