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

I cleaned up this and a bunch of other places where this was happening today.

Essentially I was being a bit to greedy with my route matching, I went through the routes and changed it so when we expect a number we will only match to a number.

So, for example we had a few routes like so:

[Route(@"{sitename}/qte/{savedQueryId}/{slug?}", RoutePriority.Low)]

Which I rewrote to:

[Route(@"{sitename}/qte/{savedQueryId:\d+}/{slug?}", RoutePriority.Low)]

Additionally I sprinkled a few PageNotFounds in some strategic places.
