I see the waffles 404 page didn't survive the migration. The current image is the default for beta sites. Is there a better image in the works to replace the somewhat bland '404' and 'oops'?

  • Waffles is still on mSO. :( – hichris123 Apr 20 '14 at 15:33

Please, oh please, FOR THE LOVE OF META! Use this as a 404:

    But this is a GIF of a fox finding exactly what it was hunting for. Not really suited to a 404. – SevenSidedDie Nov 22 '14 at 0:43

    @Mooseman I stand corrected! That is a winning caption. – SevenSidedDie Nov 22 '14 at 18:30

I agree that the MSE 404 page remains bland, and while I do miss the waffles, I propose the following in their place:

There is also a slightly larger version. I am unable to determine the origin of this particular GIF for attribution.

I believe Beaker is worthy of carrying the waffle torch.

This is what the Russian Stack Overflow "oops page" is doing:

A kitty would be nice.

  • This is more fitting for general error page, not 404 error page. – ShaWiz Apr 5 '15 at 20:57

    @ShadowWizard Yes. The question says: "Is there a better image in the works to replace the somewhat bland '404' and 'oops'?" – ʇolɐǝz ǝɥʇ qoq Apr 5 '15 at 21:00
