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

While in the middle of typing a question I saw this

which looks kinda weird. Seems the CSS styles aren't updated for all sites?

Well, it does look nice on Meta Stack Overflow though...

What do you mean by "broken"? – random May 18 '11 at 14:21
Based on the screenshots, I believe he's referring to the color scheme, @random. – Pops May 18 '11 at 14:26
@TomWij FYI your e-mail address is showing. I don't know if you care, but I thought you should be notified. – Pops May 18 '11 at 14:27
If it was a colour issue, that doesn't seem "broken" and more a thumbs up for style that kicks you in the upper cleft. It still works/functions. @pop – random May 18 '11 at 14:30
Upper cleft of what? gave me three possibilities on the first page of results. @random – Pops May 18 '11 at 14:40
Now do you see what happens when you use vague descriptors? And that's why you always leave a note. @pop – random May 18 '11 at 14:49
It's indeed the weird colors. @PopularDemand: No problem with that. Thanks for mentioning. – Tom Wijsman May 18 '11 at 14:52
Hey, hey, hey... I've adjusted my post. Sorry... :( – Tom Wijsman May 18 '11 at 14:53
I've been complaining about improper/poor/incorrect use of language since long before this conversation, @random. And I never said you were wrong; I was just trying to help with my interpretation. – Pops May 18 '11 at 14:54

Super User still had some leftover styling specialties in its CSS from back in the days; those were biting us here.

Since those extras aren't needed anymore, we could remove them; after the next build, those question links look like any other link in a sidebar box.

This is a new feature to display similar posts based on the title, content and tags of the question you are currently writing. The existing "Related questions" (now named "Questions with similar titles") under the title only looks at the post title, so this new list should be better.

It is possible that the color scheme is not great on all sites, as this is a new addition and the sidebar previously did not contain as many links as it does now. Feel free to leave a comment on the "feedback requested" post that I linked to.
