Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am getting an error message when I click on the question Copy code from Stackoverflow posts on meta. I am able to navigate to other questions on meta without any issues.

I'm told devs are looking into it. It was migrated from SO; I'm guessing something went wrong with that – Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '11 at 5:03
The actual error is "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" – Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '11 at 5:04
@MichaelMrozek It's a duplicate too, meh. – Tim Stone Aug 3 '11 at 5:06
@Tim If only we could close it :). Maybe it's a defense mechanism – Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '11 at 5:07
@MichaelMrozek I like to think of it as the system auto-closing the question for us, by making it inaccessible to everyone. – Tim Stone Aug 3 '11 at 5:08
Also, searching for "Copy code stackoverflow" causes the 500 on the results page. The plot thickens... – Soumya Aug 3 '11 at 5:08
@Michael: Is it possible for a question to have 1 view and 1 answer? I thought the first view of the question is by OP when they submit the question. In the first screenshot, it shows 1 view and 1 answer. There were no answers on SO. Just curious. – user162697 Aug 3 '11 at 5:22
@Siva The view counting is pretty weird, and the question list is cached anyway, so it can show old data. Between those two anything can happen – Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '11 at 5:28

A bug was introduced in the anonymous gravatar render - it's been fixed.
