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

My age is correctly reported on my SO profile but on my main Stack Exchange profile page I appear to have aged somewhat. (Or perhaps it's a homage to Douglas Adams.)

Anyone else suffering from this, or am I just stuck twixt dimensions, doomed to forever roam the badlands with an indeterminate age?

You need to make use of those two Amys. Or the Rorys. Your choice. – random Mar 23 '11 at 22:28

Wow... I must have looked at that page 200 times, and for some reason never once noticed that everyone was 42 -_-

We were using 42 as the age placeholder while designing the page, and completely forgot to eventually replace it with the real value. Thanks for the report — you're 37 again :)

+infinity for using 42 as the placeholder value. – sepp2k Mar 23 '11 at 23:37
thankfully, i used 42 instead of 69, or this would have been even more embarrassing – Emmett Mar 23 '11 at 23:40
+1 for the hilarity and confession... =) – David Thomas Mar 23 '11 at 23:55
Thanks for the update - I feel whole again. ;-) – middaparka Mar 24 '11 at 7:40
