When I try to bring down the Achievements tab in Area 51, it's showing an error dialogue.

Strangely enough, the global inbox dropdown works just fine.

Could be connected to this issue.

An error occurred while loading - please try again.

  • Does the achievements dropdown work here on Meta for you? – Adam Lear Apr 19 '17 at 16:43
  • Is the Linked section is not working? since there is MSE question is linked, the Linked section is not displaying. – Arulkumar Apr 19 '17 at 17:47
  • @AdamLear Yes, I checked just now, – Nissa Apr 19 '17 at 22:48
  • @Adam and it's still not working, almost a month later. (my guess is SSL broke it) – ShaWiz May 11 '17 at 10:25
  • @ShadowWizard You think every bug is due to SSL... ;) – Adam Lear May 15 '17 at 19:34

    @Adam well, SSL is the new caching, isn't it? ;) – ShaWiz May 15 '17 at 19:35

Area 51 fetches all topbar dialogs from Q&A sites through a private API. Some refactoring was done in A51 code recently that replaced old-school string.Format calls to construct the API URL with interpolated strings... a stray closing parenthesis snuck into the URL at that point, so naturally nothing worked.

The commit message said "HTTPS and area51.meta.stackexchange.com move", so I have to give this one to Shadow Wizard and blame SSL on the purest of technicalities. ;)
