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

When all's said and done today, could you post a gallery of all the animations. Even as much as I'll be voting today, I'd love to make sure I get to see all of them!

oh my God—it's full of Unicorns! – Chris O Apr 1 '11 at 12:15
These unicorns look a lot like my Chrono Trigger suggestion! It's finally happening! I am Stack Overflow! – JSONBog Apr 1 '11 at 13:27
@Killbog, no, Stack Overflow is you. There's a subtle difference. – Pops Apr 1 '11 at 14:26
Stack Overflow is YOU? – Rob Hruska Apr 1 '11 at 14:44

@badp, cool, I didn't realize that could be done. – YOU Apr 1 '11 at 15:36
Nice, @YOU, thanks for fixing the image rot within SE itself ;-) – Arjan Apr 21 '11 at 7:52

Maybe we will.

When the last eagle flies over the last crumbling mountain... ...and the last lion roars at the last dusty fountain...

Unrelated to the above, I know, but still curious: any chance being over quota has been caused by other sites using it for some April 1st jokes too? – Arjan Apr 1 '11 at 13:09
@Arjan: Yep. And they still haven't noticed that it hasn't been serving images for hours :) – balpha Apr 1 '11 at 13:19
320 images/second — nice :-) – Arjan Apr 1 '11 at 13:20
Awesome. I'll be watching for the last eagle to land! – squillman Apr 1 '11 at 14:34

I wish for no gallery, but unicorns at random appearances for the whole year. Forget badges!

In retrospect, I can see I just meant back then "for gamification, forget scores and let's all just have fun instead". forgetBadges = (seize the day | carped diem | yolo | etc) :) – cregox Jan 18 at 1:39
