111

On mobile web (Chrome 75.0 for Android), a post reaching a score of -1,097 sees its score overlapping the vote arrow:

bug on mobile web

This should probably read -1.1k, like the post above (positively upvoted).

    It is obvious they didn't design for this .... – rene Oct 6 '19 at 7:24

    There's a lot of bugs as well on on the mobile-web as in the mobile-app. I don't think they maintain or develop it anymore. There hasn't been updates for ages. – shiny-metal Oct 6 '19 at 10:58

    What’s the point of the arrow anyway? I don’t have it, and the score therefore displays correctly. – Alex Oct 6 '19 at 13:15

    They will fix that. But when they reach -10,000, it will break again. – Victor Stafusa Oct 6 '19 at 18:07

    Just wait til it gets -2147483649 votes. That's when things start to get real interesting. – Lundin Oct 16 '19 at 11:54

    Negative 1k is an exceptionally abnormal case. I suggest to keep it as is. Positive 1k is normal. – Ṃųỻịgǻňạcểơửṩ Jan 16 '20 at 5:32

    @Ṃųỻịgǻňạcểơửṩ just because it's uncommon doesn't mean they should let a display bug remain. – JakeRobb Aug 17 '20 at 20:25

    @Lundin using floats at that point might help, and if it ever hits the float limit it is either extremely far into the future (and by then there is probably a better solution) or SE has a really massive bot problem – Ekadh Singh Apr 15 at 13:34
  • @Yay Yeah lets use floating points for votes +1.0000001 :) – Lundin Apr 15 at 13:36
  • @Lundin or +1.0 – Ekadh Singh Apr 15 at 13:37

    -1.2k would still be rather close to overlapping – Kevin B Jun 8 at 21:33
