What is the error today in question.js

I am unable to add comments on the stackoverflow.com website. Is everyone facing javascript issues on the site?

I'm getting "Stackoverflow.questions is null or not an object."

  • No. Try flushing your cache. Also which OS and browser are you running?

  • No repro here, I just made a test comment on a question of mine. Did any of your settings change, or maybe this is only having an issue on a particular question?

  • Perhaps related, but someone else is poking up about question.js. I'm not experiencing any issue on my machine (IE8/XP).

  • Regarding your update, I'm seeing a very similar line in the question.js question I linked earlier. Perhaps you're running into the same issue as that user is.

Make sure you've cleared your cache.


I'm getting the same issue - running on IE6 on Win2003 (yes, I know its old but it a corporate thin client desktop which I cannot upgrade :( ).

It also occurs here on meta. I tried adding this as a comment, but the script error means the "add comment" button is unresponsive. (As are the upvote, favorite etc buttons...)

EDIT: Also fails on IE7 on Win2003. With the same error. I've cleared the cache but to no avail....
