There was a small but significant usability problem reported with the design of Personal Finance & Money. This was reported on meta.money.SE 12 months ago. Despite having a high question score and having the bug reported more than once, it has never been addressed or even acknowledged by StackExchange personnel.

Is this issue being tracked somewhere? Is there a way to determine whether or not the report has been seen by StackExchange designers and is planned to be fixed? Is there something else that needs to be done to report the bug besides posting to the meta.money.SE site?

  • It takes 4-6 <insert timeframe here> for many bugs to be fixed. But on a serious note, they do internally track the bugs. I'd guess that the increase in designers at SE might move along some of the design bugs that are out there waiting to be addressed. – Taryn Mar 3 '15 at 18:28

    Yeah, yeah, yeah - I can't edit it now - I may have been feeling generous and I've already had this discussion with someone else @ShadowWizard :) – Taryn Mar 3 '15 at 19:58

  • @nicael you can see it this way: you get more attention than usual, it can be a good thing... :D – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Mar 3 '15 at 20:46
  • This appears to be fixed with the updates to money.SE last week. – Ben Miller Jul 25 '15 at 18:59

It is being tracked.

Jin & Company are working on unifying designs across the network to make fixing stuff like this easier, which should eventually mean faster fixes (and fewer bugs to begin with) - unfortunately, this has delayed a lot of individual fixes.

I'll pass this particular one along to see if we can expedite it.

    Is Jin & Company a subsidiary of SE? :) – Taryn Mar 3 '15 at 18:33

    Subsidiary / shadow organization / something like that. – Shog9 Mar 3 '15 at 18:34
  • Triad backed, IIRC – Oded Mar 3 '15 at 19:24
