In response to Sklivvz request, we can update the 404, Error, and captcha images as part of site update, but I could use some help brainstorming images that better represent the community. Please post suggestions as answers below.

NOTE: In order to not delay the launch of the new design, we may retroactively change these after the new design goes live.

Here are the current images:

  • bigfoot (404)

    bigfoot

  • weird Darwin thing (captcha)

    darwinoid

  • ufo (error)

    ufo

  • I'm in favor of the ufo error, also featured here – Paul Oct 5 '15 at 22:09
  • Bigfoot is fine, but its height should be reduced. – octosquidopus Oct 10 '15 at 1:29

Vote on this if you think we deserve the original Big Foot image for the 404 page

Vote on this if the artificially enhanced green and yellow of the original UFO image stabs your eyes, and want to use the original image for the 500 page, instead :-)

  • The wording confuses me. I see two versions of this image: the greyscale with yellows and this colour version. Both are described here as "original". – Anko Oct 8 '15 at 23:33
  • @Anko this image is the original, the other two are modified. The other two are part of the old skin of this site (hence: original), and this is a proposed change. – Sklivvz Oct 8 '15 at 23:36

Vote on this if you think Darwin is awesome even without weird gears instead of a brain and he will guard us from spam bots on the captcha page anyways:

Vote on this if you think change is a mistake, and we should keep the ufo (error) page.

  • The problem is the quality of the image, not the subject. How do I vote? – Sklivvz Oct 6 '15 at 8:56
  • Never mind, I've added my own answer for that. – Sklivvz Oct 6 '15 at 9:21

Vote on this if you wish people would just leave well enough alone, and we should keep the bigfoot (404) page.

Vote on this if you think there was never a remake better than the original, and we should keep the weird Darwin thing (CAPTCHA).

Einstein on a bicycle (404):

    Einstein found so many things that I think his image is particularly unsuitable for a Not Found page. – Anko Oct 7 '15 at 11:30

For the CAPTCHA, some (preferably original) variation of this quote:

    Could this be confusing? People might click on the "link". – Oddthinking Oct 6 '15 at 0:48

For the error page

I stole it from here - who knows where they stole it from.

    I don't think a quote would look good on a 404 page :/ – Shougo Makishima Oct 6 '15 at 18:16
