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

This is a bit similar to "criteria on sort-order for tag sets are no longer working: "Oops! Something Bad Happened! "", except this isn't limited to one criteria:

Even a simple filter-tags like java: doesn't display any new questions since 11 hours ago.

Any idea why?

Same thing happening here. Can't get any of my filters to show anything new any more. – jfriend00 Sep 6 '11 at 6:10
@jfriend00 Ok. At least it is not just me ;) Tested on different computer/browsers. – VonC Sep 6 '11 at 6:13

A (technically impossible)* null snuck into the service responsible for aggregating data across all the sites in the Stack Exchange network. It's been cleaned up, and after churning through a few hundred thousand backlogged events we're back in business.

*Spot the operative word. We're checking for the impossible now.

Thank you! It seems to be working just fine now. – VonC Sep 6 '11 at 6:52
