  • Electronic Gadgets

Wow, what a terrible site. ;) – gnostradamus Aug 3 '10 at 20:11
That freehand circle looks like it's actually part of the site. – Pops Aug 3 '10 at 20:15
Looks like a Bézier curve. – Ladybug Killer Aug 3 '10 at 20:17
This has been reported before, by the way; I thought it was [status-completed], though. – Pops Aug 3 '10 at 20:17
@popular: I already asked him about his freehand circles. He says it's because he uses a Mac, so his freehand circles are more smooth. Personally, I think he's a robot trying to infiltrate meta. – devinb Aug 3 '10 at 20:17
@dev: He is obviously cheating. – Ladybug Killer Aug 3 '10 at 20:22
@Popular Last time was isolated to a specific site. This time it appears to be affecting every site, though. – Grace Note Aug 3 '10 at 20:24
@Grace, you have one heck of a memory for MSO posts. I'll just stop searching for that link and take your word for it. – Pops Aug 3 '10 at 20:28
@Popular Looks like it's just a luck factor which determines which sites do and do not get desynced. – Grace Note Aug 3 '10 at 21:14

I reported this on one of the beta meta sites. Per Jeff it is normal behavior immediately after a deployment.

Will go away in 10 minutes.

edit: since this question keeps coming up, I changed the stats so they will say


instead of all zeros. Hopefully that's clearer that the solution is to sit tight and wait 10 minutes.

(although, this could persist longer than 10 minutes if API is down for some catastrophic reason)

didn't you mean 6 to 8 weeks? – alexanderpas Aug 5 '10 at 21:08
