Top navigation is too wide to fit #632
Currently the top navbar looks like this to me, since I reached a triple-digit karma:
Which is rather sub-optimal. The right part of the navbar gets pushed down as it's too wide.
I'm not sure what the best way to fix this is, but one way would be to shorten "Submit story" to "Submit", and "Your Threads to "Threads", possibly with a tooltip to read the full text?
This should give plenty of space, even for people with longer usernames.
What device and browser are you using? I'm asking both because it makes confirming platform issues easier but also to ask "can you make the window wider?"
I get the same behavior (a break in the top navigation regardless of window width) on the newest stories page.
I'm using Firefox on Linux (Arch).
It doesn't really depend on the window width, as the container has a maximum width. Here's a full-screen screenshot:
The reason you get it on "Newest stories" is because it has the longer "Newest Stories" instead of "Lobsters" on the top-left. Shortening that to "Newest" combined with my previous proposals would fix that.
I actually don't get the break with most pages, as those have the shorter "Home" instead of "Lobsters" in the top-left, which shortens the entire thing just enough to fit. However, if I add just one character to my username in the web inspector it doesn't fit again.
