There are some pretty substantial issues with the display on SF&F SE. Names are showing up in blue instead of red, profiles are aligned incorrectly (all the text is appearing in a single column on the left hand side of the page, rather than in two columns, one on each side).

The same problem is occurring on Seasoned Advice SE, and apparently both SF&F and Seasoned Advice are among the SE sites that have not implemented the new profile pages.

Is this part of an update, or is the site going into meltdown?

  • This belongs on Science Fiction & Fantasy Meta, so I've voted to close it as off-topic. – Doorknob Jun 23 '15 at 0:09

    @Doorknob - the thinking in SF&F chat is that Meta Meta might be trying to bring SF&F in line with the other sites. – Wad Cheber Jun 23 '15 at 0:10
  • Huh? This is a scifi.SE specific question, so it belong on the scifi.SE child meta. – Doorknob Jun 23 '15 at 0:12

    Actually, Seasoned Advice has some odd code going on... links just got a lot bluer. – Catija Jun 23 '15 at 0:12

    @Doorknob - Again, people in the SF&F chat rooms are wondering if Meta is updating SF&F to make it conform to the CSS on other SE's. And as Catija just pointed out, it is also happening on Seasoned Advice. It is no longer a problem specific to SF&F – Wad Cheber Jun 23 '15 at 0:15
  • Uhh, only the Stack Exchange developers can update the code for a site (and they have an internal bug tracker that lists all correctly tagged bug reports network-wide, regardless of which meta they're posted on). – Doorknob Jun 23 '15 at 0:18
  • Yeah, Seasoned Advice is also wonky. Same exact problems. Links are oddly blue, and profiles are improperly aligned. – Wad Cheber Jun 23 '15 at 0:18
  • @Doorknob - Then why, pray tell, is the same exact thing happening on Seasoned Advice? – Wad Cheber Jun 23 '15 at 0:19

    Because the SE devs didn't feed Jin enough bacon? ;) I can only speculate, but it might have something to do with the new LESS codebase that's been slowly being rolled out across all the sites. – Doorknob Jun 23 '15 at 0:21
  • @Doorknob Then it would appear that this question belongs here. The issue is not isolated to a single site. Apparently both SF&F and Seasoned Advice are SE sites without the new profile pages. – Wad Cheber Jun 23 '15 at 0:23
  • Yes, if you edit your question to mention that the problem also exists on cooking.SE I will retract my close vote. – Doorknob Jun 23 '15 at 0:24
  • @Doorknob - Done. – Wad Cheber Jun 23 '15 at 0:26

    This affects numerous sites; a fix is being developed. – Shog9 Jun 23 '15 at 0:36

    @Doorknob To be fair, it was reasonable to expect that this issue might be part of the network-wide CSS updates, and one good way to make sure you find whatever other sites it might be affecting is posting here. Going through all the sites to see if they're messed up (especially if you don't know how they all looked before) is hard. – Cascabel Jun 23 '15 at 0:44

    This happened on Mi Yodeya, too. We posted on our meta and AFAIK went unnoticed; MSE was the right place to post. – Monica Cellio Jun 23 '15 at 2:48

We rolled out a new image uploader today. Unfortunately, the design was targeted at the new-design sites only, and so the image uploader stopped working (at all) on the old-design sites.

In a hurry to get the image uploader working, we grafted the new image uploader styles to the old base styles. This had some of the side effects you noticed. We have since fixed these side effects. My sincere gratitude to our design team for helping out with this in off-hours!

    Thanks to everyone! So nice to have the appropriate colors back and the new image loader is very nice. – Catija Jun 23 '15 at 1:11

    Indeed, I'd noticed the new uploader, so thanks for that too - I'm glad the solution wasn't to take it away! – Cascabel Jun 23 '15 at 1:16

    the real question is, how many "6-8 weeks" until we lesser beings at SF&F get the new design? :) – KutuluMike Jun 23 '15 at 1:36

    Thanks to you and the design team for getting the fix out so quickly! – Monica Cellio Jun 23 '15 at 2:49
  • Still does not work for me on Mathematica.SE. Opera 12.17. You could say to use a browser that is not 18 months old, but there is still no good alternative IMO, and imgur's own uploader does work correctly. As of now I have to upload to imgur, pass a link to the StackExchange imgur uploader, and then delete the original image. I am asked if I want to upload the image, but when I accept, the upload never happens. Clicking (I assume this would bring up a dialog to choose the image?) also does nothing. – Oleksandr R.

    Hey... I think something killed SFF's links again... they're blue again. – Catija Oct 2 '15 at 14:34

    This is broken again on Mi Yodeya, which hasn't been updated to the new style yet. – Monica Cellio Oct 2 '15 at 15:28
  • @MonicaCellio I've created a new question for this recent event. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/267265/… – Catija Oct 2 '15 at 16:15
