Bug appears at this link:

Chrome/MacOS Ventura/Macbook Air


I’ll try deleting something.

@doxr in the future: I can delete perfectly fine. To check, I went into CLUI, checked trash, and there it is.

Did you try in a different browser/device/(just guessing)wifi? What are the results?

BTW I searched up 503, I think it only gives that error for a bit, and at a later time, it doesn’t give you any error. The topic is 3 hours old currently so that could be a reason.

I can delete any other Repl fine, just not this one. I already contacted support and they referred me here.

Any update on this? I would like to delete this Repl to free up my account storage.

I removed all the files inside the Repl and changed the name, still it doesn’t work.

Now I have an empty repl which I cannot remove:

Is the repl private? I can’t access it.

Randomly came across this, and I still cannot delete this. Maybe it’s because it was linked to a Bounty I completed

the undeletedable repl, wow


I’m sorry that this has gone on for so long with no update. I have flagged this to the team again and will follow up once I have an update!


Could you provide more info for the Repl you can’t delete? Is there anything special about it? What did you use it for?


We have just increased our logging for this issue in order to better identify the cause. @CoderGautamYT could you try deleting the Repl again?


It was a Repl use to submit a bounty, but it has been a while since the bounty was close and it was just sitting there taking up storage.

I tried now from the app and I think it worked!!
Thanks a lot!
