Currently, when the window becomes too narrow, the whole right sidebar is just appended below the whole main column.

That is bad for two reasons.

  1. Parts that are immediately related to the top and/or actually useful are too far below.
    • asked/viewed/active stats
    • linked/related questions
    • featured on meta (maybe)
    • similar questions, how to ask (Ask Question)
  2. The different sidebar boxes do not utilize the horizontal space available to them.

Concrete proposals

  • Put asked/viewed/active stats under the title, with subtle formatting.
  • Put linked and related questions directly below the question, as fold-outs.
  • Put "Featured on Meta" (those may be important) at the very top; make this box dismissable.
    Hot Meta can remain down below.
  • Make remaining boxes share "lines" if possible.

This seems to have been addressed in the latest build. This is how the current question looks like right now:

  • I think it was first tested on meta.SO for a little and then released throughout the network. – EKons Jul 25 '19 at 11:41
  • Yes, that's standard procedure for changes like that. MSE and/or MSO are updated somewhat ahead of the rest of the network. – Glorfindel Jul 25 '19 at 11:45
  • Pretty sure it was just MSO here. Also, this standard procedure is often omitted. :D – EKons Jul 25 '19 at 11:47
