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

Am i the only one who receives this?


P.s. It's not shopped... ^^

It has 87 votes, and the other ads also start with the real vote count and then concatenates what seems to be a random string (but I suspect it's not random)

Edit: Aparently it was the user IDs of the people who posted the ads

At a glance, those strings look to me like times in hhmmss format. – Dominic Rodger Mar 3 '10 at 16:05
@Dominic: I'm curious to know what kind of clock you use. For the format to be hhmmss, you're saying that 14:03:81 is a valid time. :) – Michael Madsen Mar 4 '10 at 17:40
@Michael - excellent point. I was looking at the link balpha posted, where many of the numbers under the ads are valid times. Now I look closer, a whole load aren't. Oops. – Dominic Rodger Mar 4 '10 at 19:03
Those were the user IDs of the people who posted the ads, but it seems to be fixed now. – mmyers Mar 8 '10 at 23:11
@Michael - Dominic must be using decimal time – Andrew Grimm Mar 16 '10 at 6:21
