Error: 'Slow down, too many requests from this IP address'

Upon visiting pages on the DevForum I have a random chance of getting rejected for ‘Slow down, too many requests from this IP address’.

Example from devforum.roblox.com/categories.json
r

Error on topic page:
Ratelimit

I am sure that this is not a problem with how many requests I’m making to the DevForum as it seems to be totally random when I get this error and when I’m allowed in. I also, have actually used the DevForum less than how much I usually use it.

This error affects every part of the DevForum, but only seems to affect a specific browser on a specific device on my IP.

I can confirm, this exact issue has been impacting me heavily. Here is some extra information I have discovered about this:

Note that I am using the latest version of Chrome with no browser extensions.

Screenshots:

Also, an “Error 429” notice appears whenever I like a post or use the search tool.

This has also been a huge problem for me. I’m currently unable to access the forums (to post this reply I had to switch to incognito).

Here are some of the errors I got before I was completely blocked by the “Slow down, too many requests from this IP address” message.

This problem started yesterday at about noon (1:30 PM PST) and has seemed to get progressively worse.

Edit:
(11:00 AM PST) I can access the forums again. It seems to go off and on. Edit: Never mind, it won’t let me save this edit. I got a 429 error then, after retrying a moment later, was able to save the edit.
Edit:
I can’t see my notifications either:

I also keep experiencing this; however refreshing the page seems to fix it temporarily.

I am seeing this problem too. I thought it was from testing a game that saves too much. But maybe not?

Also occurring for me, it’s happened on my phone and laptop.

Happens to me aswell. But there is everything fine with my internet. Its very strange.

I am experiencing this issue on iOS 15.0. It will randomly not load and then when I look at the file it is saying wont load it is saying “Slow down, too many requests.”

As I was reading this post I opened the devforum in another tab and got this error :fearful:

I can confirm this too.
I’m getting web page errors, HTTP 403 errors when trying to post a reply, and sometimes “Slow down, too many requests from this IP address” as well.

Edit; I was literally gonna report the bug here, but then I saw a bunch of posts about it.

This bug needs to be investigated immediately; I can no longer flag any rule violating posts because of this:

LOL When I tried to get to this topic, I got the error page. How ironic.

I confirm.

The last few days I have been getting this error while searching for information on the forum.
You have to look for information on third-party resources.

Browser - Chrome

This has been happening to me a lot recently too. The only reason I saw this topic was because I was going to make my own.

This issue is getting worse from the time I posted on this thread. I was prevented from going on the devforum after a few hours of inactivity with this error.
