Odd Display Bug?

Anyone else see a weird display bug with this comment? In both IE and Firefox, the "posted by" line (and only the posted by line) for that comment (and only that comment) is not indented at all. I'm not familiar with the Metafilter code, but when I view source it looks like all the rest of the comments.

Member count error on the front page.

Am I the only one who sees "Connection Timeout" in the place where the number of members should be listed on the front page of MeFi?

Can't add favorites.

"Request is malformed: can't add as a favorite." That's what I get when I try to add a favorite.

My Comments page is missing all of the carriage returns.

Bug: Cold Fusion Error in AskMe

CSS fix for horizontal scrollbar

I'd like to submit a bug-fix to MetaFilter default.css stylesheet. It fixes the Mozilla/Firefox page rendering (on Windows) so that it no longer generates an annoying horizontal scrollbar. After much tinkering, it appears to be fixed by the following small change to the stylesheet:

.tinydatetime {

font-size: 10px;
font-family: verdana, sans-serif;
font-weight: bold;
color: black;
padding-left:5px; < ------ change to b>margin-left:5px;
padding-right:5px; < ------ change to b>margin-rightt:5px;
}

It needs testing on non-Windows platforms however.

An archive-status related bug

I'm assuming it's related to this, but when I'm not logged in, each thread in the blue ends with the "This thread is archived and is closed to new comments" message, instead of the "Register or login to comment" message.

Adding tags to my old thread caused a mess.

I made my old thread unhappy when adding tags. Not sure how that happened.

Problem with MeFi displaying really large text.

In Windows XP version 2002, using either Mozilla 1.1 or IE6, renders Metafilter with really big letters that make reading the site difficult. Anyone got any solutions?

Blank page bug

What ... Just ... Happened?

I came here a few minutes ago and there was nothing but a big white space and a line that said that the URL didn't exist.

It was scary.

You used to be able to leave this blank.
