A couple of minutes ago, the front page of the main site showed all the normal header and sidebar stuff, but no questions. I refreshed and re-opened the page several times, and it didn't help.

The problem went away on its own. The problem doesn't appear to have lasted more than a few minutes.

As of Sat 2013-02-09 02:25:55 UTC, I'm seeing the problem again -- and it just went away again.

  • I got a similar problem at the same time, except i got a page saying, sorry the site is having problems as such it is only in read only mode, or something to that effect – Rhys Feb 9 '13 at 21:24

    @RhysW: If you ran into that in the last few hours, it's a different issue, caused by the migration to the New York data center. I saw the missing questions problem before that migration started. – Keith Thompson Feb 9 '13 at 21:29

    It was a result of the data center move, network wide temporary outages: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/166885/… – Rarity Feb 12 '13 at 16:58
  • @Rarity: I thought it happened before the move started, but I could be mistaken (and it's probably not worth exploring further unless it happens again). – Keith Thompson Feb 12 '13 at 18:07

This was transient during the migration between data centers.
