I just noticed that on a profile with a sufficiently long display name, the HTML element containing useful moderator links gets wrapped behind the profile text box and is thus invisible. Best explained by the screenshots:

versus what it should look like:

I got the latter image by removing part of the name using Firebug.

It's not supposed to do that, is it?

    Ooooh... now I have a way to prevent being whacked by mods! Or, at least, to annoy them as they are trying to whack me. Hmm... maybe not a good idea? – Andrew Barber Oct 29 '13 at 1:31

    I've seen this too. Reducing the font size also fixes it (so you don't have to hack the name), but that's irritating. – Monica Cellio Oct 29 '13 at 3:43

    Now let's just create a sock with a long name and inappropriate behavior and watch as the mods strain to get my account removed. – John Dvorak Oct 29 '13 at 11:47
  • I've had luck selecting and dragging down to force the element to scroll down. This is also a bug on EE.SE – W5VO Nov 6 '13 at 2:14
  • This has been reported before, albeit not on MSO – Manishearth Nov 6 '13 at 6:43
  • Does this still happen for you? When I test it (both here, on Physics and on EE.SE), a long username does cause the links to wrap, but they just push the "about me" box down instead of being hidden behind it. Perhaps the CSS has been changed somehow since you reported this? – Ilmari Karonen Jan 18 '14 at 21:51
  • @IlmariKaronen Yes, I'm seeing the same thing as you do now, so there must have been some change in the CSS. – David Z Jan 18 '14 at 21:53
  • OK, voting to close as "not reproducible". Oh, and have a +1. :) – Ilmari Karonen Jan 18 '14 at 21:54
  • Oh you can do that? Cool, I'll add my vote as well. – David Z Jan 18 '14 at 21:56
