Droplet is simply stuck at creating, I even opened a ticket (1252401) but the support is too lazy to even reply. What is this issue?

Dude great idea! For those who dont get it use the firefox inspector to find the html for the destroy button and remove the disabled setting associated with the destroy button. Then you can actually click it and force the destroy command to be sent. By the way I always seem to have trouble with New York data centers.

if you want to destroy the droplet this will help its very simple to destroy the stuck droplet, few minutes ago i encountered same problem , after thinking for a few seconds a got the idea to fix this. To destroy the droplet which is stuck in creation mode, click the droplet and move to destroy tab and right click on destroy button and select inspect Elements and remove/delete the “disabled” text from the destroy button class which should be highlighted.

if you did not understand tell me i can create a video for that.
