What happens when you lose Hacker plan?
DillonB07 (25)


I am a Hacker and have lots of private repls, as well as some that are boosted and Always On.

What will happen to those repls if I unsubscribe from the Hacker plan? Will they stay private, or will they all become public?

Also, I've heard about something called Hacker News when I was reading a post about Replit. But I can't see this anywhere on Replit. Can someone tell me where it is?

I think all your private repls stay private and I don’t think hacker news exists.

  1. the repls will all actually stay private. You just won't be able to edit them.
  2. hacker news is not part of replit

I think I would rather have them turn normal and public than not be able to edit them...

Thanks though!

you can still make them public if you want, its just if you don't do that you can't edit it. @DillonB07

that seems much better! I thought that work would be lost unless you decided to copy and paste it all

Hacker News is a news/social media site that Replit happened to be featured on. It is not a thing on Replit.
