I have found a bug on Area 51. When we make heading like #Hello, visible as:


on our profile description, if the text is long then it is going outside its boundry.

It is shown here:

Bug on Area 51

And it is also shown in profile page when saved:

Bug on Area 51

And, the page is scroll-able:

(Posted here too because this question on Meta.Area51 didn't received enough attention)

  • Why would anyone want to write such a long series of unbroken text in their profile in the first place? Does it serve a useful purpose? (I recently gave the same comment on a now-deleted post on a similar topic.) If there is a good reason for such a thing, even in an obscure case, then it should be addressed. But is there? The only thing I can think of that would be long enough to trigger the issue is a URL. But URLs can be provided in shorter linked text. – Jason Bassford Dec 1 '18 at 6:42
  • It's because you are posting from moon. Area 51 is yet to get an update on the Earth. Next build on Moon. – Nog Shine Dec 1 '18 at 6:52
  • There was a similar report at meta.stackexchange.com/questions/319071/…, but it’s deleted now. – Sebastian Simon Dec 1 '18 at 8:48
  • You might want to update the post and include that it's a general issue, and not just area51-specific – Olivia Dec 7 '18 at 18:31
  • This also happens if the URL on the profile is too long. Except it's the bio itself that gets smaller instead of the right bar getting pushed – Olivia Dec 14 '18 at 13:58
