For some reason the choices listed under the Off-Topic list are all bunched toegther which makes reading difficult and creates a big empty gap between the last reason and the Vote to Close button.

Proposed fix: By increasing the text of each reason's line-height (e.g. line-height:20px), it's not only easier on the eyes, but fits the space better too.

    Maybe it is intentional to be able to add other off-topic close reasons in the future. – HamZa Jul 1 '13 at 19:22

    @HamZa - Maybe. But in the future they can change the style to something else. For now my eyes would appreciate the change. – j08691 Jul 1 '13 at 19:24
  • Are there any examples of other sites that use the whole space? If the CSS is shared across the network, it would have to accommodate the sites which use more close reasons than SO does. – George Cummins Jul 1 '13 at 19:30
  • Is it perhaps to allow room for the "other" comment box when it's shown? – Esoteric Screen Name Jul 1 '13 at 19:31

    @EsotericScreenName - That's another thing that confuses me. Why does the comment box for "other" show up when you click the radio button for that reason, but it doesn't disappear if you then pick another reason? – j08691 Jul 1 '13 at 19:35

    @GeorgeCummins or not necessarily more reasons, but wordier ones. :-) – Aaron Bertrand Jul 2 '13 at 1:50
  • I'm completing this, because as far as I can tell, this is now much better on all sites. I just can't find the dup of this that got marked as completed. – Tim Post Apr 24 '14 at 7:56
  • @TimPost - Hmmm, aside from the close reasons changing since I posted this, the actual styling doesn't look like it was changed. There's still a big gap at the bottom and the lines are still too close together. – j08691 Apr 24 '14 at 12:54
  • @TimPost - I still don't see this as completed on SO, which is what originated my post. Can you remove the status-completed tag? – j08691 Jun 18 '14 at 13:46
