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

Since half an hour or so, Meta SO (not reproducable on other SE sites) seem to have lost their header and footer part, i.e. all sites are rendered as

<div id="mainbar" class="ask-mainbar">

being the first line of This applies to all pages.

Is that just me?

@Oded I think you missed an exclamation mark out... – James Oct 22 '13 at 11:16
Sorry @Oded; while your answer is technically correct, and this is technically not even an answer, I'll still have to accept this as the correct answer! – nijansen Oct 22 '13 at 11:34

Something went wonky on the latest build - we are looking into it.

For some reason the master page template didn't render.

Good thing I remembered the URL to the questions page; you probably would never have found out about this bug if I didn't ask this question ;-) – nijansen Oct 22 '13 at 11:03
@nijansen - Yeah, it isn't like I am on Meta all day long. Oh... wait. – Oded Oct 22 '13 at 11:03
