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

If I try going to ("ask question"), I get "Oops! Something Bad Happened!".

We experienced a brief outage on a machine responsible for syncing parent/child accounts (in this case, area51 to discuss); if you got unlucky and needed an account sync during this period viewing a page on any meta (including discuss) was likely to error on you.

This appears to have been fixed, but we're keeping a close eye on it just in case.
