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

Also occurring on Firefox.

This doesn’t appear to be an issue with IPs at all- using a VPN briefly to test if it would allow me to check DevForum, this didn’t work.
Also not a requests issue, because I… haven’t been on DevForum since yesterday (Nov 13) before I began to get the error, nor was my computer even on?

This needs to be fixed ASAP.

Quick fix: Completely close out of your browser and reopen it.


Here my topic on it is again, It’s still an issue, and I got the IP error today, just now.


I just got this exact problem a few minutes ago, and it’s too frequent. I’ve only visited the DevForum only 2 times today and still got the “Slow down, too many requests from this IP address” error. Inspecting says the site returns a 429 Too Many Requests error.


This is now probably universal to all OSes and browsers.
We’ve seen this happening on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. Affecting iOS, OSX, and Windows.

It’s safe to assume this is a universal, Roblox-side bug.


This is happening to me too, I have to wait for hours to get on dev forum. I can’t use VPN to bypass it and it blocked every device in my home network.

I just experienced this and found this thread about it. Ironically, it wouldn’t let me access this thread for the past hour due to the error message.

Nov 15: This is still occurring.

It’s not an IP problem. Completely close out of your browser then reopen it again.

It happens on my phone and other devices too so I think it’s not the browser problem

November 15. I keep getting the error, using Windows 11 (Edge Browser) and iOS 15.1 (DiscourseHub App), getting errors 429/504.

I started reproducing it on November 11 around 1:00 p.m. PDT.


And yes, it gets tedious, because just typing characters in the search box, or reading 10-15 posts crashes for about 2 minutes and it works again.

I hope the problem will be fixed ASAP, thanks

I left the DevForum tab open and went away with no activity…

When I tried to navigate tho, it came with this error.

It could be a auto-refresh spamming the api, not sure.

November 18.

I readed several topics on the forum, and I did not experienced this error. I could mark as fixed, in my case.

Nope, it’s still in many other forms.
