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 not able to resolve (Firefox gives me a 404, as does Chrome).
However, resolves fine.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

For the record, all of this is a contest campaign for Microsoft Windows 8, launched by Stack Exchange as explained here.

TIL Microsoft uses domain hacks. – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 11 '12 at 16:51
juergen, the ad was pointing to a non working url (since it had the www, and it was not working this morning) lix and shawn, the site was technically up, since it was giving a 404 error, so your tool is useless in this case. – Marcelo Origoni Oct 11 '12 at 19:53

Alright; the server responds to www. now (and redirects to the correct domain).

Please let us know where you saw that link to the wrong domain, so we can fix that. Thanks!

I suspect someone saw the URL, manually entered it and assumed it needed or could use www – Ben Brocka Oct 11 '12 at 15:26
It wasn't working this morning, it is working now. No I didn't entered the www manually, and the add had the "wrong" url. I did some googling, and found it was working with out the www – Marcelo Origoni Oct 11 '12 at 19:49
@MarceloOrigoni Okay then, thanks for the report! – balpha Oct 11 '12 at 19:54
