There is a bug where I see a privacy error on all meta.foo.stackexchange.com sites. For example, if I try to enter meta.retrocomputing.stackexchange.com into my browser, I get this warning: enter image description here

Can someone check this out?

  • Are you going to http:// or https:// ? – Catija Dec 23 '20 at 16:19
  • I'm going to https:// – ARI FISHER Dec 23 '20 at 16:20
  • It works with retrocomputing.meta.stackexchange.com – ARI FISHER Dec 23 '20 at 16:20

    Oh. Yeah. I can never remember which is the "correct" version. We switched it at some point. My understanding is that we don't support the meta.[sitename].stackexchange.com any more since we swapped the order. – Catija Dec 23 '20 at 16:22
  • Could probably make this a duplicate of the announcement meta.stackexchange.com/questions/292058/… – Catija Dec 23 '20 at 16:23
  • I get that.. I would think that it would be a good idea to still have it be in the certificate so the warning doesn't pop up every time someone tries to access it. – ARI FISHER Dec 23 '20 at 16:24
  • This is by design (I think). All meta URL's are now <site>.meta.stackexchange.com; any meta.<site>.stackexchange.com should redirect. – Ollie Dec 23 '20 at 16:24

    I understand... but my possibly faulty memory is that we actually switched the order because getting the certificates would be really difficult. Doing it anyway defeats the purpose of swapping the url around. – Catija Dec 23 '20 at 16:27
  • Oh, ok. I see the response and that is coorect – ARI FISHER Dec 23 '20 at 16:28
  • Ah. Thanks, @animuson 😀 – Catija Dec 23 '20 at 16:28
