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)
- Captcha (the screen where you verify you are human).
What about a cracked piggy bank?
The captcha page could display a high-frequency trading system (i.e. a computer trading stocks):
The error or 404 page could display a bounced check:
I also like the cracked piggy bank idea.
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.
