The "meta" link (and FAQ and chat links) has disappeared from the top navigation bar of Stack Overflow all sites in the network...

enter image description here

I'm feeling quite lost at the moment. Additionally, I could create separate "Missing"/ "Wanted" posts for the FAQ, and Chat links as well, but I think you get the drift...

On the bright side if I'm wrong about where the OT questions on meta come from this might stop them. –  Flexo May 17 '13 at 19:40

To be honest, I'm not 100% sure how I found my way here. No, I'm serious. Really! (was just coming to say something about that!) –  Andrew's a Unitato May 17 '13 at 19:43

All right, what smarty is making code changes on Friday afternoon right around beer-thirty? –  Aaron Bertrand May 17 '13 at 19:45

@Lix - No one cares about the links to chat or faq? No one reads the FAQ –  LBT May 17 '13 at 19:48

@bluefeet Shog has an alibi, he was in ServerFault chat. –  tombull89 May 17 '13 at 19:50

@Oded was the first SE dev to show up here, therefore it's his fault. –  Yannis May 17 '13 at 19:50

@Lix - just because they visited it for the badge doesn't mean that read it ;) –  LBT May 17 '13 at 19:53

Instant rep-cap. Congratulations on all the new unicorn dollars you are receiving for this question. –  Robert Harvey May 17 '13 at 19:55

@RobertHarvey - Are you telling me there are some technical people who use Stack Overflow? –  Oded May 17 '13 at 19:58

Spot the bug:

bool showNormalNavigation = IsMetaSite && !User.IsAnonymous;

Damn you, De Morgan!

Yeah - should be:

bool showNormalNavigation = IsMetaSite || !User.IsAnonymous;

Edit:

And yeah, my fault. Thanks Kevin for fixing!

I should down vote for the error. But then karma would kick my puny little ass, so +1 instead! –  Andrew's a Unitato May 17 '13 at 20:12

+1 Now the world feels right again ;-) –  Martin Turjak May 17 '13 at 20:12

This is simply a meta rep scam! 1) Introduce bool error hiding an often clicked component 2) Wait for meta to blow up 3) Post answer, saving the day 4) Go to 1) –  George W Bush May 17 '13 at 20:28
    
Granted, there is photographic evidence that he writes code using only one hand...that's bound to go wrong some day.... –  Bart May 17 '13 at 20:43

@Bart - If that's the trouble I get into writing with one hand, imagine the trouble I would get into using two... –  Oded May 18 '13 at 8:37
    
@FrankstonRalphingtonIII - You got me. Question is, what are you gonna do about it? –  Oded May 18 '13 at 8:47
    
@Oded I just want in on the scam! –  George W Bush May 18 '13 at 17:45

@FrankstonRalphingtonIII - Step 1: get hired by Stack Exchange. Step 2: Get your hands on the source code. Step 3: Checkin bugs. Step 4: Profit! –  Oded May 18 '13 at 18:17

Still doesn't seem right. On [meta.so] when not logged in I don't see a link to "main". From the expression IsMetaSite || !User.IsAnonymous this doesn't look intentional? –  Martin Smith May 21 '13 at 8:28
    
@MartinSmith - Good catch. I thought it was fixed as I outlined above, but the actual commit was... different. Truly fixed now. –  Oded May 21 '13 at 10:32

The link was drunk, it seems to have wandered back home now. Next time this happens we shall stage an intervention:

Perhaps people think the link was only buzzed, and not drunk? –  enderland May 17 '13 at 20:03
    
Strange thing is: I'm already rep-capped. I can't earn more meta reps from this anyway :P –  Manishearth May 17 '13 at 20:05
