Can’t close question?

This has happened a couple of times recently. Vote to close a question (that already has votes to close) - the little loading spinner appears beside 'close', spins for about 30 seconds and then comes back with a message saying that an error has occurred.

(Using Chrome as a browser, just in case that makes a difference).

I know this isn't a big deal, but just thought I'd mention it...

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have you tried turning it off and on again? –  Ólafur Waage May 28 '10 at 15:12
most of the time, I fixed those kinds with just Ctrl+F5, and then try again. –  YOU May 28 '10 at 15:13
I'm occasionally getting the dialog but no radio buttons in Chrome. I have to use FF if I want to vote. –  ChrisF May 28 '10 at 15:18
@Ólafur Waage - I even tried uplugging the browser and giving it a kick. –  Paddy May 28 '10 at 15:38
@S.Mark - I also CTRL+F5, but the error remained when trying again. –  Paddy May 28 '10 at 15:38

I encountered this too, exactly as described.

We think this might be related to the requests per second throttling/limiting we were doing in nginx.

We've now switched to a requests-per-minute type throttling. See if that helps.
