Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I was browsing on So when I noticed something odd. The "featured" tab that contains all the questions with bountys on them displayed its counter at 0. I tried reloading the page to check if it was just a caching error, but the problem recurred. When I then clicked on the "Questions" tab, the features bar loaded properly.

I tried closing my browser and going back to So and the problem happened again. Its relatively minor bug, but I thought it was worth noting. I've included photos of both the broken counter and working counter.

Norepro, sorry. – Emrakul Nov 9 '13 at 4:09
So then it must be a local problem? I was able to reproduce it every time I went back to So. – Wold Nov 9 '13 at 4:10
Maybe try clearing your cache? – Emrakul Nov 9 '13 at 4:11
Seemed to be a cache problem, but why would it happen in the first place? – Wold Nov 9 '13 at 4:15
Perhaps it was using the last updated number, but fetching that number failed. Iunno, though. I'm not an official source of info for such things. – Emrakul Nov 9 '13 at 4:48
@Emrakul, well thanks for the input, I appreciate it. It really is a minor bug and the problem seemed to be momentary, but thought I'd mention it. – Wold Nov 9 '13 at 7:13
I've seen this happen a number of times. Right now, Japanese Language.SE is oscillating between 0 and 1, although the sole bounty is now roughly a day old. (It shows as "0 featured" most of the time, but I see "1 featured" sometimes. This inconsistency may be why the bug is incorrectly marked as "norepro".) – snailboat Jan 2 '14 at 21:16
