Has the ability to create an anonymous repl been removed?

No, I think you can still make an anonymous repl, even without signing in. But it just won't save.

Can you try doing this? I click "Create Repl" at www.repl.it but it redirects me to a sign in prompt.

@ForcedToSignUp
oh, they probably changed it yeah. You have to sign up now.

Thanks. I thought it was just me that saw this prompt.

Let's see for a bit first. I was hoping for someone to provide a workaround or an announcement posted by repl or statement from mods, because surely a significant change like this must have some announcement of some sort.

Partly what I admired repl about was its anonymity and lack of need to sign up. Now that it is gone, it is disappointing.

No. Until you sign up/sign in to Repl.it, then you can create a anonymous repl for testing. And their data won't saved to the repl.it database.

A month before, I can create an anonymous repl without signing in by clicking "Create a repl" at www.repl.it OR hitting the "+" button at the top right corner WITHOUT signing up / in.

Now that button is gone unless I sign in.

Partly why I use repl is because it has anonymity for free
