Says opps instead of oops.


not saying I don't think it is kinda funny, I was just looking at all the stackexchange error messages for some breaktime amusement and noticed it.

    It's also inconsistently capitalised: either upper case the initial "b", or lower case the initial "h". Commented Feb 8, 2011 at 12:07

"OPPS." It's a typo. Also It was meant to be a temporarily place holder image.

Now may be a good opportunity to ask, is it OK if I create the official 404 image from the highest voted answer on the 404 image post? If so, what type setting etc should I use? It'd be great if one of you can show me exactly how it should be presented, so I don't come up with something not authentic.


  • hmmmm. I think that 9 votes does not a selection indicate. Commented Feb 8, 2011 at 17:11
  • @Yossi, I'm definitely open for suggestions. Feel free to post new ideas in the 404 image thread.

  • @Jin: I am not saying I have a better idea...but the problem is that there are no temporary solutions....it's very difficult to rally the community to change a temporary one...better to wait (I think) until a good solution arrives (like the issue with choosing a domain).

  • @Yossi sure, understandable. Meanwhile I can correct the typo, and maybe put in a new temporary one. (since the current one out there doesn't really fit the overall design theme of the site).
