Comments that have three digit votes or two digit votes extend beyond the left side of the comment.

Whilst this is visible without hovering over the comment due to the end of the separating line, it is especially noticeable when the comment is hovered over, as above.

    It would help if you could link to the post so that people can see the comment and post your browser and OS. I've been having a fair few problems on Chrome on Win 7 at the moment for instance, but it doesn't seem to be affecting many people. Apr 17, 2014 at 13:48
  • No repro here, either (Chrome 34, Windows 7).

  • You didn't, by any chance, happen to be using SOUP when you noticed this behavior? That's a known side effect of the styling fix I included for this bug: the fix makes the comment table left column width constant, causing long vote counts to overflow to the left. With the current SE comment HTML, there's not a lot that I can do about it; increasing the fixed left column width would help here, but would make it look worse for single-digit vote counts.

  • @Ilmari I honestly can't remember—it was quite a while ago. I just installed it now to test and it seems fine, but you've made changes to it since April :) I disable userscripts/etc when making bug reports, though maybe I forgot about SOUP at the time.

This is now – not quite sure when, but it has been fixed.

    The SOUP feature that sometimes triggered this issue has also been rewritten as of v1.22, and should no longer cause this effect. Oct 7, 2014 at 19:03
