    The custom error/404 pages of Alice have gone. Replaced by the outline of a hazard sign. What is happening to creativity and sensibility on Stack Exchange? Where's the fun? The charm?

Yes it is, same for the 404 page and the CAPTCHA page images.



My guess would be NO, it is from Through the Looking Glass. You see: Alice in Wonderland has playing cards, while the sequel Through the Looking Glass has chess pieces.

  • Yes, that looks like something from the first chapter of Through the Looking Glass, though I haven't got it handy now.

  • I think you're correct! I was just thinking "Alice" in general.
