Today I noticed that top bar's search box width was increased. It's a good news! But I can't understand why it's not increased even more. In particular, the right offset could be minimized as done for the left part of search box:



  • In one word: diamond. (That's where the mod diamond menu is located, as far as I know) – Shadow Wizard Dec 24 '18 at 14:29

    @ShadowWizard why the rest of the world should suffer because of the handful of diamond owners? – αλεχολυτ Dec 24 '18 at 14:41

    Because having two sets of design (one for mods and one for non mods) means double development time, double money spent, etc. I prefer that money to go on developing single design, with a small unused space, that would be good and without bugs. – Shadow Wizard Dec 24 '18 at 14:42

    @ShadowWizard pf-f-f ... what about one, but adaptive design? Do they know about it? – αλεχολυτ Dec 24 '18 at 14:45

    @ShadowWizard 1. As a frontend developer I'd like to say that you are wrong about need in two versions of desing for that. 2. As a moderator on ruSO I'd like to say that you are wrong about this place and it's not used for diamond: i.stack.imgur.com/DyclO.png – Qwertiy Dec 24 '18 at 21:37
  • @Qwertiy as for #2 try with small screen (full site, responsive design) and pretty sure diamond will take all the space. – Shadow Wizard Dec 24 '18 at 22:05
  • @ShadowWizard, nope, updated my answer. – Qwertiy Dec 24 '18 at 22:24

This style is made by

.top-bar .-secondary {
    padding: 0;
    padding-left: 48px;

And it is not used for any purpose including moderator notifications as far as I can tell:


And on the smaller screen:

non mod
