Certain badge pages only allow a maximum width for a username + badges, and since we have some users who choose to use ridiculously long and impossible to spell usernames, this causes truncation of badge counts:

This seems to be unique to the dba.SE CSS, as the main site's equivalent page does not show this truncation.

Still seems to truncate things weirdly, e.g. on this page Concerned's name is truncated (there is more than one well in Tunbridge) and the to seems to unnecessarily word wrap (there is a ton of white space available to the right):

    Seems to me the only real answer is to downvote all the answers from those posters to prevent truncation.

  • Thanks @Jon, I hadn't seen that one, and a spot check of a few badge pages on SO (including Convention) did not reveal similar behavior. I see ample spacing between the columns, but perhaps that has to do with filling a page (which the above tag doesn't do yet).

This has been fixed by badges changes of some months ago:

  • Please see my update, still some weird truncation on some pages.

  • User info cards have a fixed width and are truncated by design. I don't think we will fix this.
