So, I saw a question over on Meta.SE about the 404 page images and how they all relate to the subject of the site to some degree. It made me wonder, what's our 404 image...

Movies & TV 404 image

It's all Egyptian to me... or some other made-up language.

Can anyone give some context for this image?

They're the hieroglyphs from the countdown timer on Lost.

You can read more about them here (specifically, these are our 404 page symbols because in Lost, they basically mean system failure).

    Was this voted on? That's pretty cryptic too. – cde Aug 27 '15 at 22:39

    @cde I don't think so, they were just made by the design team. But anyway, the error and captcha pages are much better anyway. – Napoleon Wilson Aug 29 '15 at 13:44
