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'?

    But this is a GIF of a fox finding exactly what it was hunting for. Not really suited to a 404. Commented Nov 22, 2014 at 0:43

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:

  • This is more fitting for general error page, not 404 error page. Commented Apr 5, 2015 at 20:57

    @ShadowWizard Yes. The question says: "Is there a better image in the works to replace the somewhat bland '404' and 'oops'?" Commented Apr 5, 2015 at 21:00
