Once a question has received more than 999 votes and it appears in the main page, aka the home page, the number of votes doesn't seem to fit into the square.

The Hidden Features of C# has now received 1048 when I wrote this.

I am using Firefox 3.5.7 (so it shouldn't be some fringe case)

  • The elements ('div.votes div.mini-counts') of those pages can only hold up to 3 digits, anything more will be cropped at the right edge. i.e. 999 fits, 1111 don't. – o.k.w Feb 19 '10 at 4:54
  • I noticed it on the same topic, was gonna report it but it's already done. :) – Daan Mar 8 '10 at 22:11

This now follows the same rules as views, and will be deployed later today.


All we need is 49 people to downvote that question

    And then we'd have another status-completed – juan Feb 19 '10 at 17:55

I couldn't edit post so here's the screenshot taken from Chrome, numbers are hacked in of course:

Vote Overflow

Should it be showing 1K or 1.1K instead?

    According to the style established with kviews, it probably ought to be kvotes and a style change. – D_N Mar 2 '10 at 5:20

Quick fix:

.mini-counts {
    margin-left: -4px;
    letter-spacing: -2px;

Report back when it overflows 9999, then I'll think about it once again.


It's doing the same here on both Safari and Firefox.

An alternative to displaying "1.1k" would be changing font-size.

Not good:

(150% for the font size size)

    I apologize for the lack of freehand circles – marcgg Feb 19 '10 at 17:47
