Just today, it looks like someone broke the site's sidebar by including one continuous and long word that the site is unable to break. While funny, this could become a problem for usability since it seems like just the one post could make the site look wonky for everybody, not to mention it also seems like posts can stay on status.cafe's front page for like, 9 months if I have that right.

This can be fixed by just adding this CSS:

.status-content {
  word-break: break-word;
}

You can also totally cause this to occur on this forum!

Speaking about posts staying on the front page for a long time, I think it's a good idea to add pagination.

oh yea I noticed this too. it´s even more squished for me lol. Only one emote row. (because smaller screen ig). Well.. I´ll just fix that using my custom stylus style for this site in the meantime. :P
