When I visit my activity page I see this:

two sections on the page have their appearance broken

  • The "Congratulations! You've earned (badge)" section has dropped down completely beneath the tabs under it.

  • The "You've earned a new privilege!" section has a gap at the bottom:

    small space inside the box beneath the button

Shog9 says in comments how to reproduce this:

Gotta have earned a badge, not dismissed the notification, and be looking at your own profile.

  • cannot reproduce on chrome

    I have reproduced on Chrome 69 on Windows 8.1. Gotta have earned a badge, not dismissed the notification, and be looking at your own profile.

  • Reproduced on Electronics and Coffee. Fairly sure it's on all SE sites. Report here.

    @SonictheInclusiveWerehog Please don't remove tags to “ensure space for status tag”. Removing a tag for this reason is not appropriate or necessary and causes harm. Admins are perfectly capable themselves of removing a tag to make room if and when they need to add a status tag, and until that point if a fifth tag is relevant its presence will aid in discovery.

  • Now this is appearing on all of the sites every time I earn a badge Commented Oct 16, 2018 at 2:05
  • @PotatoLatte I think it is common to every site with the new layout. Commented Oct 16, 2018 at 9:11

    This is being reported every other day (and probably equally often on all the individual meta sites). Why is there no reaction at all since weeks? Does this need to be posted on twitter?

    @SonictheInclusiveWerehog “since [sic] weeks” he's saying that there has been no further comments, no update, no other form of communication. I would expect at least a proper answer by a community manager or mod, explaining that the bug will take time to fix. Have you seen the number of times this bug has been reported? See the linked questions column. Commented Oct 20, 2018 at 16:18

    @Mari-LouA Yeah, that's a good point. But it's really not worth being impatient about these things; they usually put it down in their internal bug tracker and get to it when higher-priority issues are taken care of. If you want to try and get them to expedite something, you can follow the tips at How do I get attention for old, unfixed bug reports and feature requests without official responses here on Meta?, but it's up to them to decide what to do.

    Looks like it has been fixed (at least on a couple of sites I've checked, where I had the problem) ...

1 Answer 1


The bug has been fixed somewhere between October 19th 2018 when it was marked as by Catija (see revisions) and October 27th 2018 when Glorfindel said in a comment that it's working fine.
