I was looking at my badges here on MSE. It appears to me the silver badge count has a different font-weight / font-size then the bronze badge count and the reputation.

I tried looking at the sites CSS, but I'm no expert at that.

PS. in this screenshot the numbers look cut-off at the top, that's not how it is on my screen...


The answer is no, both are normal:

The size is equal too; 12px (that's somewhere further down the developer tools).

That the bronze one (and the gold one) appear to be bolder than the silver one is an optical illusion, just like the checker shadow illusion (though there are probably better examples).

  • You are indeed right. I zoomed to the highest level at which the badge count is still displayed (190% for me) Then there is no visual difference left. – Luuklag Jul 29 '19 at 10:25
