Repl.it won't load student's project

I'm a teacher and my class is using repl.it for a web project. One student reported not being able to load her project over the weekend and it's not loading in class either. She tried multiple platforms and browsers.

Other students are not having a problem. Is there a workaround?

Replit has a limited cloud storage for every user
Excess use of storage will not let it load any project. You can still fork a project but you will not load it. If we look at the membership page it will show some sort of data like it shows 500mb for starter pack. That much cloud data it has. My suggestion is to either delete a few projects or create a new account. My best recommendation is to make a new account but if you have a couple of bucks to spare just buy hacker plan

I know I am late but hope it helps the new commers

WORKAROUND: It was only one specific project. When I forked it she was able to edit the copy. She still can't get the original to load.

Bizarre.

Hey @DrJamesJames, glad you found a workaround, but this shouldn't happen. The original repl (linked in this post) is loading fine for me, how does it look on your end?

I was experiencing the same problem with one of my repls. It would load everything but the code. If I tried to load other repls, it would work. For my repl though, when I tried loading it after 5ish hours after it initially wouldn't load, it started working again. I don't know what's causing that to happen.

There’s probably no fix, so report it on https://repl.it/bugs

12/3/21. It happened to me today. I refreshed my page and it works fine now.

This is likely a problem with repl.it. When I was working on surviv3 I encountered the same problem. The workaround
I got was to make a .replit file.
Inside it, put

run="echo work" language="html"

Or something like that based on what language is needed.
