Money should be nearing the end of its beta, so what should the exception screens be for Money?

The exception screens are

  • 404 (Page not found)
  • Error
  • Captcha (the screen where you verify you are human).
  • Won't Jin, the SE designer, be the primary one dealing with these questions with community input?

    @justkt certainly, but most sites have these questions answered for his perusal before he actually says "Time to design the site". Nothing here is final, but it's a lot of useful input for Jin.

What about a cracked piggy bank?

    A side question? Are piggy banks worldwide?

    @MrChrister Since it's been decided that the logo for the site is a piggy bank, and therefore it's international enough as a symbol, this could work for the error page. Commented Aug 3, 2013 at 4:48

The captcha page could display a high-frequency trading system (i.e. a computer trading stocks): alt text

The error or 404 page could display a bounced check:

alt text

I also like the cracked piggy bank idea.

    I really like the robo trader idea for the captcha!

Perhaps the 404 or error page could show an ATM (cash machine) with a "not in service" or "out of order" message being displayed.


I think captcha page should display an ATM (since it's a robot/machine that produces money :), error page might display a falling stock chart, for 404 it'd be funny to draw a 404-dollar bill, but that might be too much work. Maybe broken piggy bank as Alex B suggests.


A message explaining that the paperwork from the International Monetary Fund is hung up, but should be done shortly and the site will be back online then.
