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

Yay! It works now (for me)...I just kept clicking through the links, and eventually it worked...I feel like a crazy person. But, apparently at least on other is seeing this behavior.

They just take you to a generic error page.

The following is the link to the top voted on-topic question, it is broken for me:

How do I delete my account?

Also, the tab to go look at the discussion phase is also broken.

Update: I switched browsers to Internet Explorer. I had never been to Area 51 in IE. The links worked while I was not logged in, but after I logged in, they broke in IE as well.

It works logged out in chrome, and then breaks again when I log back in.

[status-norepro] for me. – John Rudy Jun 14 '10 at 20:30
@Dr. Gonzo, does this link work? – jjnguy Jun 14 '10 at 20:33
@jinguy: Yep. Takes me to "How do I delete my <social network> account?" Has 31 votes as of right now. – John Rudy Jun 14 '10 at 20:37
@Dr. Gonzo, Hmm, that's odd. I get a picture of a cat using a toy computer... – jjnguy Jun 14 '10 at 20:38
@jinguy: Clear your cache and reload, maybe? – John Rudy Jun 14 '10 at 20:44
@Dr. Gonzo It must be some other issue. It worked in IE when I wasn't logged in, but then broke again after I logged in. – jjnguy Jun 14 '10 at 20:48
Another "works for me" here too. – ChrisF Jun 14 '10 at 20:56
Works here too. It's Monday. You must need to go home now. – squillman Jun 14 '10 at 21:04
It doesn't work for me, I just get the cat. – Lance Roberts Jun 14 '10 at 21:14
@Lance, hahaha. Feel my pain... – jjnguy Jun 14 '10 at 21:17
The cat says it's his fault. – Lance Roberts Jun 14 '10 at 21:30
Now reopened. I'm going to clean up my comments in here. – Jon Seigel Jun 22 '10 at 2:52

You're not crazy! To repro this crash you must have

  1. followed the proposal
  2. committed to the proposal
  3. sorted the example questions by "my votes"

That said, it should be fixed now, so hopefully you can't repro it any more.

Thanks @jjinguy, and also thanks to the ~3 other people who triggered the crash, which made it easier to spot the pattern in the error log.

Oh, so when I went to a site that hadn't been to proposal yet, and changed the sort order of the questions, I fixed it for myself? – jjnguy Jun 14 '10 at 22:18
Yea, it's likely that it stopped crashing after you changed the sort order while viewing a different proposal. – Emmett Jun 15 '10 at 17:58
