What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 140 Stack Exchange communities.

I just noticed that questions appear multiple times in my tag filter on stackexchange.com: enter image description here

Nothing against four times Jon Skeet in a row, but this seems to be a bug in the tag filter, as these questions only appear one time on the SE sites themselves. It seems to only affect newer questions, the older questions are unaffected in the same tag filter.

We had a slight mishap over the weekend. A service that's responsible for aggregating activity across the Stack Exchange network (providing the lion's share of the data SE.com displays) got spun up twice.

This lead to a dueling banjos sort of affair where lots of content got "double aggregated" (technical N-aggregated, as you can see in your screenshot). The affects have been cleaned up, and I'm working on making the service a tad more robust in the face of this sort of failure.
