This looks like it has recently changed (could just be me) but I think it used to look like this:

Can it be changed back - bold seems quite jarring? I can see that it makes it stand out but I do prefer the old style.

    @bluefeet Intentionally - as in new design? Or bad css released? – Tim Dec 7 '15 at 18:53
  • This was an intentional change to have the rep be a bit more visible when displayed next to the badge totals. – Taryn Dec 7 '15 at 19:18

    @bluefeet okay, changed to feature-request. – Tim Dec 7 '15 at 19:21
  • It also used to be quite a bit lighter - the font weight wasn't the only thing that changed. – Undo Dec 7 '15 at 19:30

    We have beefier servers and fatter pipes - of course we gotta have more bold! – Shog9 Dec 7 '15 at 21:37
  • @Shog9 I think you had a different font back then. Now it's kinda hard to read bold numbers like "806" when there's only a pixel of space between them. – Troyen Dec 7 '15 at 21:48
  • @Shog9 so every 3 years you toggle boldness? – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Dec 7 '15 at 21:48
  • I think the color and the boldness was the same as the color and the boldness of the reputation (still) shown for the users in the questions tabs. – kos Dec 8 '15 at 1:36
  • @Tim The boldness has been dimmed. – Taryn Dec 8 '15 at 2:23
  • @bluefeet that looks status completed to me :) much less jarring - thanks! – Tim Dec 8 '15 at 6:39

Well, this is still bold however "dimmed" by making the color lighter:

All in all, fair compromise in my opinion.

  • It's become bold again! (on Stack Overflow) – Farhan Anam Dec 8 '15 at 20:21
  • @FarhanAnam it's bold here too, but in SO the color is darker indeed. Not black though, so still not terrible. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Dec 8 '15 at 20:25
  • 6-8 of course, @Far. BTW you can ask me anything in the chat, I've got a room there. :-) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Dec 8 '15 at 20:29
