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

Super User seems to be erroring intermittently, giving me a blank page of questions, and David reported something similar:


Subir has reported something similar in Tavern occurring on English Language Learners and Travel Answers.

I also see the tag as empty:

0 qs

On the FAQ tab, it's showing up with 0 total questions and 2 featured questions, which proves it's a bug rather than a burninated tag:

2 questions

However, it seems to display fine when logged out.

(Moved from Kitty appears when viewing Schedule tab of chat room info since it doesn't seem to be related.)

Happening on JLU too. – Troyen Feb 9 '13 at 2:45
@animuson Is it perhaps related to a deploy? – Troyen Feb 9 '13 at 2:50
It got worse. I'm seeing this on all the non-SO sites' front pages now, including metas ( – Mechanical snail Feb 9 '13 at 2:50
@Troyen: Eh, they probably pushed a change that broke the questions cache. Eventually, all lists on all sites should exhibit the same symptoms of having empty lists as the caches continue to attempt reloading and break. – animuson Feb 9 '13 at 2:52
And here on ELU. – tchrist Feb 9 '13 at 3:02
Sorry about that. I was trying to see if I can create a duplicate circle here, and apparently the answer is yes. This post was at 4/5 duplicate of the other post when the other post was closed. Of course I can't cast the last dupe vote since the other question is already closed, but I could cast a "Too Localized" vote, and the result of that (because majority wins) is that now these two questions are closed as duplicates of each other – Yi Jiang Feb 9 '13 at 5:39
@TimYiJiang: WAT – Mechanical snail Feb 9 '13 at 6:41

This was transient during the migration between data centers.
