This site's 404 not found image is not unique. It's shared with Cross Validated.


It's entirely possible that this is intentional, but since most sites don't have the same image, I thought it was reasonable to suspect that it was a bug.

Sister bug report:
on Meta Cross Validated

  • Interestingly creating a CrossValidated account (to tell them that this isn't a bug) gave me 100 free rep on the TeX site (saying that I associated my Area 51 account).

  • not all sites' 404/captcha/error images are unique, although I'd like them to be. I re-use those that I think are appropriate. For now, I think the Stats ones work OK with the Tex site. Also see @Stefan's answer below.

  • @Caramdir, yeah, the associations can be a bit wonky, there's been discussion on MSO about that.

  • @Jin, okay, I didn't know if it was by design. I saw one dupe, and thought it might just have been an oversight, but then I found more....

The 404 image is not yet decided and designed, have a look at 404/CAPTCHA/Error images.
