How to reproduce:

  1. Wander aimlessly into some meta site (either, logged on some other site or not logged at all)
  2. Try to upvote/downvote/do something that requires you to be logged in (this will trigger the login or create an account)
  3. Click any login option
  4. ...
  5. ....

What happens?

You get a 404 not found error.

What this silly user thinks should happen?

Either, allow me to login or do not show me the box to login in the first place.

Impact?

All per-site metas.

  • @Oded Meta, per-site meta, all the same to me ;-). Oh well, next time I'll try to read the question properly before closing Commented Dec 10, 2013 at 13:02
  • @MadScientist - details, details. It's not like we are programmers who deal with minute details all the time.

    @Laura when was it fixed? Commented Apr 28, 2014 at 21:49

    @ShadowWizard I'm not sure; probably when we redesigned the signup and login pages. Someone flagged saying that this was no longer a problem, and I poked around for a bit and couldn't repo, so I'm calling it done. I trust that someone will post again if there's an edge case I missed.
