Hey friend,

Thanks for writing about this. This is a filter on some new users for a period of time. We have in place some measures that prevent damaging abuse scenarios that we’ve encountered, many of which will not make sense to anyone outside of our staff. My apologies for any frustration that caused.

For anyone noticing the same in the future, you can reach out to our support team about this:

For you, I’ve enabled your account to use larger droplets.
