Before the responsive design era all design related bugs that happen only on non-100% scale factor of the page were considered as invalid, i.e. not-a-bug.

Nowadays many SE pages already have responsive versions. Will the design related bug be accepted (marked as a real bug) for such pages, even if the page scale factor is not 100%?

  • As far as I know, responsiveness is meant to handle changing screen size, not zooming while having same screen size. Those are two different things, which likely need different handling in the code. Unless you don't mean zoom? – Shadow The Burning Wizard Apr 22 '19 at 11:01

    @ShadowWizard as far as I see, changing the scale factor (i.e. zoom) change the page layout if responsiveness is available, i.e. page looks responsive for zooming in general. – αλεχολυτ Apr 22 '19 at 11:09
  • Yeah, saw it too now. Still not sure if it's intended, or side effect of whatever mechanism SE use for the responsiveness. – Shadow The Burning Wizard Apr 22 '19 at 11:10

    personal experience: such a bug report is simply ignored (tex.meta.stackexchange.com/a/7850/36296) It seems to not even deserve the not-a-bug tag :( – samcarter Apr 22 '19 at 11:39
  • When the answer is "Yes" will you flood Meta with those bugs? – rene Apr 22 '19 at 13:26
  • @rene it depends on the site's quality I think – αλεχολυτ Apr 22 '19 at 13:56
  • Bug: left navigation text is crossing the line separator on <33%, but who cares... ;) – Meta Andrew T. Apr 22 '19 at 14:37

Since the default font sizes don't work for all of us without some zoom, I sure hope that SE will address bugs for use cases other than "I have 20/20 vision and use my browser full-screen on a big monitor". Accessibility is an important part of inclusion.
