I've noticed something weird with the HNQ icons:

How is the "load average" interpreted in "top" output? Is it the same for all distributions?

Now, while the question is on the "Unix and Linux".SE, that icon is actually for "User Experience".SE.

This is just a random sample, but about half of the HNQ has icons swapped (not necessarily with other websites listed in HNQ, and not necessarily in any pattern of swapping).

  • That's not the icon I see... They seem to be correct for me.

  • @Catija It's random, for example, after refreshing it a couple times, now I get the Workplace.SE icon on that HNQ.

    I'm experiencing it too, as I reported in meta.stats; meta.stats.stackexchange.com/questions/4268/… At first it seemed to happen only there, but then I noticed it also happened in other sites of the SE network too.

We have a race condition where when we update the favicon sprite map (which happened earlier today for a new private beta launch), depending on which web server you're hitting, you could end up with new cachebreakers and old images if you visit a site during a prod build.

I'll ask around tomorrow to see what, if anything, we can do about that. AFAIK this didn't used to be a thing, but it seems to be happening pretty reliably to folks with every site we launch now.

  • Appears to have been solved today, I'm not seeing it anymore.
