Can't add a project to the community garden?

I was trying to add a new project on the garden, following the step by step actions of the tutorial.

The last step I can reach is:

Despite waiting, checking the github repositories additions, no new repopsitory appears.

Looks like the robot script stopped here

Help :slight_smile:

Have you been logged in into github before starting and used the same github username during the process?

I just tried logged off as well as logged on. Actually the usrinput.txt file gets touched but is empty.

Confirmed it does not work any more with the same test i did with other ‘garden up-loads’ reports.
I have a .zip and a mainpicture.jpg and are logged into git as the other times. It always worked and now:

I started to dig into this and pretty quickly realized that I didn’t bring the SSH keys to the community garden server with me and they are not stored online anywhere which makes sense from a security stand point, but it’s slowing me down. I’ll see if I can get someone to dig through my old computer in person.

I just want to let you all know that I haven’t forgotten about this. I’ve got the SSH keys to the server now, but I set it up so that it won’t accept connections from IP addresses outside the us as a security precaution…unfortunately I now have an IP address outside the us :slightly_frowning_face: so bear with me I think I am just going to set up a new server

VPN or Tor with a preset exit node? :laughing: (just kidding)

I believe it is working again! If you have any issues with creating a project now, try uploading an empty zip file and add big files later through github.

Sorry the garden is so buggy! I am working on a much more stable replacement right now!
