Recently, this started happening:

image of the problem

Shog9 has an immense amount of badges, so many that the number creates a linebreak in the usercard, resulting in weird space below the usercard of the post's author. It also happens when a well-decorated user is the post's author; then the box is just extra tall:

I first noticed it when looking at "The new edit rejection message for "no improvement whatsoever" sounds too hostile." The problem also appears on Stack Overflow:

Jon Skeet

I'm using Google Chrome 47.0.2526.73 on Windows 8.1 at 1920x1080 at the default zoom level.

Updated 12/26/2015: This is not fixed. It was, momentarily, fixed on Meta Stack Exchange (but not for Jon Skeet's usercard on Stack Overflow), but now the problem is happening again, even at the page I linked above.

After Winter Bash ended (tested 1/5/2016): It's still happening, both here and at Stack Overflow.

Related, maybe: Usernames can overflow the box
Related, definitely, but not a duplicate: Is there enough space in the user card for users who have a very large number of badges?

    -1 for not using Jon Skeet as the example. – Mysticial Dec 10 '15 at 2:46

    @Mysticial is totally right. You can't possibly leave Jon Skeet out of such a bug report. Fixed. :-D – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 10 '15 at 7:22
  • This is a dupe of another similar, and equally pointless, question, but I care so little about the entire subject that I won't go looking for it. Might be on meta.so.... – user1228 Dec 10 '15 at 15:05

    The line wrap wouldn't be invasive if it didn't then push everything else on the page down. I noticed this when looking at the users list on one of my sites; the uneven row-to-row spacing jumped out at me, and is new. there's plenty of space between entries already, so it feels like even with the line wrap the user entry could be made to fit without affecting the overall layout. (I know it's a first-world problem, but between a positional memory and knowing how many page-down operations get me through the page -- except when they don't -- it bugs me a little.) – Monica Cellio Dec 10 '15 at 16:10
  • This issue was brought up on Stack Overflow Meta. Can you provide links to the examples you took pictures of above so I can verify if the issue is still persisting? – Hynes Dec 14 '15 at 21:44
  • @Hynes I took my screenshots from meta.stackexchange.com/q/242159/295684, but I don't know where Shadow Wizard got the Jon Skeet one from. – Ben N Dec 14 '15 at 23:19
  • @Ben from Stack Overflow, see the reputation. :) – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 15 '15 at 20:57
