Creating new droplet is taking.... FOREVER.....

Posted September 4, 2014 6.1k views

I am very new to DigitalOcean, and creating new Droplet.

I am seeing this message …for 20 mins.

“We are now creating your droplet (Approximately 60 seconds remaining)”

What is wrong?

I tried again, refreshed, but… same.

Am I missing something? I want my droplet.

    We are currently working to resolve event processing delays for all droplet events across the cloud. This will affect droplet creation, power cycling, destroys, and other related events. We will provide updates as we have more information to share.

Unfortunately earlier today we experienced some issues with event processing. The problem has since been resolved. If you’re still seeing issues, please open a support ticket.

In the future, check in on our status page to see any known problems.
