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

The type as you search for Area 51 has a nice little quirk and at 51 characters it sends you to a blank page. Not sure if this is intentional or not (meant to be funny, maybe?).

Definitely meant to be funny. Nice catch :) – TCPMAN.EXE Feb 24 '11 at 20:36

This is fixed now. There was a bug in our trim-and-append-ellipsis method for one-word queries over 50 characters long.

Ah, young padawan, you have much to learn. If you have a 51-character bug on a site called Area 51, it's a feature. Even if it's unplanned. – mmyers Feb 28 '11 at 17:10
