    The status popup window can't handle point awards larger than 999- they word wrap.
    I'm on a laptop, WinXP, 1440 x 900 px display, Firefox

    Note how 1500 and 2950 word wrapped.

    That's what beta is all about, he's doing his job admirably.
    Admiral JALPak is his new title.

    Does the status roll over to -1 after crossing something like 65535? :p

    Well that explains a few things… but leaves more questions, like how he managed to go from 5000 likes earlier today to 10,000 this evening [​IMG]

    Same here… when I could see it earlier today ;)

    I hope they are using at least a 64 bit unsigned int :eek:

    There's only one way to find out - Like me! :p

    I think we should have a competition: the person who abuses MP the most during the beta period gets banned [​IMG]

    Or the ones who stressed tested the system and the abuse detection system should be awarded with a high level status :D

    Or, even more amusingly, have them just reset everyone in two weeks...

    "Thanks for testing the system, guys. Everyone who participated during the beta gets to be an original member, but we'll reset everything else..."

    I think that includes a special award, a trip in Randy's RV.

    The issue still hasn't been fixed. Even when I display the status page as a full browser size stand alone page, 4 digit point awards still word-wrap.

    That is odd as I too am running FF (3.6.13) on Windows XP, but 1920 x 1200 reslution and I do not see this wrap.

    I see it in both FF 3.6 on the laptop, 1440 x 900, and FF 4.0 on the desktop machine 1600 x 1200. Both running WinXP

    In each case, I see it in both the popup and when I right click the status number and select to display it in a new tab or window.

    I have seen odd wrap issues on wikis I participate in wrt font sizes -- what happens if you drop the resolution down?

    Wondering if it is the chosen resolution ... worth a try maybe.

    I think I have found what is causing this for you. It is likely font zooming, try going into "View" > "Zoom" and select "Reset" in FireFox. Does that fix it for you?

    yup, that's it. Of course, when I do that, the standard text becomes almost too small and pale to read...
