For a similar discussion (though the issue appears to have been resolved over there), see this Meta.Biology post.

To reproduce:

  • Go to the Questions link/tab
  • Select the last page (in our case, page #9 with 50 questions per page)
  • Now, try to go back the page before that one (page #8)

I get the following:

enter image description here

Unlike when I had the problem on Biology.SE, this seems to occur with 15 or 30 items per page selected as well.

I'm using Chrome 20, but I can reproduce the problem on Firefox 13.

  • Status no repro here, chrome latest. Do you have any tags ignored?

  • @BenBrocka No tags ignored. Others were able to reproduce it on Bio when I had trouble with it over there. Hmmm. Jul 20, 2012 at 3:58
  • Yes, I seem to get the problem on 6, 7, and 8, but not 5 or 9. (ubuntu 11.10; chrome 21) Jul 20, 2012 at 4:27
  • @JeromyAnglim Exactly, and then everything that was supposed to be on 9 is on 5, and I think it progresses back from there. Jul 20, 2012 at 4:29
  • Never fear, I have Tim Stone on this issue! He'll either determine the cause or get the team's attention :-)

    OK, that is most decidedly odd. Investigating! Jul 20, 2012 at 21:22
  • What's really going to bake your noodle... when I can get page 6 to load... the content is page 9. Something is not right... Jul 20, 2012 at 21:41

Something was a bit broken here re caching/paging. I've made some short-term fixes while I investigate; it should work OK now.

  • Awesome, thanks Marc! Jul 21, 2012 at 5:10
  • Thanks for taking care of that so quickly Marc!

I have asked about this on Meta Stack Overflow, the "mother meta" for all the Stack Exchange sites. Hopefully we can get an answer there (if the team doesn't also see it here)

EDIT: Marc Gravell♦ has fixed this bug. (See his answer)

  • Any rep you get above 50, I expect in dollars in my PayPal account. Jul 20, 2012 at 13:16
  • Does PayPal do conversions from Unicorn Dollars now? :-)
