Well, no site problem without the chance for a little design test. I noticed that other sites in the network employ a specialized "we are offline" site (not the 404 site or the "there was an error" site) congruent with their individual designs, here in an example from Science Fiction and Fantasy: enter image description here

But when visiting ours, it wasn't our great new graduated design, but the generic StackExchange design: enter image description here

Was this just a caching problem from my side, was this forgot to adapt in the graduation process or was this deliberately generalized for new SE sites?

  • Might be caching because to me it shows the new design or it might be possible either way.

As can be viewed under http://sstatic.net/movies/app_offline.htm, our "we are offline" page has been largely updated to match the site's design (even though the color of visited links doesn't seem to match our site's color palette at all, but that could be considered a minor problem):

So it was likely just a caching problem.
