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

Is offline for a data refresh, or is it dead?

so it does. Shame there is not a 302 redirect from the old site. Most of the links in the meta are probably out of date now! – Codemwnci Dec 12 '10 at 11:48
Live data, awesome! – Uphill Luge Dec 12 '10 at 15:11
Just to confirm this is not some temporary thing: the links in the footers have dropped the leading "o" too. – Arjan Dec 12 '10 at 16:08
@Arjan, you're right, it is behind by a day or two. Well past the last data dump, this must have been fed from the main dbase. I reckon the About page was just copied from odata. A couple of days will tell, maybe even a blog post :) – Uphill Luge Dec 12 '10 at 16:41
@Hans, I guess you might just have been lucky to look at the site soon after a new import? Today its most recent column still shows the same dates as a week ago (being December 3rd up to 8th). To be continued ;-) – Arjan Dec 19 '10 at 16:30
Ah, @Hans, now I am sure. According to the FAQ: At the moment it is updated shortly after every Stack Exchange Creative Commons Data Dump. Indeed, no changes in the dates since December 12th. – Arjan Jan 8 '11 at 16:38

There was a missing redirect, the old urls to should redirect permanently to

This was part of a big migration off Azure.

Do we get full-text indexes on the post bodies now? :) – Jon Seigel Dec 13 '10 at 2:54
@Jon, sure ... it just that this proc needs to be amended :) – waffles Dec 13 '10 at 2:57
Is that a hint? ;) Come to think of it, I could add a PostTypes table while I'm at it. – Jon Seigel Dec 13 '10 at 3:01
@Jon ... it sure is :) it would be nice to see some awesome contributions to poor old SEDE – waffles Dec 13 '10 at 3:03
Argh... I don't have VS2010 at home. I will see what I can do with that SQL script, though. – Jon Seigel Dec 13 '10 at 3:15
Note on OData: maybe work in progress, and I'm not using/don't know OData endpoints, but I wonder if the FAQ is still correct? It claims "Yes, on the front page there are links to the OData endpoints" and I do see things like <link rel="odata.service" title="StackOverflow" href="/stackoverflow/atom"/> in the HTML. Maybe things like are not supposed to work with a GET from a plain browser? I kind of doubt that though. – Arjan Dec 13 '10 at 12:03
yeah @Arjan ... I commented out odata for now ... it has been producing YSODs – waffles Dec 13 '10 at 12:22
