Date Font Bug

Small bug - font size for dates in the blue and the green (main and ask) are smaller than the font size for the dates in the teal and the gray (projects and metatalk).

Frankly, I can't see the difference you're talking about.

The sizes all look the same on my end. Is it possible that you have your local browser font size zoomed either in or out on a couple of the sites, but not all of them? Are you running Stylish or any Greasemonkey extensions that could be changing the display? And have you tried checking it out in another browser? If you're seeing it one browser and not another it might be related to your browser settings/extensions.

I see it exactly as plinth describes. It in no way bothers me however.

It is not a zooming issue. I see different sizes in Chrome on linux FWIW.

ah ok, I misunderstood. I thought your Small bug was about small text and you were talking about bylines.

Yeah, the dateheaders are different for the different subsites. We don't have a standard style across all the sites. So it could be a conscious choice to be different, or it could be an oversight. We'll discuss it.

Yep, just an oversight. They should be matching now.

Font Bug isn't really my type, sorry.

Yay! The date displays were bothering me, and I was almost to the point of emailing, but this solved it for me. (For the record I wasn't bothered by size, I was bothered by the datestamp not including the year on comments in older threads.) This is now fixed, and I don't have to wonder when a thread happened if someone links to a comment in the middle of a thread from three years ago.
