I just hit the error page on the main site and it's still showing the sketchy image:

Sketchy error image

You can see it in place here:

Shouldn't this be a nice (well you know what I mean) image in keeping with the site theme?

    Now soliciting suggestions.. post possible error images as answers here! – Emmett Nov 7 '12 at 1:23
  • I suppose what we want is an artistic "fail" photo. Check the one out on DIY - diy.stackexchange.com/error – ChrisF Nov 7 '12 at 9:00
  • I thought we had a topic way, way back when this site started, and a bunch of images were submitted. I believe the community back then also selected the one they wanted. Is there a reason that image was not used? – jrista Nov 9 '12 at 5:05
  • Here is the original thread with 404 images: meta.photo.stackexchange.com/questions/13/… – jrista Nov 9 '12 at 5:06
  • @jrista - I missed that. I think that one of those images should be used. – ChrisF Nov 9 '12 at 8:52
  • @jrista Ah thanks, I missed that thread. We'll take a look... – Emmett Nov 9 '12 at 19:56

    The 404 page from that thread is now live! Still need a good error image though... – Emmett Nov 9 '12 at 22:41

    I dunno, I think that broken-lens image would be better on the error page, and the 404 page should have something that better reflects the concept of "not found"... – Martha Nov 12 '12 at 23:27

    @Martha I kinda agree.. maybe use the something along the lines of a pile of SD cards for the 404 page? – Emmett Nov 13 '12 at 0:32

Based on the comments (from Martha and Emmett in particular) to the question I think we should have:

  1. The current 404 image (a broken lens) as the error page.
  2. A pile of SD cards as the 404 page.
