Meta SE better not have the same favicon as Chat SE or my bookmarks are going to get really confusing.
 
I'd think that the MSE favicon would be a greyed Stack Exchange bubble
 
not likely
 
@animuson It probably has the same favicon as stackexchange.com
 
There you go
 
12:03 AM
meta is gone
 
OH NO
 
HALP!

IT IS HAPPENING
 
12:04 AM
We're starting the MSO/MSE split: http://meta.stackoverflow.com will be down for a while.
 
At least it's not 6-8 whiles.
 
Area 51 redirect?
 
Who said this was a good idea?
 
Anonymous
The original site is back.
 
12:04 AM
K I keep getting repinged with the same thing in the gaming chat
Is this because of the split
 
IT'S HAPPENING
 
like every 5 seconds I get a ping
 
I'm not too late
 
Is the chat going down too?
 
12:05 AM
Soon™
 
FWIW, meta just came back. lol
 

 Panic Room

Help! The Meta is exploding!
If anybody wants me I'll be in there

hopes it is postponed an hour
They listened to me! :-P
 
2 hours ago, by Tim Post
Just kidding all, we're not really splitting. This was the most elaborate hoax for a rep-cap EVAR.
Actually the scheduled time is in 23 minutes..
 
dammit too early still
 
12:08 AM
False start, on the developing team. That's a five-yard penalty, remains first down.

@3ve It's currently 01:08 UTC.
 
gone again
 
While ya'll wait, go watch this
 
It was scheduled at 00:30
 
You forget DST
 
12:09 AM
@rene still there for me
 
curses weird timestuffs
 
The Demonic & Satanic Timeswitch
 
Yeah
 
@StackStatus But think of the unicorns! And the waffles!
 
Caching
 
12:09 AM
or something like that
 
It depends which server I hit I guess
 
If I hit the active tab it goes to area51 for me
 
WE ARE OUT OF COFFEE
 
12:14 AM
It doesn't matter if you panic as long as you don't panic.
 
something bad happened
 
A generic unfortunate event occurred

IT HAS NOT STOPPED HAPPENING

meta.stackexchange.com has stopped redirecting, and now displaying an error as though it's a real offline site.
 
Stack Exchange is currently offline, we'll be back shortly!
 
the link to http://meta.stackoverflow.com is not helpful on that page...
 
Lix
12:17 AM
That blog post from 2 months ago really explains a lot :P
 
sigh Stupid eBay sellers. "The tracking information says the item was delivered. Please check that you received it." - "It says it was delivered to El Monte, CA. I live in Omaha, NE. You live in El Monte, CA."
 
It takes me to meta.SO offline page..

@3ventic'sShadow don't even joke!
 
Anonymous
@3ventic'sShadow It's cached. Try adding a /? after the domain.
 
So @animuson, looking forward to becoming a normal single-diamond mod?
 
12:19 AM
fify
 
On an unrelated note, my rep tab in my top bar doesn't work. Anyone experiencing that also?
 
[blocked] The page at 'https://meta.stackexchange.com/' was loaded over HTTPS, but ran insecure content from 'http://sstatic.net/error-director.js': this content should also be loaded over HTTPS.
 
@Doorknob Go report it on... uh...

@Undo Hahaha :D

@Doorknob My profile on StackExchange.com also fails to load.
 
@Undo meta.SR so you can migrate it later :p
 
heh
 
Meet the hackers who want to attack U.S. companies. Who are they? What do they want? The answers might just scare you http://bit.ly/1qJc1WW
 
12:20 AM
that... would work :P
 
Probably because they contain content from meta.SO, which is unavailable
 
Some stuff on the site might be nsfw, but has anybody else heard of this?
 
I could claim 'first migration to mSE'
 
@Undo Yeah!
 
12:21 AM
We're all aliens!
:D
 
Uh-oh. My SE account 404's or something :P
Maybe nick did thump me :(
 
I just get an error :(
 
THE HAPPENING TRAIN IS STOPPING AT STACK EXCHANGE STATION, AND BY STOPPING AT I MEAN GO RIGHT THROUGH
 
So @badp's still drunk.
 
@Doorknob I'm not. I was just abducted by them.
 
12:23 AM
Or is that always?
 
Meta's down. Where's everyone going to go to post their off-topic programming questions?
 
@animuson Implying that I abducted you? >:D
 
I don't even have an account hah
 
@Mysticial happening.stackexchange.com
 
"ALIEN INVASION!" "...I just see a doorknob." "I KNOW!!!!!"
 
12:24 AM
@Mysticial Yahoo! Answers..?
 
@3ventic'sShadow You can manually access the account tab by appending ?tab=accounts - no one can access their main profile though.
 
^
 
What exactly does an F5 button on a door do? Check if your access code worked again?

SIDEWAYS
 
This chat was supposed to not work.
 
@Laura I'm obeying the image and using my refresh button instead.
 
Lix
12:26 AM
no one said anything about CTRL+R
 
@Doorknob pretty sure the page is cached, cause mine won't load
 
CMD-R FTW! :D
 
Hey, I just caught my meta.se page refreshing on its own
 
We need a backup plan if this room stops working.

 Panic Room

Help! The Meta is exploding!
 
12:26 AM
@Doorknob It won't.
 
