The line with the bronze badges is getting clipped if it is too long. The HTML code of the website contains the full number "322" which is clipped here to "32". If you look closely to the displayed "2" you see that it gets a little clipped as well. The CSS settings used to style each site is different from SX site to SX site, so e.g. SO seems to not be ...

I think there are enough differences between classes and packages that separate tags are useful. So adding the relevant extra tags to particular questions would make more sense than merging the two tags.

I think the motivation behind this is to make you upvote questions more in general, just like the Electorate badge encourages upvoting of questions. Giving you a counter that tells you "I've already upvoted enough questions, so now I can upvote answers" would be beside the point here.

This is very valuable, and it's one of the things that make Stack Exchange sites more useful than forums or mailing lists for Q&A (I'm speaking from a Q&A perspective ...

My suggestion is to invite this person to a personal chat (albeit public) where you can hash out some ideas and/or exchange details, since similar requests have been declined in the past. This way you're guaranteed to connect to the specific individual (if they have a chat account) rather than waiting for them to enter the main chat area, or via a comment to ...

As of this answer, that includes: Firefox 9.0 Firefox 8.0 3.5.16 is quite a bit out of date, we won't fix bugs related to it. For more info: the community maintains a supported browser list here: Which ...

While I totally acknowledge that truncating the user info card is not optimal, we have to adapt it to many different designs. It is a common assumption in our design that this card has a fixed width: hence, the overflow: hidden.

If you think that package-writing and documentclass-writing are similar enough to be merged into a new class-package-writing tag (named as suggested by doncherry), vote up this answer. If you think two separate tags are better, vote up Alan Munn's answer.
