'Slow down Turbo' message when I hit the migrate to Meta

It looks like when I click on migrate to Meta I get the 'Slow Down Turbo' message. I've checked and the two that I moved went over. So I'm not sure I understand why I'm not kept in the Meta view which is what it normally does.

Okay, this seems like a simple issue. You're just being redirected to the wrong place. Our internal name for meta is ifixit_meta. For some reason you're being sent to the dozuki URL rather than the custom subdomain we have for it. You're seeing an error because we only allow pages do display if the URL matches what we expect.

We'll get this fixed. In the meantime, migrating should still work just fine, it just won't be as pretty.

UPDATE (3/30/2018)

This is fixed.

Sounds like you're hitting the rate limit for the "Migrate to Meta" vote. We should probably have that disabled for mods. How often do you hit the limit?

@evan - I would say I do one or two a week if that. So not that many times in moving things over. I've tried to move a few the other way when they really belong in Answers but it looks like I don't have the clout for that yet ;-}


Wait. Are you getting the error message every time you try to move something over?


@evan - Sadly yes, every time! Here's a test Q I posted and moved over: and see above screen snapshot.


@evan - Any Ideas? the real answer I moved is here: Just a test! to check out moving answer to Meta

Some how it's going to instead, and then somehow getting moved to The URL link I posted above is when I got the message at the time I moved the question over.


I haven't had a chance to look into this just yet. I'll keep you posted as soon as I find out what's going on.

Hey, is iFixit and iFixit meta down? I keep getting

“ took too long to respond.” Same for iFixit. Just with www instead of meta.

Other websites are fine.

@captainsnowball - Aiden, I don't think this is related as this has been an issue for quite a few days.