BUT IT MIGHT
 
It might.
 
@Doorknob Gathering in front of SE headquarters with torches and pitchforks?
 
@animuson That's always an option
 
12:27 AM
Everyone buy a plane ticket to New York
 
It's the only option.
 
> "WE ARE META. OR WE USED TO BE. GIVE US BACK OUR META"
 
"We want Meta!" clap clap clapclapclap
 
The star list just exploded btw. :P
 
you are wrong, stars don't explode but implode
 
12:29 AM
I've got to go now :(
be back in a while
 
@Undo Nooooooooo!
 
Lix
@Undo - don't worry, you'll still get a "I helped murder meta" badge...
 
@badp happening central is going to go down
It's on Chat.MSO
 
12:31 AM
@GnomeSlice no, it's on chat.SE
 
@GnomeSlice He "accidentally" switched it to meta and now he can't switch it back
 
lol
 
Because he doesn't have mod powar on meta
Heh
 
The chat host is chat.SE
so it will still be up
it's just got the MSO skin
 
You can set the room's parent site to meta.SE already
 
12:32 AM
oh
 
except that making a new message does a post to /something/something
instead of chat.sockets.stackexchange.com
 
?
 
poke
 
@Manishearth yes
 
12:34 AM
testing if chat is down yet
 
pokes @Manish with sharp stick
 
@Manishearth it has not stopped happening

Woohoo!
 
output=$(curl -i -X HEAD meta.stackexchange.com -s |grep -v Date)
echo "$output"
while true; do

output2=$(curl -i -X HEAD meta.stackexchange.com -s |grep -v Date)

 echo "Something happened" | espeak
 alert

output=$output2

So you know immediately when the MSE headers change

Classic MSO theme back, all of a sudden.
 
@JeremyBanks Try again.
 
It's done! Let's start making bets on when the first OT programming question come in.
 
Done!!!

@AnnonomusPerson It had the new theme from MSE, but it changed back, and continues to show the old MSO theme after a hard reload.

Q: Thank you for the new meta!

ManishearthThis post is just to express gratitude to the team for the work they put in to splitting up the metas. The new Meta is awesome! :D May your lives be long and filled with waffles!

 
Wow the add comment box it really large...
 
Lix
 
Chat hasn't gone down. IT HASN'T STOPPED HAPPENING
 
Oy!
 
12:50 AM
I CANT CLOSE ON MSO :(
 
WHAT'S GOING ON?
 
Hmmm, if the app is going to notify me of new meta questions now, I'm going to have to turn off the notification sounds...
 
the post cutoff is 250K

How... do I get to mSE?
 
Help
 
WAHOOOOO
 
Chrome crashed
Logged out
Can't log back in to meta on computer
Am chatting from phone
:-(
 
12:53 AM
Ah, here we are.
 
Because MSO doesn't have any of the old questions yet
 
@3ventic'sShadow I see.
 
It won't for a short time, possibly later today - I can't start filling up the migration queue until everything is stabilized.
 
Something seems weird about the design.... hmmm....
Ohhh two reasons:
1.) No unicorns in the design:
 
Huge buttons
 
12:55 AM
@TimPost So what's currently happening?
 
@3ventic'sShadow Yep
 
And bigger font
 
@hichris123 A whole lot of building and changing of back end things
 
@Manishearth Why don't we change the source?!?!
 
12:56 AM
@AnnonomusPerson as in?
 
We could move this completely if we wanted to....
 
Yeah, I'd prefer if this room was just moved
 
And chat changes, which just got pushed to our development tier
 
@Manishearth @Manish not with a 200pt font... .ahhhh
 
IT HAS NOT STOPPED HAPPENING
 
12:57 AM
@TimPost So chat.mSO -> chat.MSE?
 
chat.meta.stackexchange goes straight to chat.SE
I don't know if that's the intended outcome though
 
@hichris123 yep
 
@Oded Huh, cool. So basically all that changes is chat.meta.stackoverflow is now chat.meta.stackexchange?
 
Yeah
 
1:01 AM
The recent badges is very informative: meta.stackoverflow.com/help/badges
 
Is it going to award me four yearling badges on the new MSO now?
 
1:31 AM
We're back!
 
Anonymous
Phew!
 
Wow - that's a cool theme.
 
Yay back!
 
BLUE
is the new brown
 
YOOHOO
FUN!
 
1:37 AM
@hichris Should I move Charcoal back to no owner and change the title back?
Title back...
 
@AnnonomusPerson ... I don't think you can.
 
@hichris123 I have privs for some odd reason....
 
MSO is quite random, showing 3 or 60k+ questions (yep, I know it's still under migration)

Apparently not everybody can access this room at the moment.

Nope. Your link gives me a 404, and chat.meta.stackexchange.com redirects to chat.stackexchange.com. — michaelb958 2 mins ago
 
1:40 AM
I can, and that's meaningless because I never come in here.
Well, bye!
 
@JeremyBanks: maybe joking?
Not sure

@Qantas94Heavy It sounds like the DNS wasn't updated in time, and some people have temporarily cached bad entries.

It is there, but we lacked a DNS entry, it should sort out for you shortly (also, please try incognito / flushing cache) — Tim Post ♦ 2 mins ago
