You are not doing anything wrong. Digital Ocean has reported a delay of in the creation of new droplets due to maintenance. Check out the warning that I got from them: <br> <br>Scheduling Delay <br> <br>We have deployed code to redistribute our scheduling events and expect events to process through over the next hour, events other than creates should process now in their usual time. <br> <br>Due to overwhelming demand in our new AMS2 Data Center, we are experiencing a 15 minute delay in events processing, we have deployed code to redistribute our scheduling and expect events to clear within the next 30 minutes.
