When I'm on the meta site and view my achievements drop down at the head of the page:

screenshot of dropdown

The links contain relative URLs.

<a href="/questions/..."> ... </a>

This causes them all to point to Meta Stack Overflow (since this is the only place the new top-bar is implemented). Even achievements on other Stack Exchange sites.

    It appears to construct the links like http://currentsite/link-to-the-question-or-answer, so cross-domain links break and it takes you to the question/answer with the same ID on the current site (MSO in this case) – 3ventic Nov 27 '13 at 12:00

    Few of the links lead to Page Not Found and few take me to random pages which I've never even seen. This bug needs to be fixed ASAP. – RainMaker Nov 27 '13 at 12:07

    That behavior is new. This morning I used it, and it worked. – Johannes Kuhn Nov 27 '13 at 12:09
  • @R.J - "Page Not Found" will come when post Id doesn't exist on MSO or redirect to the MSO post with that post Id. – Himanshu Jansari Nov 27 '13 at 12:12

    Worth to mention that the inbox links are OK. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Nov 27 '13 at 12:13

    Just kidding - fixed ;) – Oded Nov 27 '13 at 12:19

Some code moved around, when the achievements dropdown was reworked, and the linking to the correct site was mistakenly dropped.

Fixed and built out.
